Dear business partner, kindly note our service information and General Terms of Payment and Delivery:
Prices: All prices are net, ex works and subject to alteration. All previous price lists are hereby deemed invalid.
Pieces approximately 20 m or more in length are considered warehouse items. Quantity deviations are possible within a standard commercial framework. Overdeliveries acc. to the scale described below are tolerable:
Up to 25 m 3 m
Up to 40 m 4 m
Up to 60 m 5 m
Up to 100 m 8 m
Up to 200 m 10 m

Cut lengths are subject to a surcharge of 25%. Minimum quantity: 1 m. The maximum metre increment without defects is 10 m for decorative fabrics and 5 m for items double the width or room height. Cutting larger quantities to length requires cutting dimensions.
Pattern repeats may vary acc. to finishing.
Colours: Deviations may occur within the standard industry framework and are not grounds for complaint.
Customised orders are available upon request. Delivery excess up to 10% is standard commercial practice and must be accepted. Minimum quantity upon request.
Additional finishings – air, bioaktiv and all in one – are possible for most articles. Minimum quantity and prices upon request.
Conditions: All deliveries must be carefully examined by the customer upon receipt, concerning colour, quality, dimensions and potential defects. Complaints made about items which have been cut to length or sewn will not be accepted. Potential errors in dimensions will only be recognised if the delivered item is sent back uncut with the delivery label within two weeks. Returns will only be accepted conditionally.
Cutting losses: Items which have been ordered incorrectly will only be taken back in exceptional cases following agreement. When issuing a goodwill credit, cutting losses can be deducted.
Recommended washing instructions: With the exception of blackouts, taffetas and sheers, all drapilux decorative fabrics can be washed at temperatures of up to 60 °C. Higher temperatures can increase residual shrinkage by 1 to 2% and slightly increase crease properties, which can be remedied by ironing the slightly damp fabric at point 1 or 2. Every delivery comes with a corresponding number of sew-in labels featuring care symbols.
The payment and delivery terms and conditions of the Association of the German Home Textiles Industry apply. The items are delivered ex works. The buyer is responsible for the shipping charges.
