Sorting the Samples

Our Samples Department

neoprene samples

We have a samples department run by a dedicated member of staff who’s sole job it is to pick and post the samples to you. We have a strategic method to ensure each of the fabrics gets a place in the samples department. New fabric has a strip sliced off then cut into smaller portions with a pinking guillotine. These are popped into clear wallets with its own spec sheet, to keep them clean and separate from other samples. The wallet is filed into its correct box -file. So when you call us, email or order online, the pre-cut samples are ready and waiting to be picked and posted straight to you with its own spec sheet attached.

New to our hessian range is a simple large holed net fabric, known as hessian scrim. Lightweight yet heavy duty, the structure may be basic but this fabric shows a lot of versatility from creative projects to industrial use. The netting is made from 100% natural and biodegradable hessian yarn loosely woven into roughly 1 cm square mesh. The hessian is woven in a natural state so the yarn is rough and taught with no stretch. It’s these attributes that make the hessian net so hard wearing and a great multi use fabric.
