How do I order fabric?
We sell yardage in increments of one yard (36"). If you need less than a full yard, please select the half yard and add to your order. Your order will ship as a single piece.
Our fabrics are in stock and ready to ship unless otherwise noted. You will be contacted via email if there are any unexpected stock shortages.
How big are your swatches?
Our swatches are approximately 4" x 5". If you would like to see a larger sample, we recommend you place an order for a 1/2 yard.
We do our best to represent all of the colours in a pattern but it is not always possible in a swatch. If you are interested in a larger-scale patterned fabric, we recommend you purchase a 1/2 yard to sample.
Can you help me with my fabric selection?
Absolutely! Our design experts are here to to answer any questions you may have.

Patterns may be described direction as "Railroaded" or "Up the Roll". This indicated the direction of the stripe.
A railroaded pattern will run horizontally, across the width of the fabric.

What are High Performance Fabrics?
Our High Performance Fabrics are an upholstery fabric line is a remarkably durable, stain resistant line that allows life to happen around you without the anxiety of stains resulting from a good time! Clean up is made easy with soap and water.
Many of our High Performance products are made from olefin. Olefin's advantages are its strength, colourfastness, and resistance to staining, mildew, abrasion, and sunlight.
High Performance fabrics are also remarkably durable, with above industry standard testing results for residential use.
What are Double Rubs and Pilling Class?
For upholstery projects and other uses where fabrics need to stand up to everyday life, it is important to know how a fabric will wear over time.
The textile industry in North America has set industry-wide standards for rating fabric performance. Two of the primary ways that fabric makers rank strength, durability and longevity are through a “double rubs” rating and pilling classification. Our manufacturers provide us with testing results and this information can be found in the PRODUCT DETAILS & CARE drop-down.
What are GREENGUARD Gold and Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® certifications?
GREENGUARD Certification means a product has been tested and evaluated to meet stringent chemical emissions limits to ensure good indoor air quality standards.
GREENGUARD Gold Certified Standard goes beyond the regular certification requiring lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified products have been tested for a wide range of harmful substances known to be dangerous to humans and the environment such as pesticides, carcinogenic colourants and heavy metals.
How do I care for my fabrics?
Keep your product looking its best with these tips:
Vacuum or dust frequently. As dust and dirt cause fabrics to wear more quickly, we recommend routine care such as light dusting or vacuuming at low suction (with a clean soft brush attachment).
Bring outdoor pillows and cushions inside during poor weather conditions. Keep your outdoor products in their best condition by bringing them inside if it is raining or snowing.
Spot cleaning or dry cleaning may be recommended to prevent shrinkage and to keep the colours vivid and crisp. Depending on the fiber content and product use, care instructions will vary. You can find this information in the individual product listings under PRODUCT DETAILS & CARE.
If you are using our fabric for upholstery, do not remove the seat covers on a sofa to be dry cleaned separately as the covers may look different from the rest of the piece after cleaning. Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled condition has been reached.
