We will do everything we can to manufacture your blind to your made to measure sizes but if your blind is with in this tolerance it cannot be rejected.
Most fabrics are dyed and therefore each batch can vary slightly in shade. Due to colour variations between product batches we cannot guarantee shade matching for previous orders, in addition the sample despatched to you may also be slightly different in shade to the eventual order received.
