Dye batch – Fabric can vary in tones and shades in accordance to dye batches. We cannot guarantee a complete colour match unless fabrics are from the same batch.
Natural fabrics – Due to the delicate nature of silk it should not be exposed to direct sunlight. “Natural” fabrics are characterised by slubs and weave irregulates this is not a defect. Due to the inherent nature patterns on natural fabrics may have tendency to movement, a tolerance for this should be allowed especially on striped, tartaned and geometric patterns.
Synthetic fabric - By nature can have a lot of movement and therefore may drop once made up into curtains and/or blinds and hung. This is not a fault as it is beyond our control but the nature of these types of fabrics. Front of House will correct any product that falls into this category.
Blinds – We cannot guarantee 100% blackout on our blinds or curtains. Black out helps to darken a room but seepage is unavoidable around the edges. When using blackout lining the stab stitching sometimes leaves holes which light can seep through. This is can not be avoided as the stitching holds the lining to the fabric.
Safety – In line with safety regulations please note that all our blinds are always supplied with child safety devices which should remain fitted to avoid any risk to babies or small children.
