FABRICS

Are Custom colors available?

Most patterns are available in a custom color. Note that minimum quantities may be required to order custom color weaving. Please contact your Sales Rep for more information.

Fabrics vary in their cleaning instructions. Cleaning codes or special notes will be listed in fabric specifications included with orders and found on Product detail pages in the Fabrics section. Definitions of Cleaning Codes can be found on the Fabric Cleaning page.

Are your fabrics stain resistant?

Some fabrics are inherently stain-resistant, while others need to be treated. The specifications will note if a fabric comes stain-resistant.

Are there other finish treatments available for the fabrics? What’s the lead-time?

Other treatments can be applied such as Knit back & flame resistant. Treatments generally add 7-10 business days to lead time. Contact your Sales rep for more information.

While the majority of Opuzen’s fabrics are AB2998 compliant, some fabrics do require flame treatment if this is desired. Contact customer service for further Information.

What are match-to’s and why are they needed for digital orders?

Since digital orders and samples are both made-to-order, we ask for match-to cuttings from client memo samples to ensure we are matching the colors correctly for production since colors may vary between prints.
