Frequently Asked Questions
Can I order a sample?
Yes, we try to provide a true representation of the fabric with the photos that we offer on the product pages however due to computer screen calibration this may differ. Samples are the best way to ensure the fabric will meet expectations on colour and handle.
Samples can be ordered at £1 each and are sent with free delivery via Royal Mail and typically take 2-3 days to arrive.
What sizes are the samples?
Samples typically are approximately A5 in size. Please note we cannot guarantee pattern placements on samples received.

It's not letting me add the product to my basket, why?
We may be out of stock, please contact us to check when it is due back in.
It may be a fabric that will be re-stocked and if so, you will be given the option to leave your contact details so we can get in touch when stock arrives back in.
Some fabrics are limited clearance stock and will not return.

All fabric is printed in 'batches' and some can have slight variance in colour.
What if I need my fabric to be fire retardant?
Unless stated in the item specifications, our fabrics do not come fire treated and we are not able to offer FR treatment in house for the fabric we supply.
Always check with your upholsterer who will be able to advise you futher on fabric treatment required as some fabrics can be used with a barrier cloth.
For more information on FR fabrics visit our key words and phrases explained page.
