Our Process

When we receive an order we will send a confirmation email and this constitutes a legal contract with you. When the goods are dispatched we will email you again to inform you.

Availability 

While we make every effort to keep all fabrics in stock, occasionally a fabric may not be in stock (either due to demand or circumstances beyond our control). We will always email to you an ETA, but be assured this is a rare occurrence.

Products, Colours, Sizing and Swatches

Our products and colours are as true to the pictures (and descriptions) as is possible but please bare in mind, colours can appear slightly different from computer screen to screen. Pictures are only a guideline to colour. Swatches are available so if in doubt please order a free swatch.  Like wool and other fabrics, faux fur colour can sometimes vary from roll to roll and batch to batch, so we cannot absolutely guarantee that the faux fur or fabric will be identical to the swatch you have. (Although it usually is)  It is advisable (like wool) if you are making several items or plan to buy several products of any particular faux fur that you buy the fabric and products at the same time as subsequent orders may differ slightly.

Please note: sizes are approximate. We hand make all our products in our UK Studio - so there can be a slight variation. Just a brief word about the 'Double' Throw sizes – the fabric is 1.5 m wide – so for any width over that – we use 1 piece of 1.50m in the centre and then join a piece either side and painstakingly pull through all the fibres so the joins are almost invisible.

Please note: Care of Faux Fur. Our throws and faux fur are designed for decorative and ‘light use’ purposes, rather than for heavy wear and tear. Faux and real fur is delicate and should be treated with care.

Our throws are designed as an accessory for, perhaps, dressing the top of a bed, or dressing a sofa, and certainly fabulous for snuggling under, but it is not advisable, for example, to sit on, on a regular basis, as it will eventually crush the fibres and the fur will become rough, this damage is not covered by our guarantee. 

Damage and Packaging

All our products are inspected at all levels of manufacture and checked by stringent quality control to be sure they are in perfect condition before dispatch. Our packaging is sturdy and the products are bubble-wrapped to protect them, but unfortunately they are occasionally (rarely) damaged in transit. If the product in your package is showing obvious signs of damage, please refuse to accept it and notify us immediately. If the damage is only clear once the package has been opened, please inform us within 24 hours of receipt. –info@fauxthrow.com Then we can arrange collection and delivery of a replacement.
