Bastideaux's textiles are made entirely by hand using India’s traditional hand block printing process. Due to the hand-crafted nature of the products, exact repeat or pattern alignment cannot be guaranteed and slight imperfections will exist. Smudges and spots are often present, and because only natural dyes are used, slight bleeding of color may occur as well as fading. Dye lots can have major variations and will not match from order to order; therefore, customers must order initially a sufficient quantity of fabric to complete a job.
Wash with a minimal amount of natural soap or mild detergent. Machine or hand wash separately with cold water; use gentle cycle; air dry; steam iron. Do not use a detergent that contains enzymes, bleach, fabric softeners, or that is formulated for wool. Do not dry clean, soak, or bleach. We do not accept returns of fabric improperly maintained.
Because dye lots vary we do not guarantee that colors will match fabric swatches. We suggest ordering cutting for approval swatches with your order to avoid any confusion.
Stock orders are shipped immediately upon receipt of payment. Special and custom orders can only be produced during favorable Indian weather conditions, so delivery dates cannot be guaranteed. We will do our best to provide estimates of production and shipment time.
CUSTOM ORDERS: For custom orders. Contact us at email@example.com
Stock orders will be processed and shipped immediately and cannot be changed once released for shipment. Custom orders, once confirmed, are sent for production and may not be changed.
Fabric is sold by the yard through our to-the-trade program. There is a 5-yard minimum on custom orders. Due to the hand block printing process, the maximum length that can be printed is 10 yards. We generally print in 5 yard pieces. For orders of over 10 yards, the customer will specify preferred lengths of individual pieces. Absent length specifications, we will decide the lengths to optimize production
