Specific Return Policy for Online Sales 

We produce bespoke products upon request, utilizing intricate handcrafted practices and emphasizing a significant amount of customisation. This applies to all products available on our website: items that can be bought are made specifically upon the customer's request and to their specified characteristics, hence they are to be considered personalised products and, as such, not subject to returns policies (like mattresses, since the "return policy does not apply to custom products with non-standard dimensions or custom padding"). The photo shown is just a sample of a potential basic colour and material combination that will be specially made upon order. Hence, selecting this particular version is a conscious decision for customisation. Silence will be taken as confirmation that the standard version is satisfactory, yet it will still be deemed as an intentional choice of combination.  
After your purchase, we will contact you to confirm the colours and materials for the product that will be delivered. If your desired product requires special measurements or materials not found in our catalogue, we will provide a personalized estimate before payment. It is important to note that even if the configuration shown in the photo remains unchanged, the product is still considered custom-made and is non-returnable. This policy does not apply to one-of-a-kind or comparable products, which are subject to standard return policies unless further customization is requested. For all other products, the product description outlines various options that are available, and customers can contact us for further information. 
Items must be returned in their original state and packaging, complete with all labels attached, unless they were originally defective. As such, the items must not be damaged, soiled, washed, altered, or worn, and all of their labels and tags must remain intact. Midsummer Milano retains the authority to assess the condition of the returned item and to determine whether or not to issue a refund. 
Care and Maintenance 

Purchasing a Midsummer mattress is a wise investment for your sleep quality and the high-quality materials used. We would like to remind you that performing regular maintenance on your bedding is essential to increase your mattress's lifespan. 

The Midsummer mattress is made from 100% natural materials, including cotton, linen, horsehair, and wool, which adapt to your sleeping habits and body shape. Through use, the materials compress and the thickness of the used surfaces may decrease over time.Upon receiving your mattress, you may notice a mild scent, which is completely normal due to the use of natural materials. The scent will dissipate within a few weeks.  

Our Midsummer mattresses are made from natural materials, which are heavier than synthetic materials. Therefore, we recommend handling them with care. Once the cardboard box has been removed, the mattress must be transported in either the cellophane or cotton bag with the utmost caution. Please refrain from using the mattress handles. As the mattress is entirely handcrafted, it may exhibit stitching inaccuracies. Do not use any solvents or chemicals on the fabric. 

During winter and summer seasons, turn the mattress over (upside down) as Midsummer mattresses have two sides - one for winter and one for summer. Also, rotate the mattress (head-feet) once a week for the first three months and then at least twice a month afterward. Carry the mattress flatly. in a flat position, as the springs are prone to collapse if it is moved upright. If this should occur, the mattress will return to its original dimensions after a few weeks of regular use. Avoid placing the mattress on an unsuitable bed frame and do not jump on it. It is also recommended to avoid using an iron or hair dryer on the mattress fabric.  
To eliminate dust, brush lightly or use a low-powered vacuum cleaner. It is important to note that to sanitize the mattress, steam vaporisers or steam sterilizers should not be used as this will not resolve mild issues.  However, exposing the product to water, washing or ironing it will have an adverse effect on its consistency and longevity.  
To ensure optimal performance, it's crucial that the mattress is placed directly on a ventilated support. We advise against using electric blankets, as this may impact the product's uniformity and durability. It is considered best practice to safeguard the product with a high-quality mattress cover. 
Unwrap the packaging within one day of delivery. Otherwise, open it to ensure adequate air circulation, preventing the buildup of moisture. A period of adaptation is always necessary upon purchasing a new mattress. It's normal to require several weeks or more to become accustomed to your new mattress, particularly if you've been sleeping on a different one for an extended period of time. The flakes in your mattress serve to firmly secure the padding. They are designed to break under immense pressure, but are simple to replace. 
15 Years Warranty and Exclusive Renovation Service  
Our mattresses come with a 15-year warranty for spring breakage. Register your mattress and activate the warranty at www.midsummer.com. Proper maintenance can extend the lifespan of our mattresses indefinitely. Hence, we provide an exclusive renovation service for older mattresses, which restores them to a nearly-new condition. The service involves disassembling the mattress, airing out the natural materials for an appropriate duration, restoring the original softness by re-carding them, replacing any potentially damaged springs (which is highly unlikely), and finally assembling everything anew with a brand new cover. Following this, your mattress will feel and function as if it were brand new and will be covered by an additional 15-year warranty. You will still relish the comfort of your mattress while also making a positive impact on the environment, as it will not end up in a landfill. The customer will be responsible for the cost of shipping and returning the mattress to Italy, along with a flat fee of 20% of the original cost to cover labour and the replacement cover.
