We do not buy many of our fabrics direct from manufacturers, when this is the case then we do not have any care washing instructions. All the information that we provide online, or from our staff directly, is based on our own knowledge. We will endeavour to provide honest guidance, but this advice is to be seen as a guideline and not as a guarantee. It is always prudent to cut a small test piece to see how a fabric reacts to be cleaned before cleaning the whole piece. We are not liable for any damage caused to fabric once it is the possession of the customer.
