Swatch Service:

Our ever-changing fabric selection makes it impossible for us to offer a catalogue. However, we are happy to send swatches based upon a specific request. Please try to be as specific as possible as to color, fiber content and type of print desired when requesting swatches. If at all possible, include a color sample for coordination and matching and a description of the type of garment being constructed. Detailed information helps us to prepare swatches that will better fit your needs. As we are a small retail store, our swatching capabilities are somewhat limited. Please do not hesitate to request additional samples if our first offering does not meet your needs.
