From time to time we will also introduce new fabrics to our collections, which will be available for a limited time.
We endeavour to have the most popular fabrics in stock at our Lielies Studio. If we don’t have it in stock, we will order it from our suppliers. We can unfortunately not guarantee having a certain fabric in stock, as we are dependant of what is available in the market and there may be times that only certain fabrics are available.
Our online Lielies Shop clearly shows what fabrics are available. Or you can email us on email@example.com to get more information about the fabrics available.
Courier costs range between R100 & R300 per parcel and is specified with each item in our Shop. Please note that most of our products are very bulky and are subsequently charged per volumetric weight (length x width x height).
Collection to delivery times are:
- Main urban hubs = 2 to 3 working days
- Outlying areas = 3 to 4 working days
- In the area of Durban = 1 to 2 working days
Overnight delivery is available to ‘main areas’ within South Africa and is normally 4 x the normal courier price. Should you wish to have your parcel sent overnight to you, please let us know.
Cleaning Instructions for our stuffed products:
Use a soft cloth and gently wash the product with a diluted mixture of sunlight liquid and water. Do not rub the fabric. Leave in the sun to dry. For more stubborn marks and spots you can use Vanish liquid/water and gently treat the affected area – and again leave in the sun to dry.
The stuffed products can be immersed/soaked in water however great care must be taken to ensure that the ball fibre stuffing dries out completely after washing it this way. The product can be left in the sun to dry and be turned every few hours to ensure all water and moisture are drained/dried.
Lastly, the Lielies products can also be dry cleaned.
We have had a few moms that covered their SelfHelp chairs and other stuffed products in a fabric protector like Scotch Guard/Stain Guard and the feedback was that it was very easy to clean.
