16th July 2020
We’ve been thinking lately we should have all our FAQs in one easy to discover place for you to access should you wish. We’ll keep this updated when we can think of anything new for you! Got a question? Let us know, we’re all ears!
Your William Morris fabric – where is it printed?
Our fabric is all printed and products manufactured in the United Kingdom. We find this gives us great control of our quality checks and keeps the environment in mind with no huge air miles on produced products.
How is your William Morris fabric sold?
Our fabric is sold from the half metre. So whatever your project, large or small, you can simply purchase fabric to the closest half metre. This means you’ll have less wastage – though we’ve seen some inventive ways people have used scrap fabric including making scrunchies and quilts out of scraps which is a great way to use every last bit of fabric!
How do you wash your fabric?
Please always follow the washing instructions on your item. Our tea towels for example, are machine washable at 40°C to keep it looking lovely use after use.
The William Morris designs – are they licensed? Do they match the original?
Yes, all our Morris designs are licensed. We print the fabric both size and colour wise to match our specifications for our products. However, we of course do keep the original in mind and make sure that they are as traditional as possible to his original designs and intentions. Remember the time period he did the designs in and remember the materials he had – we have modern technology in digital printing coupled with screen printing which gives us slightly more crisp colours than Morris was working with all those years ago!
Before I buy, can we have a sample swatch of fabric?
If you’re living within the UK, we’re happy to send you a free sample swatch of fabric before you buy. Please just get in touch and let us know your name, address, fabric design and also fabric weight so we can get that sorted out for you.
What’s the difference between the weights of cotton cloth? Which would be best for curtains?
