Fabric Lengths
Fabrics are sold by 1 metre increments. At checkout all orders will be automatically calculated depending on chosen fabric lengths.
Fabric swatches can be ordered (see below).

The light weight fabric is suitable for soft furnishings, craft or quilting. The medium to heavy weight fabrics are suitable for cushions, curtains, blinds and upholstery.

Any information provided to you in store is of a general nature, and does not take into consideration the specific end use. Please ask for fabric specifications if using this fabric for upholstery or home furnishing manufacturing.


Fabric Width
Our fabrics vary from 70cm to 150cm wide. The width is noted in the individual fabric description. Some hand screen printed fabrics have a narrow width of approximately 70cm. Please refer to fabric descriptions for this information.


Colours
The fabric colours represented on the website may differ slightly from the actual product. Appearances may vary from one computer screen to another due to the colour settings on your computer. We recommend ordering a swatch before buying meterage to get a true indication of colour. As some of our fabrics are hand dyed and woven there may be slight colour variations between dye batches.


Fabric Imperfections
The nature of natural fibres such as cotton and weaving imperfection methods are such that a certain number of slight imperfections can and will occasionally occur. Such imperfections are considered a normal part of the fabric and should not be seen as flaws or defects. These normal variations cannot be returned, repaired or exchanged.


Fabric Swatches
Fabric Swatches can be ordered online. To order a fabric swatch select the fabric you like and on the product detail page select 'Order Swatch $1 per sample' from the drop down and add to cart. Swatches are free of charge when in store, so if collecting online purchases from one of our stores it is advisable to select swatches when in store.

Fabric Care Instructions
Most fabrics will fade and eventually wear out – that’s guaranteed, and for lovers of fabric, it’s part of their charm. How you treat them, however, will determine when that time will come. All No Chintz fabrics are either cotton or linen. If you have specific use outside the one for which the fabric is intended, and want to launder it in future, please do a test: pin a piece to another item in your normal wash to see how the fabric will behave.

All our fabrics will shrink between 5 -10% depending on the temperature of the water. Reds and strong pinks will bleed if washed in hot water and strong detergents, and be aware that they cannot be left to soak, or stay wet for any length of time. The use of dryers will also shrink fabrics. Fabrics used as window furnishings should have the appropriate linings for conditions – we advise full sun protection wherever possible, for longer life. Unlined fabrics will always deteriorate quickly and must be washed with care: use mild detergent. Do not use enzymes, bleach or strong detergents. Hand wash in a tub, or in a bag if using machine washing, to protect them further.
