Frequently Asked Questions
Do all of your styles come in each of your fabric and colour options?

What are the fabric options?
Viscose: A beautiful soft and draped fabric, that breathes well, and feels light to the touch

Viscose Satin Crepe: A draped fabric, with a slight weave; it features a satin face and a crepe back, we primarily use the ‘glossy’ satin side.
How do I go about ordering a custom colour?
First step, provide us with your perfect colour/s - we will then have our skilled dyers aim to match that shade. This adds an additional 8 weeks to the creation process, as we will need to have the swatch approved before going ahead with your designs.
