Shipping Policy


We pack with extreme care. Professional bag (about $2/each) & tube ($3 each.) Normally 1-3yds are folded & 4yds+ on a tube.


All our fabric is already with us (unless otherwise clearly noted)—we do not order from somewhere else, thus everything is for immediate delivery.


Chances are, no (sorry!). At 65-90% off retail (often below production cost), most of our fabrics are not re-orderable or retockable. In rare cases of us running into the same item again, the price may be different (often higher because their price keeps going up year after year). That said, if you like it, buy it now.

Can you order other fabrics for me?

Yes, we have accounts with all those designer exclusive brands: Scalamandre, Brunschwig & Fils, Lee Jofa, Clarence House, GP & J Baker, Kravet, F. Schumacher and more. We can order for you with discount.


By law, California residents pay CA tax. International buyers are responsible to any import duties & taxes of their own country.

Custom order

Yes! We can custom design and produce high quality fabric for you, mostly silk. Within 20yards minimum order, $250 flat design fee including 1yard sample made for your approval. Most orders are priced $95-150/yard (only) when custom design on the market mostly goes for $300++ per yard with 100yds minimum. Please contact for details.

All our photos are taken under natural light (bright indoors) which provides highest accuracy. Ordering sample is also a great solution. Cream/off white/beige/white/ivory can be tricky, so we put pure white paper (printing paper) in photo to show contrast.


Durability is listed in each item. Please read item by item. 

Some fabrics the supplier does not offer the double rub data and some they do. When they do, we list the number. 


Almost all designer interior fabrics are dry clean only.

As far as we know, vacuum clean the drapery,  slip cover or upholstery regularly will do the job; then you can dry clean it once every few years. It is much safer than water wash. 

Small area of stain can be cleaned with spot cleaning of baby wipes or rubbing alcohol. Use circular movement.

In reality you might get away with water-wash some of them (like canvas or plain weave linen) but there is no guarantees. *You need to personally make that decision.*

Water wash may shrink the fiber and make it uneven. Thus water wash, if you are willing to take the risk, must be done before cutting and sewing.

Also a slipcover or drapery made from 7-8yds fabric may be too big for most home washers.
