Terms and Conditions

We hope that you love your linen homeware as much as we have loved making it for you but putting that aside here are some of the more practical bits and bobs that we need to mention…


Whilst our linen and organic cotton velvet homeware is of the highest quality they are handmade and unique in their nature. Those items which have illustrations are screen printed by hand using solvent free textile inks and there can be some variability in the colour and image detail only adding to the individuality of each item. In addition if exposed to direct sunlight both the image and linen/velvet colour will fade over time.
Our hob covers contain a layer of heat resistant wadding along with 2 layers of recycled cotton & polyester batting. They are strong and durable but NOT FIRE PROOF, so as with all fabrics please be vigilant when leaving on hot surfaces!
Although our linen is pre-washed it will shrink a tiny bit after the first wash but should remain in wonderful condition and a perfect fit for your hob or cushion insert.

Swatches & Colour

If you wish to order any fabric swatches from us, please send us an email first to [email protected] and we will then instruct you to purchase a Fabric Samples product from our shop page, linked below:
