My piece came with a sticker on it. How do I remove the sticker? Larger manufacturers sticker- We recommend ironing the back side of the sticker with a warm iron and peeling it of slowly while it is still warm. Re iron and peel from another direction if the sticker starts to seperate. Wash and wipe with a damp facewasher or towel to remove any remianing residue.
Small bronze sticker on the selvidge - It is easiest to just rip it off like a wax strip, as quickly as possible. do this untill all sticky residue is gone. No ironing needed.
Can I use these fabrics for upholstery? Yes our range of Ankara and Kente can be used to upholster many things like dining chairs, ottomans, lounge suites, arm chairs, bean bags and so on. It is recommended to use a backing cloth to give it extra stability and scotch guard to protect it. Should I wash my fabric? Yes. We recommend washing all fabric before use. Please see our WASH & CARE page for more details.
Will the colours run? Ankara range- Has more stable dyes and generally will not run we do still recommend washing with similar colours. Hand dyed range- Due to the nature of its processing, These fabrics will often loose colour in the washing process. We therefore recommend hand washing seperatley at first. If you are making a quilt using very different colours. You may want to wash several times until you feel all excess dye has been released.
