What is the nature of the fabric like?
All fabrics are made from natural fibres, for this reason it is the nature of the fabric to have irregularities within the cloth. We do our best to ensure that this is minimised, but please consider this when making your purchase.
How do I clean and care for my fabric?
To preserve the longevity of your fabric we recommend that you either dry-clean or wash fabrics using a delicate wash at 30 degrees. We recommend that you do not use fabric conditioners or bleach and use a low spin setting on your machine. Do not tumble dry the fabrics and its best to iron your fabric whilst it is damp.
Once the fabrics are made into blinds and curtains, we recommend that they are dry cleaned and not washed.
It is the nature of printed natural fabrics to fade eventually. To ensure that your fabrics last as long as they should, we recommend that upholstery fabrics should be kept out of direct sunlight, and that curtains are lined with a black out liner.
Please refer to each product description individually for the care instructions.
Are your fabrics flame retardant?
