Carriage and handling charges are levied on all orders. VAT is charged on all goods at the rate current at the date of invoice.

4. Delivery

Any delivery date quoted is contingent on receipt of all necessary information for work to proceed, including design specification and supply to Us of manufactured materials, and time is not of the essence with any order unless expressly acknowledged by Us in writing. We exclude liability for late delivery.

5. Goods lost in transit

Any claims for goods not delivered must be made to Us by telephone within 7 days of the date stated on the invoice and confirmed to Us in writing within 10 days of that date, otherwise no liability will be accepted.

6. Damaged or defective goods

Please inspect the goods carefully upon delivery. In the event that they are damaged or defective, please notify Us within 48 hours of delivery, and do not cut the goods. We will not be responsible for any damage or defects not notified to Us within this time or after the goods have been cut, no matter what the nature of the damage or defect. If goods are damaged in transit, please sign for them as such and notify Us immediately.

7. Creasing

Some fabrics, including velvets, are susceptible to creasing and must be stored very carefully. If fabrics are delivered creased, this should be notified to Us in the same way and timeframe as damage. We are not responsible for creasing which occurs after delivery.

Regrettably under no circumstances what so ever, can we accept responsibility for fabric no matter what the issue is, once it has been cut. We suggest that if the fabric is being made up by You or a third party, You/they should check the reference, colour and design of the fabric received before it is cut.

COLOUR-MATCHING
While every effort is made to achieve colour-matching, We cannot guarantee exact matching between batches. We make no warranties in this regard, and We exclude liability for colour-matching.

COLOUR-FASTNESS
Our fabrics are produced to exacting light fastness standards, but no fabric is completely fadeless. We make no warranties in this regard, and We exclude liability in respect of colour-fastness. Where practicable, lining is recommended as a protection.

FLAME-PROOFING
No liability will be accepted for any change in appearance, performance or defects in our fabrics if they are treated with a flame retardant or stain repellent, and we make no warranties in this regard. Please allow approximately 5% for shrinkage during processing. We advise that a batch cutting be sent to the flame proofing company prior to treatment for testing.

USE FOR UPHOLSTERY
No warranty is given as to the suitability of our fabrics for upholstery unless promotional literature expressly states that a particular fabric or collection of fabrics is suitable.

We recommend professional dry cleaning for all our fabrics but shall not be liable for any defective cleaning (whether professional or otherwise) or for damage to the goods from any improper cleaning methods. You should ensure that the type of dry cleaning is suitable to the fabric and dyes.
