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 colourfastness. Where practicable, lining is recommended as a protection.
 
USE FOR UPHOLSTERY
No warranty is given as to the suitability of our fabrics for upholstery unless promotional literature expressly states that a fabric or collection of fabrics is suitable.
 
CLEANING
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.
 
13. FLAME-PROOFING
 
i) All our fabrics are sold without FR treatment.
 
ii) Jason D’Souza and our suppliers have not tested all of our items for FR and therefore products may need treatment to meet required fire standards. As many projects now require more stringent information, certification of tests or letters of treatment may be required to ensure compliance with current regulations. Clarification on type of certification is required from the Specifier, Project Manager or the person signing off the project at the point of order to prevent delays and additional cost to the project. i) Jason D’Souza will not be held responsible for issues with treatment of products or certification errors. We recommend speaking directly to the treatment house of your choice to discuss which treatment is best for the product being used.

vii) Jason D’Souza and its suppliers do not have certification for all of its products for FR certification from independent treatment houses unless accumulated from previous orders. It is the responsibility of the designer/purchaser to assess the needs of the project and request testing information when required (at additional costs).
 
iii) 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 all ow approximately 5% for shrinkage during processing. We advise that sample be sent to the flame proofing company prior to treatment for testing.
