A full list of the fabric care codes used on our fabrics can be found here.
‘Half Drop’ repeat is where every other horizontal repeat (from side to side) is dropped down one half of its length, i.e. the design repeats itself on the diagonal rather than the horizontal.
‘Straight Match’ is where the pattern repeats across the roll and is positioned at the same place at each selvedge.
‘Random Match’ is where there is no pattern match.
The term ‘railroaded’ refers to the orientation of the fabric’s pattern as it is woven on the fabric roll.
Regular fabric: The design is orientated to run along the length of the fabric and is the correct way as it comes off the roll.
Railroaded fabric: The design is orientated to run along the length of the fabric (selvedge to selvedge) so that you must turn the roll 90 degrees to show the design running the correct way. The width of the fabric is then used for the drop.
