Terms & Conditions


PAYMENT

Payment terms are according to terms established and agreed upon when your account was set up either by your sales representative or the main office.

PRICING

Pricing for trade accounts only can be found online at edesigntrade.com. Prices are subject to change without notice. All shipping and special processing charges are additional.

ORDERING

When placing an order be sure ALL information is provided, including pattern name or number, color, all shipping instructions and sidemarks. If an exact color match is required, please request a cutting of present stock for approval (CFA) or send a cutting to be matched. Color variations often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another. Time can be saved if you specify the end use for which the fabric is intended; and if it is for draperies, please specify the lengths needed. Please make a note for Multiple Width Draperies-Fabric, unlike paper, is not a completely stable substance; therefore it cannot be guaranteed when it is printed, the pattern will invariably be completely “square” upon the cloth. Although every effort is made when printing to avoid distortion, occasionally it will exist. Therefore, when planning multiple-width draperies, please make certain, BEFORE CUTTING, that pattern alignment is adequate to produce a satisfactory end result. Please specify shipping instructions if a particular carrier is preferred. If no instructions are provided, shipments will be routed by the carrier we deem most expedient.

INQUIRIES

When inquiring about an order always be sure to reference the pattern name and number, color and yardage required.

RESERVES

Reserves placed on fabric will be honored for 7 calendar days. Pro-Forma fabrics will be held for 14 calendar days. Cuttings for approval (CFA) will be held for 14 calendar days after being sent from our warehouses.

MEMO SAMPLES

Memorandum samples are available on loan upon request. It is a Decorative Fabric Association requirement that memo samples be returned within thirty days. A pre-paid return envelope is provided with each memo shipment.

SHIPPING

Please indicate on your order your desired method of shipment (via UPS). If no instructions are given, we will ship the fastest, most economical way, depending on the size of the package. COD shipments can only be sent via UPS. Oversized shipments will receive the carrier’s standard additional charges.

RETURNS & CLAIMS

No returns for Fabric, Trimming or Wallcovering will be accepted without a written return authorization from Rothman Associates. Return authorization requests must include the invoice number, date of invoice and reason for the return. All requests for return and credit must be made within 30 days of the invoice date. Fabric cannot be returned for credit after it has been cut. Yardage must be inspected for flaws and correctness of pattern, color, quantity and quality. Fabric cannot be returned for credit if it has been processed by the purchaser in any way. No returns or cancellations will be accepted on any custom product or special order items once the order is in production. Since color variations often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another, we will not issue a credit for dye lot variations. If an exact match is required, please request a reserve and cutting of current stock for approval prior to shipping. Rothman Associates cannot be responsible for damages to fabric, carpet or furniture that occurs in transit, storage and delivery. All shipments are F.O.B. Warehouse. Any authorized returns for 1st quality merchandise or any refused shipments are subject to a 25% restocking fee and all freight charges.

QUALITY LIMITATIONS

Fabrics are not guaranteed against color fading, shrinkage or wear. Fabric widths and repeats may vary. Fabrics used as draperies, when held against light, cannot be guaranteed to be free of visible flaws. Few fabrics are completely stable. Stretching or shrinking may occur as a result of fabric breathing and thereby absorbing moisture. A 2% – 3% change is reasonable.

SPECIAL PROCESSES AND SERVICES

The addition of topical and backcoating treatments to any fabric can change the color, hand or performance. Rothan Associates  will not accept responsibility for any fabric that has been processed by an outside finisher. Please order an additional 1 yard, per cut, to ensure sufficient return after working loss.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
