All our fabrics should be dry cleaned by a specialist company. Do not use steam when ironing glazed chintz. Colour Fastness
All our fabrics, trimmings and wall-coverings contain natural fibres and are not guaranteed against fading, particularly when exposed to direct sunlight or moonlight.
Colour may vary from one batch to the next. If an exact match is required, please request a cutting from stock and we will reserve the quantity you require for 10 days. Unfortunately stock cuttings are not available for wallpapers or trimmings.
Non-returnable cuttings are available of most of our fabrics on request.
However, if large samples are required these are supplied on loan for four weeks and will be invoiced without further notification if they are not returned within that period.
Minimum order for fabric is one metre. Unless otherwise stated, orders will be cut to the nearest 10cm.
Minimum order for trimmings and wallpapers are as specified on the respective supplier price page.
The price payable is that shown on the price list in force at the time of despatch. We reserve the right to alter prices or to withdraw fabrics from the range at any time without prior notice. We endeavour to ensure that our customers are supplied with up to the minute price lists.
