Claims for non-arrival must be made within seven days of our invoice date.

Any liability of the Company for non-delivery of the Goods shall be limited to replacing the Goods within a reasonable time.

Colour Matching

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the closest possible colour match to our pattern book and other samples, we cannot guarantee to match every shade exactly.

Shrinkage

Always make allowances for possible shrinkage when making up curtains and loose covers. Any materials not offered as pre-shrunk or fixed-finished, tend to shrink when laundered or cleaned and can also show movement in certain atmospheric conditions. A 5-6% shrinkage is considered normal for fabrics not claimed to be shrink-resistant. Even after pre-shrinking, a fabric may still shrink up to 3%. For curtains we recommend generous hems, loosely stitched, in case alterations become necessary.

Cleaning

Instructions, where given should be followed carefully. This is particularly important because of the various fibres and finishes now available. Do not hesitate to ask if in doubt.

Please note: Fire Retardant back-coated fabric for upholstery must be dry-cleaned in situ. Fabric which has been treated for curtains or bedspreads and is dry cleanable must not be wetted out. If the fabric has been wetted out, in any way, it must be retreated for flammability.

It is most important that fabrics are dry-cleaned or washed (as specified) regularly to avoid becoming badly soiled. Remember soiling can prematurely weaken your fabric, cause fading of even the fastest dyes and affect flammability.

Claims

No claims or returns whatsoever can be accepted for any error once the fabric has been cut. Always check the fabric before cutting to ensure it is correct in every aspect and is to your satisfaction, if in doubt, do not cut; but contact our Sales Office.

Delivery Date

The company will do its best to dispatch orders promptly, but in the event of late deliveries the company will take no responsibility for any consequential loss incurred.

Returns

  1. No fabric will be accepted for return, for any reason, once it has been cut. No fabric will be accepted for return without prior authorization from our Sales Office. We reserve the right to impose a 50% handling charge on any returns.
  2. With any returns it is essential that a debit note or letter be enclosed with the parcel, giving all details, including invoice or order number.
  3. All parcels must be properly packed and the name and address of the consignee clearly marked.

Limitation of Liability

All goods are supplied by us on the condition that our liability for any fault or defect in the condition, description, fitness or quality for any purpose is limited in amount to a sum not exceeding the wholesale value purchase price of the particular goods.

Continuity

We reserve the right to withdraw fabrics and alter our prices, trading terms or conditions without prior notice.

Retention of Title

Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk, property in and title to the goods shall remain with the seller until the seller has received payment of the full price of all goods subject of the contract and all other goods supplied by the seller to the buyer under any contract whatsoever.

Payment of the full price shall include, without limitation, the amount of any interest or other sum payable under the terms and conditions of this and all other contracts between the seller and the buyer.

Add-on Treatment
