Orders, Swatches and Shipping

Ordering and payments

Our minimum order for a length of fabric is 0.5m.  After that, you can select the length that you need – for example 1.8m or 2.3m and we will cut that specific length for you. You can order in 10cm amounts.

We accept payment by debit or credit card, using a secure, third-party provider. Bloomsbury Square does not record or hold any payment details.

Upon receipt of the order, you will receive a confirmatory e-mail.

Our despatch times are Monday to Friday.  If your order is placed in the evenings or at weekends, the countdown starts at the open of the next working day! We aim to prepare your order quickly, although during busy times this may be within 3-5 working days of receiving it. A further email will come to confirm that we have completed your order.


We strongly recommend that you order swatches, as fabric photographs differ on different screens.  We are happy to send out swatches of fabric so that you can match for colour, find the right texture and check that the drape and weight of the fabric will be right for your project.  We supply up to 6 swatches per customer for a charge of £1.50.

The ordering system for our website may allow you to order more, please don’t do that! but in that case, we will send the first 6 fabrics which appear on the swatch order.

Product Descriptions

We have taken care to make sure that the descriptions and dimensions of all fabrics and products are accurate. If you spot an error, please let us know, so that we can update our information. In particular, we have tried to accurately represent the colours of the fabrics in our photographs. However, sometimes these can look different on some computers and mobile devices. Please order swatches of the fabric before ordering a length if colour is very important. We do not offer refunds or replacement due to colour issues.
