    Please be aware that:

  • Color is technically defined as a perception. This means that your perception of a fabric color will be influenced by other colors in the room and from lighting, both natural and artificial. You will notice that colors will appear differently during different times of the day and from day versus evening. A textured fabric will reflect light differently than a plain fabric.
  • Purchasing a fully refundable fabric sample or rug sample is easy and allows you to view and touch fabrics prior to purchasing merchandise.
  • Return costs on samples are the responsibility of the buyer.
  • Samples are available to view for 15 days or 30 days, depending on the item and are fully refundable when returned.
