Swatch & Sample Service
Litmans understand that sometimes a picture on a screen is not enough to enable you to make a buying decision, which is why we operate a swatch service. We will send up to 6 swatches to you without charge. Requests for larger volumes of swatches will incur a charge so please bear this in mind when you request swatches. If you order more than 6 we will make contact with you to discuss your order further.
When you make your choice, we will send you a 3” x 3” feeler and the colour of the fabric will be random - we cannot usually send specific feeler colours. If you need to see an exact colour, we suggest ordering a swatch or some sampling.
Full colour swatches are also available and you can request one of these if you need to see several colours of the same design. These swatches are usually on an A4 card or a hanger, as shown below:
If you wish to see the pattern repeat and the edges of the fabric, we encourage you to order a sample length, which will be chargeable. In fact, wherever possible, we would suggest ordering sampling so that you can perform tests on the fabric to ensure that it will compatible with your needs. We do not offer test reports, but can supply a manufacturer's guideline for the fabric that gives you suggested wash care instructions and all of the information relevant to the fabric.
Requests for swatches are processed as soon as possible but please be aware that during our busier times (after trade shows etc), you may be waiting up to a week to receive swatches. Also, during these busy times we do sometimes run out of swatches on some of our most popular patterns. This rarely happens, but when it does please note that your swatch will be placed on back order and sent to you as soon as a fresh batch comes in. Please note that your swatches are delivered with paperwork that contains all the information about the designs, including the price. Please retain this for your information, thank you.
