Matching of Fabrics / Colour Match

Whilst every effort is made to obtain an exact match to the samples displayed in the pattern books, the Seller cannot guarantee an exact match.  Should a close match be required the Buyer must request a stock sample for approval prior to ordering. In the case of repeat orders, the Buyer must provide a cutting of the fabric to be matched, and the Sellers original invoice number, dye batch and piece number. Pattern Repeats are also an approximation, and can vary from roll to roll. This must be taken into consideration by the Buyer when ordering fabric quantity. Pattern Repeats can also vary on Jacquards and Embroidery from batch to batch, and is caused by loom tension.  The Seller cannot guarantee consistency. In the case of handmade fabrics, pattern repeats can vary from roll to roll, as all fabric is washed at source prior to delivery, and shrinkage is not consistent.  Fabric width will generally be the same for all Jacquard fabrics, however the width of handmade fabrics will vary from the washing process. The widths stated are an approximation and can vary by as much as 10% on the handmade products. No claims, unless the fabric is faulty, will be accepted for pattern repeat or width variances.
