Pricing and Cut of Fabric:

All fabrics are priced per meter length and there is a choice on the drop down menu to include 0.5 meters within your order.
The fabric is cut directly from the bolt roll, therefore you will receive a whole continuous piece. All fabrics will be supplied in continuous lengths for each printed design.
We have taken images which represent the colour as closely as possible, however the appearance of colours will always vary slightly from one computer screen to another and to the actual fabric. Please note that we have tried to make these images as close as possible to the actual fabrics, however there will be a slight variation from the picture to the actual fabric.
