Because our fabrics are made from high quality yarns, many will exhibit characteristics such as crushing, piling and creasing. These do not affect the quality or performance of the fabrics but should be taken into consideration when making your selection. You should also consider the lighting in the room for which you are shopping and view the fabrics under both natural and artificial light as colour variations may occur.
Take a moment to review our useful fabric glossary below to remove any uncertainties when ordering.
Striking patterns in vivid colours, traditional or contemporary, plain or patterned you couldn’t dream of a more beautiful printed fabric collection. Some of these fabrics have a high linen content which may naturally pill and crease or have fine threads and slubs visible. These desirable, natural characteristics of linen do not affect its durability and are not a sign of premature wear.
100% Silk Fabric
Decadently luxurious, and created with an emphasis on colour and finish, our range of silk fabrics will breathe effortless elegance into your décor. Silk is a natural fabric with slubs that enhance its character. Because silk may naturally degrade when exposed to sunlight over a period of time, we recommend that all silk fabric used for draperies are either lined depending on the exposure to sunlight.
