Please tell us your planned 'cuts' when ordering drapery fabrics

Updated 8 months ago by Nancy Vamvakas

When you order fabrics it is important to tell us your cuts including any allowances. This is because it is not uncommon for a fabric roll to have one or more flaws in it. This can be the case regardless of the brand or price of the fabric.

When the fabric houses are provided with information regarding your cuts, it enables them to ensure that no flaws fall within any of the cut lengths you have specified.

Specifying ‘cuts’ is normal practice in the textile industry when ordering fabric and it often works out to the customer’s advantage, as allowances made by the fabric house to ensure you receive flawless cuts can be very handy, providing you with a little bit more of the fabric then you ordered. .. And it’s that little bit more that can sometimes be sufficient to make cushion covers or tie-backs with your remnants at the conclusion of your project, by way of example.

If you are not sure of your ‘cuts’ then please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to help you calculate the appropriate cuts.

If your ‘cuts’ information is not provided we will attempt to contact you for this information and will hold your order until we have done so. We want everything to go as smoothly as possible for you and ensure that the fabric you receive is ‘flawless.
