I need help with upholstery fabric
Taleisin needs new uphostery (last redone 14 years and 55,000 miles back). I have located the fabric I would like, but as I am in New Zealand where it is not available. I can not find a way to buy it for a reasonable price. US and Canadian Suppliers will not sell to anyone who does not have a commercial account. Can anyone assist me? The fabric we want is made (or sold) by Robert Allen Inc. It is a velvet like fabric with 100% cotton pile, 70% cotton 30% poly backing in Emerald Green. This is almost the same as very hard wearing stuff we used previously. Appreciate any assistance.

help with obtaining fabric to NZ

We don't have a relationship with Robert Allen Inc. and we're not likely to as it's not the kind of thing we would sell. If we can help by you ordering it to ship to us we'd be happy to forward to NZ for you. If there's something else we can do to help, let me know.
