£3.95 on orders under £75
Free on orders of £75 or more
Delivery charges include VAT

We aim to despatch goods to UK addresses within three working days of receipt of your order, provided the goods are in stock. However, from time to time, through circumstances beyond our control, this may not be possible. In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, we will notify you of the delay and despatch it as soon as it has been restocked.

Please allow up to five working days for delivery.

UK orders are dispatched by Royal Mail or courier, depending on size and weight. Orders which are delivered by courier will require a signature on delivery. For this reason we cannot deliver to PO Boxes. If you are not available to sign for your delivery, the delivery company will post a card through your door asking you to contact them to arrange an alternative delivery date.

We cannot deliver to multiple addresses; if you wish to send different items to different addresses you must treat each address as a separate order.

It is the buyer’s responsibility to check for any damage to packing materials and products before accepting delivery of the products, and to report any damage by the delivery company within 48 hours. In the unlikely event that there is damage, please DO NOT accept delivery, DO NOT sign the delivery sheet; instead ask the driver for a damaged freight report which will need your signature. Contact us as soon as possible. Goods are not covered by transit insurance once you have accepted delivery. If goods are delayed in transit this is beyond our control, and postage refunds will not be given.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that the correct product has been delivered to any other third party such as a curtain maker.

Delivery dates supplied by Emily Burningham London are estimates. We are not liable for the consequence of any delay. We will make every effort to keep you informed of any delays.

Any delay of part of an order against an estimated delivery date does not entitle the buyer to cancel the order.

c) No claim will be considered in any circumstances should the goods have been cut, modified or damaged by buyer in any way.

d) It is a characteristic of natural textiles that there will be variations in the weave, colour and texture including occasional slubs and as such claims for irregularities will not be accepted under any circumstances. To ensure exact colour matching it is advised to order quantities required for future use at one time. While every effort is made to ensure accuracy of colours, because of the limitations of the printing process, variations may occur and colours may not always be exact. The sample you order may come from a different batch to the material you receive. For more information about the production of the textiles and printing process please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

e) We will not be held responsible for any miscalculation of fabric orders. It is the responsibility of the customer to check all fabric details including repeats and drops.

f) We will not be held responsible for any fabrics fading if they have been exposed to small amounts of gas, carbon monoxide, sun, strong lights or if they have been treated after leaving us, such as Flame retarding or softeners, all of which can have an effect on the fastness.

g) Claims for labour charges will not be accepted under any circumstances.


Your Warranty:

You, the buyer, warrant that all details provided on the order form/over the telephone for the purpose of purchasing the products are correct, that the debit/credit card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds and/or sufficient unused limit available to cover the cost of the products.



We may from time to time change, alter, adapt, add or remove portions of these terms and conditions but if we do so we will post any such changes on the website.

If any provision of these terms and conditions is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of the other provisions of this Agreement and the remainder of the provision in question will not be affected.

English law will apply to this Agreement, and the parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive English courts.

The headings in this Agreement are for convenience only and will not affect their interpretation.


Fabric Information:

There is a 0.5 metre minimum order for fabrics.

As with all natural textiles, colour variation may occur from batch to batch, and whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy of colours we ask you to check your fabric before cutting. We strongly advise you to get a swatch before you finalise your order. Responsibility for fabric or shade variation will not be accepted after cutting.

We recommend that all our fabrics are dry cleaned only.

Most fabrics will fade after lengthy exposure to strong sunlight, some fabric treatments, and carbon monoxide. We therefore advise that all our fabrics should be lined and interlined for curtaining windows. Please read the CLAIMS section for more information.

You can cover your windows with a UV reflective film that will protect all of your soft furnishings.

Our fabrics are not fire retardant, however we can assist you if you need to use our fabrics for commercial purposes.

Computer images may not accurately represent the design colourways, therefore save for your right to Cancel (please see relevant section) refunds are not accepted.


Fabric Samples:

Swatches are supplied free of charge with a maximum of 4 samples per customer. Returnable samples are available and remain the property of Emily Burningham London. They must be returned within 14 days of receipt otherwise they will be invoiced at the price of half a metre. Emily Burningham London will retain credit card details in the event payment needs to be taken.

Fitness for purpose: the buyer must satisfy themselves that any product supplied by Emily Burningham London is fit for the purpose for which it is purchased prior to ordering.


Remnants :

These price offers are only available via our website or by placing an order over the phone.

Due to the nature of our remnants and clearance section, swatches are not always available. Computer images may not accurately represent the design colourways, therefore save for your right to cancel (please see relevant section) refunds are not accepted.
