We have done our best to represent our fabrics as accurately as possible on the website, however, colours will vary between computer screens. We strongly recommend, therefore, that you request a free sample(s) prior to ordering unless slight differences in appearance are not critical to your order.
Samples are a close representation of the fabric you choose but may not be an exact match as there are often slight variations in colour between manufacturing batches, and greater batch variation tolerance must be allowed for natural fibre products than for synthetic fibres.
In cases where this is critical, we can arrange for a sample of the current manufacturing batch to be sent to you for your inspection and reserved for you should you wish to proceed with your order for that particular fabric.

What is a Martindale Rub Test?
- Martindale Abrasion and pilling tester
The Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is employed, throughout the world, for testing the abrasion resistance and pilling properties of textiles.
- As a Guide see below
- 6,000 Occasional domestic use, display pieces
15,000 Light domestic
20,000 General Domestic
25,000 Heavy Domestic
30,000 Severe Domestic
40,000 General Contract
50,000 Severe Contract
A Martindale test is for abrasion only. There are many other factors that can affect the wear and tear of upholstery on a piece of furniture, including UV exposure, embedded dirt. A high rub count does not mean the fabric will be impervious to cat claws.
In the UK, all upholstered furniture must meet UK domestic or contract fire regulations. Fabric to be used on furniture must either pass a fire retardancy test or if exempt, must be used with a fire retardant interliner.
There are no current fire regulations in the UK for curtains, cushions and throws in general domestic situations.
