Care & Cleaning.
All of our fabric qualities have a relevant care guide available to download from each fabrics ‘technical specification’ (for logged in users only). Or please contact us to¬†request.

Care guides are also included with every fabric shipment.

Anti Soil & Stain Treatments.
Where we feel it necessary our fabrics are supplied with a suitable treatment, these treatments are designed to enhance the performance of a fabric under ‘normal use’ but do not in any way guarantee against all types of staining and marking.

We are able to offer NANOSPHERE fabric treatment on most of our qualities, please contact us for details.

Widths.
Our fabrics are available in +/- 140cm (55inch) as standard but some qualities can be supplied double width for special orders, please contact us for further information.

Pattern Repeats.
Where appropriate pattern repeats given relate to widths, please contact us for drop values (all measurements are approximate).

Colour Matching.
Due to the inherent nature of textiles slight shade and other minor variations can occur but are within acceptable trade tolerances. As with all of our patterning material, images on this website are just a guide and we cannot guarantee to match shades exactly.
