Refunds Policy

All sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges for incorrect purchases or change of mind once fabric has been cut, or once digital products have been delivered. Please follow the care instructions as outlined in product description as we are unable to accept claims on fabrics which have been laundered incorrectly. The colour of fabrics as depicted online cannot be guaranteed by The Fabric Store due to variances beyond our control such as computer monitor settings. In the unlikely event that we have sent you the wrong fabric or you find that your fabric is faulty, we will replace the fabric at no charge or if we are unable to do this due to the product being unavailable we will refund both the fabric cost and the shipping fee (if applicable).

All claims on faulty items must be made within 21 days of purchase & proof of purchase must be provided.  To make a claim please email us at contact@thefabricstoreonline.com

The colour of fabrics as depicted online cannot be guaranteed by The Fabric Store due to elements beyond our control such as variances in computer monitor settings. We will do our best to accurately describe our products, however if you are unsure of the colour, weight, style, grain or pattern of any of our fabrics we strongly recommend to order a sample before purchasing. Fabric price for our online store is set separately from our physical stores, and may therefore differ from the in-store price. This is due to a number of factors including changing currency rates as well as handling & administrative costs. We do not offer refunds or reimbursement if you find the same fabric at a lower price in-store.

We will endeavour to supply all orders placed and accepted on the website, however, order placement and acceptance do not constitute an obligation on us to supply until you receive confirmation of your order from us.
