If an exact colour match is required, please request a cutting of our present stock for your approval or send us a cutting to match. As colour variations often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another, we do not guarantee dye lots and can issue no credit for dye lot variation unless a colour sample was submitted to be matched with the order. All colour variations within prints are inherent to the beauty of Norra Strand’s hand printed products.
While most fabric tolerances are stated, none are guaranteed against shrinkage, fading or wear. Widths and repeats may vary as may dye lots. Fabrics used as curtains, when held against the light cannot be guaranteed against flaws. Fabrics are not completely stable and stretching and shrinkage may occur as a result of changing humidity, a 2 - 3% change is reasonable.
