The contract between you the customer, and us Tetford Fabrics, will not deem to be in force until such time as we confirm, in writing or by email, that we have accepted your order. The contract shall be in accordance with all the laws and statutes in force in the United Kingdom, and specifically the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000 No 2334).
Our usual office hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4.30pm. We do our best to respond to your enquiry within 24 hours (Tuesday to Saturday). Telephone: 01472 859412 Email: email@example.com
Orders are subject to availability. Many of our fabrics are discontinued designs and our stock may be the last available of a particular design. On each fabric description page the listed ‘quantity available’ is a general guide, and there may be a reservation on all or some of that quantity for an earlier interested party awaiting receipt of their fabric sample. Should you request a sample of the same fabric then we would let you know that your later reservation would be on a ‘2nd refusal’ basis.
We always advise a sample is requested prior to placing a definite order. Screen colour settings vary considerably
and your screen may not be displaying an accurate representation of the fabric’s true colour.
Up to 3 samples are provided free of charge. Should you require more than 3 samples please telephone or email to discuss your requirements with Sarah – this will help to ensure you receive the most appropriate samples for your intended project.
Click ‘request sample’ on the fabric description page and enter the quantity (in metres) you think you are likely to need for your project - this quantity will then be reserved for 5 days from the day your sample is posted. This will give you time to inspect the fabric in-situ, where it may appear different under varying light conditions throughout the day.
We always appreciate a quick email if you immediately decide the fabric is not suitable, but if we have not heard from you after 5 days then your reserved fabric will be returned to available stock. Just let us know if you need a longer ‘decision time’, then if there are no other interested parties we will be more than happy to extend your reservation.
When you have received your sample/s and placed your definite order, your fabric will be rolled through, checked and measured then payment will be requested. Payments are accepted by BACS (a bank transfer direct to our bank), or by credit/debit card via SMS or emailed secure payment link (please request this payment method when placing your order).
Should you prefer to order without seeing a sample please note our returns policy below.

You can place your order by clicking ‘order fabric’ from the fabric description page, or by telephone or email. At this point no payment will be requested.

Although we may suggest uses for fabrics it is the Buyer's responsibility to ascertain suitability of the fabric for its intended use. For use in public areas or for upholstery and loose covers, the Buyer must ensure fabrics are suitably treated to comply with current Fire Safety Regulations.
We will not accept any liability for any loss or damage or deterioration in condition to any goods sold caused by usage, shrinkage, cleaning processes, atmospheric conditions or general application.
All goods are supplied on the condition that our liability for any fault or defect in the quality, condition, description or suitability for any purpose is limited in amount to a sum not exceeding the purchase price of the particular goods.
Orders can be cancelled within 14 days of receipt of the goods, and must be notified in writing or by email BEFORE returning the goods. The Customer will be required to return the goods at their own expense. We advise using a traceable and insured service to minimise the possibility of loss or damage.
All goods which have been cut or processed in any way by the customer are deemed to have been accepted by
the customer and therefore cannot be returned or exchanged.
Returned goods must be well packaged and be in the same condition as when they were received by the customer - we may not be able to offer a refund if reasonable care has not been taken with the goods (particularly if fabric has been removed from the tube and creased). Refunds on returns will exclude the cost of the return carriage, unless the goods were incorrectly supplied or faulty, and will be paid via the same method used by the Customer to purchase the goods.
Please check your order carefully on receipt. Any complaint in respect of faults must be made in writing or by email within 28 days of receipt of the goods. No claim will be accepted AFTER the fabric has been cut or processed in any way by the Customer, despite being faulty. Refunds on faulty goods, returned in the same condition as when they were received by the Customer, will be paid via the same method used by the Customer to purchase the goods, and will include all carriage costs.
