We will take every care in inspecting fabric before it is sent, however due to the nature of digital prints, small flaws may occur. Print errors within 5cm of the selvage, or smaller than a 2.5cm square on the body of the fabric that does not impact the total usability of the fabric will not be treated as faulty and as such will be sent as a normal piece and will not be refunded or discounted.
We advertise the weight of our fabrics, but please allow a up to a 10% variation due to the printing process. Obviously a design that is basic white with a small random flower will not have as much ink used as a very dark design with lots of different patterns. This may also cause a slight difference to the feel of the fabric from one design to another.
Printing on different bases produces slightly different colours. High cotton content will produce a slightly softer colour due to the cotton absorbing the ink, where as higher Polyester content will normally produce a slightly higher colour as polyester does not absorb like cotton.
Slight colour variations may occur from one order to another, usually so slight it is not noticeable. We always recommend washing the fabric before sewing it to allow for any shrinkage, which could be between 3 - 10%. 100% Cotton fabrics (woven, double gauze) need to have the cut edges over locked before washing to stop fraying. Always wash like colours with like, and we suggest using colour catchers. It is recommended to use cold water, however, you can wash in warm water and warm tumble dry or line dry.
Do not use detergents that contain bleach or whiteners.
Unfortunately due to the nature of cotton knit fabrics, curling on cut edges is a fact of life and totally normal and some shrinkage is normal. If a person can come up with an idea to stop this curling they will be very rich.. until then we just have to live with it and accept it.
We use digital graphics where-ever possible on the website to give as accurate colours as possible on the designs, however this may vary from screen to screen.
All orders must be made through the website, we do not take any orders via email, messenger or phone.. Payments may be made via Paypal, Credit Card and Afterpay. This is an online business only, as such we do not have a shop front or pickup option.
