1. Ordering

  1. Items are sold per 50 cm and for wholesale per bolts of 10 meters. Select the product(s) of your choice and add to the shopping cart.
    If you place a pre-order then your order will be shipped once all products are in stock. If you would like to receive certain fabrics sooner (which are in stock), please make a separate order for those fabrics which are in stock and a separate one for the pre-order.
  2. Check your cart (fill in a discount code if available) and proceed to checkout.
  3. Enter your address and full contact details. Check your delivery address carefully.
  4. Log in, sign up or place the order as a guest.
  5. Carefully review your order. After your order is placed we are not able to change it (except
    pre-orders). Proceed to checkout.

There may be minor (printing) errors in the fabrics. For this we maintain a margin of error of 5% of the fabric.

We can therefore not guarantee that a newly ordered fabric will be exactly the same as the fabric from a previous order.

If you want to be sure that you have fabrics from the same batch for certain projects, we recommend ordering more in one go.
