We remind you that every ZEN·ZERO product is handmade and therefore turns out to be a unique model. Therefore, although the products are represented on the Site in the best possible way, some differences may emerge between the photographic representation of the product on the Site and the actual product. The photographs of the products presented on the Site do not therefore constitute a contractual element, as they are merely and symbolically representative of the product being sold.
