If you need to see more of your fabric before you buy, you can get a supersize sample for a small fee. These are 45x45cm and they should help to give you a much better idea of the pattern.
If you’re planning on making your own curtains or blinds, why not buy the linings from us as well? You can browse our linings here. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please call us.
In the textile industry, most fabrics are 140cm wide - the industry’s standard width. However, some can be 280 to 300cm wide and are known as ‘double width’ fabrics. When you order curtains or blinds from us in a double width fabric, we treat it as if it was 140cm in width and only charge you for the amount you use. This is partly because the manufacturing of curtains and blinds is calculated using standard widths. So you pay for no more fabric that you use and you get fewer seams in your curtains or blinds. However, if you buy the fabric by the metre, you'll receive the fabric in its full double width glory and the price will appear to double. This is because you're getting twice the amount of fabric than you would with a standard width fabric, and will probably need less of it.
Flame Retardant Fabrics
Our fabrics aren't flame retardant. If you'd like the fabrics for your curtains or blinds to go through a flame retardant treatment for FR certification, you need to let us know before you place your order. There will be an extra charge for this. Alternatively we can also source manufactured flame retardant fabrics for your products - give us a call on 0845 5000 400 to discuss your options.
For help with fabric calculations, or if you have any other questions about our products, please call us on 0845 5000 400 and we’ll be happy to help.
The safest and most efficient way of cleaning your curtains or blinds is to vacuum them in situ with a clean attachment.
However you may feel that your curtains need a deep clean after several years, in which case our curtains are dry clean only. This process can shrink the fabrics by up to 3%.
Our curtains or blinds should never go into a washing machine.
Show the dry cleaner this symbol and they will know which treatment your curtains need.
We strive to deliver your fabric in the best possible condition. However, natural fabrics can crush easily, so there is a minor chance they could be slightly creased on arrival. We recommend you simply hang them up straight away and the creases will disappear before your eyes. Ironing the fabric could be damaging and ruin your curtains.
Natural fabrics can stretch over time, especially loose weave linens. This is hardly noticeable unless the length of your curtains or blinds is critical. The added length can be up to 1cm.
Light Fastness and Fading
Our natural fabrics have varying degrees of light fastness depending on the range they are from. The best way to avoid fading and protect the colour of your fabric is to order a lined or interlined curtain.
Fabric Cut To Length
Our fabric is 100% natural, and we hope that you fall in love with your new curtains or blinds.
However, if you wish to cancel your fabric order we're happy to give a full refund as long as you cancel within 24 hours of placing the order. To do this, simply notify us by email.
We will be happy to give a full or partial refund if there is a significant problem with the quality of the fabric. However, we will not be able to do so if the fabric has already been cut. Make sure that you check all fabric for faults before cutting to avoid disappointment.
