DELIVERY, RETURNS, TERMS AND CONDITIONS
FREE SHIPPING. More information below.
Fabrics and wallpapers are printed to order in the UK and not held in stock, enabling me to offer a wide range of colour-ways and bespoke colouring service whilst being environmentally friendly. Printing and delivery will usually take up to two weeks. If you need to receive your order sooner, please contact me before placing it so that I can put through an express order request. This will entail an additional charge.
Your order will be sent using Royal Mail, DHL Express, Parcelforce, Fedex, TNT or DPD. Orders shipped outside the United Kingdom may be delivered by a local company for the last part of their journey.
Orders shipped outside of the United Kingdom may also be subject to customs charges and fees, dependent on the contents and value, which you will be required to pay prior to your order being released. The customs authorities in the country of destination determine whether charges are due on imported goods and the thresholds applicable vary in each country.

Fabric Tolerance Guide
Textiles are inherently flexible, however, and there is usually room in the weave for movement, that might affect the dimensional accuracy of the final product.
In addition to there being inherent flexibility in the weave, natural fibre fabrics such as Cotton, Linen and Bamboo will readily absorb moisture, or will evaporate moisture from within them. This can lead to shrinking or swelling of the fibres that can lead to changes in the dimensions of the final print.
Handling of natural fibre fabrics can also affect the dimensionality, as fibres move around, change shape and in some cases break down, which can cause shrinkage or elongation of the prints.
As a guideline, it is wise to include a tolerance for a change of dimensions of +/- 3% on the length, and +/- 2% on the width, although this will vary from fabric to fabric, and with environmental conditions.
Incorrect, faulty or damaged goods
Should any item be incorrectly supplied, faulty or damaged, please contact us within 30 days of receipt. We will be happy to arrange a replacement or refund. Note that you may be required to return the goods, the cost of which will be refunded to you.
Since custom-printed fabric is produced specifically for you, we will be unable to restock and resell the item. For this reason, we will be unable to accept returns of unwanted custom-printed fabric. All other items are stock items and can be returned within 30 days of receipt. Note that items must be unused and in a saleable condition. Please contact us before returning stock items so that we can issue an authorisation number. Returns received without an authorisation number will not be processed, and the cost of returning unwanted items will be at your own expense.
Refunds will be made using the payment method used to place the original order. We aim to process all refunds within two (2) working days, but you should allow up to five (5) working days for the funds to clear.
