The materialsOur smooth, woven velvet is made using 100% cotton. This material gives it strength, softness, breathability and a slight stretch, but we’ve also backed it with a cotton and polyester mix for excellent structure. As well as making it practical for everyday use, its close pile helps to keep the texture of the fabric even, so it steers clear of the rippled look you get with some lower quality velvets.
Doing the right thingThe dyes used on our velvets are approved by REACH, which regulates and minimises the use of harmful chemicals.
Where we see itBecause Isla has a straight pile, you don’t have to consider its direction on upholstery, cushions or curtains, so it’s the perfect place for anywhere in the home, including well-used areas. Depending on the colour you choose, it can create all kinds of moods too, from relaxed steely grey to luxurious jewel tones, like Kingfisher blue.
Bei kleineren Produkten arbeiten wir in der Regel mit drei Kurierdiensten zusammen – mit den dreien, die wir für die besten halten. So ist Ihre Bestellung schneller bei Ihnen Innerhalb von 24 Stunden, nachdem wir Ihre(n) Artikel verschickt haben, erhalten Sie eine E-Mail von unserem Lieferpartner, in der Sie Ihr Lieferdatum bestätigen müssen.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
When it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.
And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at email@example.com.

For everyday cleaning on upholstery, gently brush the fabric with a dry sponge and vacuum the material with an upholstery attachment. For cushions, regularly turn and shake them to avoid hard to remove, long-term wrinkles. If there are marks on the velvet, carefully wipe these away with a dry sponge or velvet brush, but for deep cleaning, we recommend dry cleaning only.
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make them as small as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres. If you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, we recommend ordering as many metres as you need in one go –that way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.
A note on safety: if you’d like to use this fabric to upholster a piece of furniture yourself, then you should purchase an interliner (which you can find at upholstery and fabric shops) to go with it. This is also known as a barrier cloth which is used underneath the main fabric to ensure that the upholstered furnishing meets fire regulations. It won’t make the fabric completely fire retardant, but it will slow down a fire should it catch alight. Of course, if you order this or any of our fabrics on Neptune pre-upholstered pieces, we’ll also use the relevant interliner.
What is a Martindale score?
It's the amount of rubs an upholstery fabric can take before it begins to show signs of wear. We split the results of these tests into three categories: low, medium and high. Our low rub count – between 10,000 to 15,000 – means the material is suitable for occasionally used furniture for short periods of time, such as bedroom pieces. The medium rub count sits between 15,000 to 25,000 and is suited to general upholstery that’s used every day like armchairs and sofas. Our high rub count is between 25,000 to 30,000 or more – fabric with this score can cope well when used every day in public places such as hotels, as well as the home.
