Yardage: In order to keep our waste to a minimum, most fabrics are printed to order. Yardage orders typically ship within 2-3 weeks, unless the pattern is in stock. If you need your fabric in a hurry, please email Sara at email@example.com
Samples: In-stock samples will ship immediately. To request samples, please complete this form. Samples are complimentary and ship free.
Art Work: Stretched and framed art work may require additional shipping charges. Art work will ship within 3-5 business days.
Care: Our fabrics can be washed at home on a gentle or delicate cycle in cold water with mild detergent. Hang to dry for best results and iron on the back of print for wrinkles.
Our fabrics are hand-printed using environmentally-friendly inks. Although the inks are heat-set for longevity, they are not guaranteed against wear or color fading.
Variations in yardage may occur due to the nature of hand-printing.
