Info & Terms



Measurements: Unless otherwise stated in the product description fabric width is 110cm/44inch and 100% cotton. Fabrics are cut from the bolt in the full order amount. Unless otherwise stated fabric orders are sold and priced by the unit measurement of 0.25m (25cm) meaning if you require 1 metre you will need to place an order for 4 units, 2 metres equals 8 units, etc. Sale or discounted fabrics may have a larger unit of measurement of 0.5m (50cm) which will be advised in the product description.

Colour: Due to variations in how individual screens display colour, the product colours shown on this website should be considered as an example only and not an exact representation. We do not refund or return products if the colour you have chosen is not as you had thought. For critical applications or exact matches please contact us directly or supply a sample

In-store availability: Fabrics in our online shop will NOT be available in-store. Our online fabrics are kept in a different location. We do offer an in-store pickup service so you are able to make your purchase and then collect your item in-store. Please make your purchase through the cart system and select the In-store Pickup in the delivery options.  Please see below for details about In-store Pickup. 

Checkout: There are five steps to our checkout system and these five steps need to be completed for your order to be finalised. Please be aware that in the fourth step for payment you will be directed to a new PayPal window for your payment information. Once this step is complete you will automatically be returned to our checkout page where you must complete step five by clicking the large black button to finalise and make your purchase. If you do not complete this last confirmation your order will not be placed. 

Fabric Categories: We try to add new ranges into the fabric category that most makes sense for that range. However, you may see fabrics in categories that you think may not be right, for example a check print in the floral category. We are currently adding full ranges into the same category so that they can all be easily seen together as a range. But what that means is that if there are co-ordinates in a range (like a check fabric in a mostly floral range) some fabrics may look out of place. 



Pricing: All prices are in AUD dollars. Prices and products may change at the discretion of VanCootens Howard Drapery.
