Here at Fabric World we are pleased to offer a sample service on certain fabrics. We often get asked a variety of different questions regarding samples. 

Listed below is a list of the most common questions we get asked:

1) How much do you charge for samples?

All samples are charged at £1.00 per sample. 

2) Do you offer discounts on samples?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer any discounts on samples, regardless of how many are purchased. 

3) Do you send samples internationally?

Yes we do. We charge £3.95 for P&P for samples going overseas. 

4) Do you charge P&P on samples within the UK?

There is no P&P on samples sent within the UK.

5) How many samples can I order?

You can order as many samples as you require.

6) How do I order samples?

Please order sample via our website. Every product that is available as a sample is available to order as a sample on our website by following the link on the product page.

7) How big are your samples?

Fabric samples are all cut by hand and measure approximately 4cm x 12cm. Samples of other products will vary.

8) Can I have a zip sample?

We don't offer any samples of zips. All zips are for sale on our website and can be returned if unsuitable (see returns section for more information)

9) Can I have a metre of fabric as a sample?

No, this is not a sample quantity, so this would need to be purchased online.

10) Does the cost of samples get refunded if I place an order?


11) How long will my samples take to arrive?

Typically, you will receive your samples within 3 working days. If they are urgent we do offer a next working day delivery. This is priced at £7.95 and is a UK based service only. 

12) How are my samples sent?

All samples are sent with Royal Mail.

13) How will I know what each fabric is?

Each and every sample is attached to a sample card and on this card it will have the price, width, name and composition of the fabric.

14) I'm a business can I have free samples?

No, all samples are charged at £1.00. We regret that we are unable to offer complimentary samples under any circumstances.

15) Do you provide colours charts of all your fabrics?

No, if you are unsure of the suitability of a fabric please order a sample online.

16) How long is the price valid on my sample card?

The price quoted on all sample cards is valid for one month only and is subject to change without prior notification.

17) Can I order samples over the phone?

No, please place sample orders online.

18) I need a number of samples and only one zip, can I have free P&P?

No, as this then becomes an order for more than samples.

19) Why do you charge for samples?

We hire 2 members full time to look after our samples and we also don't charge P&P on UK samples. This is why we need to charge for samples.

20) I have received my samples and want to reorder them again so I can send them to my friend/family so they can see them. How do i do this?
