Please take the time to read:
We have four types of fabric:
1. Deckchair Canvas
Deckchair canvas is more robust, 100% yarn dyed woven cotton, approximately 45 cms wide especially made for recovering Deckchairs & Directors Chairs.
Deckchairs: We recommend that you purchase 1.5 metres for a standard deckchair and a packet of upholstery nails to attach to the frame.
Directors Chairs: We recommend that you purchase 1.5 metres for a standard directors chair. Please ensure the stripes go horizontally across the chair. Easily sewn with a domestic sewing machine or purchase a packet of upholstery nails to attach to the frame.
Washing our Deckchair canvas is not recommended, although it may be sponge cleaned and air-dried.
2. Interior Stripe Fabrics approximately 150 cms wide and is designed for INTERIOR use, such as Upholstery, Blinds, Cushions, Tablecloths or for use in the home including many of the products we produce. It may be washed at 40 degrees, line dried and ironed. We state 'Dry Clean only' in the case of curtains and blinds or where our fabric has been used for upholstery and where specialist cleaning is required.
3. Oilcloth approximately 150 cms wide - the coating is a matte hard-wearing PVC finish which wipes clean easily and may be cut to size easily, or even sewn. Perfect for tablecloths, mats, runners and even bags!
4. Water Repellent Fabrics coated on one side with a wipeable EPA finish - perfect for use as tablecloths or many other outdoor uses although we do not recommend leaving outside.
It is water repellent so may be wiped clean easily, tough on spills and yet soft to the touch. Easily cut with scissors into any shape required or sewable.

All Stripes Run Vertically Down The Roll
Please Note That None Of Our Fabrics Are Intended To Be Left Outside or in Strong Sunlight.
Modern dyes do not include banned or harmful substances - this means that the resistance to fading is reduced so it is not advisable to leave in direct light.
Pink and Red Fading
There is a compromise between natural dyes and fabrics and synthetic chemical dyes - unfortunately natural dyes which we use are more prone to fading quickly in strong light - Pinks and reds are more vulnerable so avoid these if you wish your colours to remain brighter.
See our FAQS on Fading
Our fabrics are all 100% cotton with no protective coating so are only suitable for indoor use, or in the case of deckchairs, intended for occasional use outdoors in fine weather.
Fabric widths may vary slightly and any discrepancies in the weave are part of the nature of the raw materials and the weaving process. We do not sell seconds.
We offer a free swatch service for colour matching
We cannot ship Deckchairs and Directors Chairs to Australia from the UK which is why they are not available to buy on this website. Our UK and US websites have them for sale but we are unable to ship to Australia.
