USA: Buying British fabric and wallpaper

Are you in the USA? Ordering from the UK just got a whole deal easier. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has raised the value of a shipment of merchandise imported by one person on one day that generally may be imported free of duties and taxes. All the more reason to talk to us about the best in British fabrics and wallpapers.

From March 10th 2016 U.S. Customs and Border Protection has raised the value of a shipment of merchandise imported by one person on one day that generally may be imported free of duties and taxes from $200 to $800. That means if you order fabric or wallpaper from us here in the UK then you’ll avoid an unpleasant surcharge from US customs.

If you are in the USA please still be aware of a couple of important points:

  1. your bank may not allow your credit card to function for international purchases; this seems to be quite common but is usually easily resolved if you phone your bank or card provider (it is for your own security),
  2. the cost of shipping on smaller orders of fabrics (e.g 1 or 2 metres) can often be disproportionate. This is because fabric is shipped on a roll to avoid creasing and so the parcel is usually 150cm long (59inches).

The good news is that couriers like UPS/DHL/FedEx etc are fast. Embarrassingly fast – in fact we can deliver to New York faster than we can send to large parts of the UK!
