FLAME RETARDANT PROPERTIES AND SPECIAL FINISHES
In accordance with the provisions of the Flammable Fabrics Act, as amended, this merchandise is not intended for use in the manufacture of wearing apparel. Flame retardant chemicals can cause skin irritation, fabric spotting, and/or stitching problems. In addition, all of the flame retardancy may be removed through machine washing and/or dry cleaning of the fabric. Accordingly, the Company shall have no liability for any losses, claims or damage resulting from flame retardant chemicals. Adding topical treatments to any fabric may alter the performance, quality, color, or hand. Though the Company will have special finish processes added upon customer request, the Company shall have no responsibility for any damage to fabric treated beyond regular finishes as stocked which are applied at the mill level. Kindly indicate, on all orders for stain repelling, flame-proofing, or other processes, if allowance has been made for shrinkage. These orders will be invoiced at the yardage requested, if orders are not marked otherwise it will be assumed that allowance has been made. Industry standards state that Two (2) % should be allowed for shrinkage. If a laboratory certification is required, increase your order by one (1) yard to allow for testing. Unless requested, the Company’s products are not known to contain added flame retardants. California residents can find any required Proposition 65 warnings on the product’s page at the relevant Company brand website. A Continuing Guarantee under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act is filed with the Federal Trade Commission.
DELIVERY SCHEDULES; SHIPPING, AND CHARGES; TITLE TRANSFER
In-stock cut yardage orders are generally shipped within twenty-four (24) hours from receipt of a credit approved order. Furniture, custom, special-order and non-stock orders have longer lead times. Delivery dates supplied by the Company represent its best estimate, but are in no way guarantees of delivery. Accordingly, the Company shall have no liability for delays in delivery or failure to meet estimated delivery dates. All shipments are made F.O.B. point of origin. All orders are subject to shipping and/or handling charges. Title to goods passes upon payment in full; risk of loss passes upon delivery to buyer’s common carrier. Investigations for products lost or otherwise missing after carrier proof of delivery has been recorded, are not the responsibility of The Company. It is the customer’s responsibility to insure a safe, secure delivery point for goods. Please specify at time of order if a particular carrier is preferred. If no instructions are provided, shipments will be routed by the carrier the Company deems most expedient.
CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
Any cancellation of an order must be made in writing within three (3) business days of the order date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no cancellations will be accepted if production of the order has commenced, including without limitation, cutting of fabric. If production has not commenced and the cancellation is accepted, the buyer’s deposit will be refunded. No cancellations are possible for certain fabric brands including Ardwyn Mills, & Today’s Interiors.
DYE LOT AND OTHER VARIATIONS; INHERENT IMPERFECTIONS
Color will vary from piece to piece and the Company does not guarantee the dye lot. For close match, request a CFA (Cut For Approval) and reserve the associated stock pending approval. In the absence of such request and reserve, the Company shall have no liability for variations in color, dye lot, or shade. Since color variation often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another, we do not guarantee dye lots, and can issue no credit for dye lot variation unless a sample to be matched is submitted with the order. If a close color match is required, please request a CFA and reservation of present stock for approval before shipping. Some collections contain products that are hand-painted or manufactured by hand; slight variances in color, texture and/or weave may occur. There may also be inherent imperfections or color variance in certain fibers (such as silk and linen), metals, leathers, or fabrics. None of the foregoing shall be considered defects. Due to the possibility of differences in dye lots, we recommend that all fabrics be in your possession before any work is started. Paints and special dye jobs should be made up to match actual fabrics, not sample equipment. No claims will be recognized for fabric color or quality after it has been in any way processed by the purchaser. Most fabrics are rolled face in; however, it is possible that a roll may be delivered face out. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to insure that the party conducting the fabrication understands the pattern, color, and orientation of the fabric (railroaded/non-railroaded and face). Refused shipments, customer duplication of orders, or cancellations after shipment has been made are subject to a twenty-five (25) % re-stocking charge and all freight charges. No fabric can be returned for credit if it has been processed by the purchaser in any way. Published pattern size and repeat may vary by as much as five (5) % due to process variation. If pattern size is critical to the project a request can be made through Customer Service to have a specific lot checked for pattern size by the Company’s Quality team prior to shipping.
If by chance incorrect merchandise is shipped, the Company will not accept any claims or responsibility if the merchandise has been cut and/or fabricated. Additionally, when fabric is being shipped to a third party for fabrication, it is incumbent upon the customer to provide color and pattern information to the third party as a final check on the correctness of color and pattern. The Company will not be liable for fabrication or installation costs associated with the processing of incorrect goods. Fabric cannot be returned for credit after it has been cut. Yardage must be inspected for flaws, correctness of color, pattern, quantity, and quality before cutting as no allowance will be made for cut fabric. Your request for return authorization must include the invoice number, date of invoice, pattern name or number, color, yardage, and reason. All returns must be requested within 30 days of invoice date.
An adjustment will almost always take place, up or down, in any drapery length after it has been hung for the first time. Even preshrunk materials are allowed 3% shrinkage. On a three (3) yard length, this is more than three (3) inches. A minimum of four (4) inch hems should therefore be used to permit later adjustments. It may be preferable that fabrics be installed and hemmed later after the fabric has adjusted itself to the room. Generally, humidity will cause fabrics to shrink, and dryness will cause fabrics to stretch. Dimensional change is not considered a fabric performance issue. Note: Although in printing and weaving every effort is made to avoid distortion, occasionally it will exist. Therefore, when planning multiple-width draperies please make certain, BEFORE CUTTING, that pattern alignment is adequate to produce a satisfactory result.
CLIMATIC CONDITIONS; SUITABLE APPLICATIONS; ROLL DIRECTION

Fabric displayed in sample books and memo samples describes the intended application thereof.

The selection of hardware, furniture or fabrics for specific placements or applications is made at the discretion and sole risk of the buyer and the Company shall have no liability for such selections. Accordingly, buyers are urged to review the suitability of such choices and any other questions with the Company’s Customer Service Department before ordering and to allow sufficient fabric for environmental effects.

Returns requested for orders that were signed for and later found to have shipping damages are subject to be denied. Returns authorized as a customer convenience will be subject to the twenty-five (25) % restocking charge and all freight.

Follow up may include but, is not limited to: a request for more pictures or clarification of the explanation, material testing, a request for cushion covers to be sent to the lab for review, site visits, or third party assistance (mills, finishers, local service providers).
