To the full extent permitted by law neither Geraldine Rae Ltd nor any associated company, shall be liable to you by reason of any representation, or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the contract, or in negligence (whatever on the part of Geraldine Rae Ltd or any of its agents, directors, employees or otherwise) for any indirect special or consequential loss or damage (including but not limited to loss of profit or loss of saving) costs, expenses or other claims for compensation, whatsoever which arise out of or in connection with the use of this website, the supply of the products or their use or resale by you.
All goods supplied by Geraldine Rae Ltd are supplied on the condition that our liability for any fault or defect in the quality, condition, description or fitness for any purpose is a sum not exceeding the purchase price of the particular goods. It is the customer’s or agent’s responsibility to check that they have received the correct design and colour before forwarding to any third party for further processing. Once forwarded to any third party no liability can be accepted for errors which may occur. That condition supersedes any conflicting term submitted to us and any other liability, statutory or otherwise, is excluded.
Data Protection and Privacy
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for two reasons. First to process your order and second to provide you with the best possible service. We will not pass your e-mail address to other trusted traders unless you agree. The type of information we will collect about you includes your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. We will not retain credit or debit card details. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.
The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. The personal information which we hold will be held securely. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly. If you have any questions/comments about privacy, you should also email us.
Most customers work directly with designers to select and buy our fabrics and wallpapers. Retail customers may contact us directly at email@example.com or telephone 01843 862818 for a price quotation and further information. Please be aware that there is a minimum order of 2 metres on all of our products.
Products and sampling
We take great care to ensure that the description and specification of our products are correct at time of preparation of this website. However, specifications and descriptions of products on this website are not intended to be binding and are intended to give a general description only of the products. Furthermore and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, while the colour reproduction of the products is a close representation, we cannot accept any responsibility for any variation in colour caused by the browser software or computer system used by you.
Please note that our extra wide wallpapers are made from natural materials and are mostly hand printed and so could contain some small blemishes. Such isolated marks can be cut round without excessive wastage. Please carefully follow the hanging instructions supplied with each order.
Please also note that all natural fabrics can shrink to some extent when cleaned. Please follow any instructions when cleaning. We would, however, strongly recommend that all our products are dry-cleaned only. Also, although our products have considerable resistance to fading in light, all fabrics do fade eventually. In particular silk has low light fading characteristics and no claims will be accepted for fading. Lightproof linings and interlinings should be used when making silk curtains or blinds.
Fibres are mostly 100% natural and any speckling and shade change is an inherent quality of the fabric. Colours may vary accordingly. Given the hand printed nature of these products there may be some slight imperfections; these are inherent and desirable qualities of the process. It is also a characteristic of natural textiles that there will be variations in the weave, colour and texture, including occasional slubs. To ensure exact colour matching all quantities required for future use should be ordered at one time.
You should be aware that natural fabrics such as linen, linen union and silk can easily crease and need to be handled with care during the making process. This is fully rewarded by the beautiful, rich nature and texture of natural fabrics.
Most of our printing is by hand (with the exception of digitally printed striped wallpaper) and therefore colours may not always be exact. It is in the nature of hand printing and the hand crafted nature of our other products and, in particular embroidery, that there may be small variations and imperfections in finish. These should be regarded as an inherent part of craft based production and a traditional and authentic characteristic of the process. As such claims for such irregularities will not be accepted under any circumstances.
Please be aware that there is a charge of £2 per sample for samples supplied.
Please be aware that the gold metallic could lift if used for anything other than light upholstery, drapes and general soft furnishings.
Martindale test results are available upon request.
All patterns and designs can be custom coloured to your specification. However there will be an additional cost, minimum order requirement and an extended lead time for custom work, which should be discussed and agreed at time of order.
