Terms & Conditions
Default payment terms are Proforma. Terms of NET THIRTY DAYS from date of invoice require a credit review and approval. Shipments are F.O.B. Bethpage, N.Y., F.O.B. Anderson, S.C., or F.O.B. Poole, England.
Pricing for trade accounts only can be found online at kravet.com. Prices are subject to change without notice. All shipping and special processing charges are additional.
When placing an order be sure ALL information is provided, including pattern name or number, color, all shipping instructions and sidemarks.
If an exact color match is required, please request a cutting of present stock for approval (CFA) or send a cutting to be matched.
Color variations often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another.
Time can be saved if you specify the end use for which the fabric is intended; and if it is for draperies, please specify the lengths needed.
Please make a note for Multiple Width Draperies-Fabric, unlike paper, is not a completely stable substance; therefore it cannot be guaranteed when it is printed, the pattern will invariably be completely “square” upon the cloth.
Although every effort is made when printing to avoid distortion, occasionally it will exist. Therefore, when planning multiple-width draperies, please make certain, BEFORE CUTTING, that pattern alignment is adequate to produce a satisfactory end result.
NOTE: MINIMUM ORDER (2) TWO YARDS
Please specify shipping instructions if a particular carrier is preferred. If no instructions are provided, shipments will be routed by the carrier we deem most expedient.
When inquiring about an order always be sure to reference the pattern name and number, color and yardage required.
Reserves placed on fabric will be honored for 7 calendar days. Pro-Forma fabrics will be held for 14 calendar days.
Cuttings for approval (CFA) will be held for 14 calendar days after being sent from our warehouses.
Memorandum samples are available on loan upon request. It is a Decorative Fabric Association requirement that memo samples be returned within thirty days. A pre-paid return envelope is provided with each memo shipment.
RETURNS & CLAIMS
No returns for Fabric, Trimming or Wallcovering will be accepted without a written return authorization from Kravet Inc.
Return authorization requests must include the invoice number, date of invoice and reason for the return. All requests for return and credit must be made within 30 days of the invoice date.
Fabric cannot be returned for credit after it has been cut. Yardage must be inspected for flaws and correctness of pattern, color, quantity and quality.
Fabric cannot be returned for credit if it has been processed by the purchaser in any way.
No returns or cancellations will be accepted on any custom product or special order items once the order is in production.
Since color variations often cannot be avoided from one dye lot to another, we will not issue a credit for dye lot variations. If an exact match is required, please request a reserve and cutting of current stock for approval prior to shipping.
Kravet Inc. cannot be responsible for damages to fabric, carpet or furniture that occurs in transit, storage and delivery. All shipments are F.O.B. Warehouse.
Any authorized returns for 1st quality merchandise or any refused shipments are subject to a 25% restocking fee and all freight charges.
Merchandise Credits are non-transferrable and may not be redeemed for cash or applied as a payment to any account. Except as otherwise required by law, merchandise credits expire twelve (12) months from the date on which such credit is first issued.
Fabrics are not guaranteed against color fading, shrinkage or wear.
Fabric widths and repeats may vary.
Fabrics used as draperies, when held against light, cannot be guaranteed to be free of visible flaws.
Few fabrics are completely stable. Stretching or shrinking may occur as a result of fabric breathing and thereby absorbing moisture. A 2% - 3% change is reasonable.
SPECIAL PROCESS AND SERVICES
The addition of topical and backcoating treatments to any fabric can change the color, hand or performance. Kravet Inc. will not accept responsibility for any fabric that has been processed by an outside finisher.
Please order an additional 1 yard, per cut, to ensure sufficient return after working loss.
In accordance with the provisions of the Flammability Act, the products listed in the price list are not intended for use in the manufacture of wearing apparel.

CREDIT LIMIT If approved by Kravet Inc., the applicant will be assigned a Credit Limit, which is subject to periodic revisions as Kravet Inc. deems necessary.
SALES TAX By law, Kravet Inc. and its subsidiaries is required to collect sales tax in any state or jurisdiction where we have a corporate office and/or showroom or may otherwise be doing business. Sales tax charges are based on the state or jurisdiction the orders are shipped to, and not the state or jurisdiction the business resides in. Customers who provide us with a valid resale tax certificate are not charged sales tax when goods are shipped into that state. By entering into a Terms and Conditions agreement with Kravet Inc., you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for being in compliance with all applicable state and federal laws, including responsibility for paying all applicable state and local taxes imposed on the distribution/sales of any applicable products. You also acknowledge and agree that you are required to provide a State Resale Certificate or Exemption form to Kravet Inc. at Salestax@Kravet.com to be considered tax exempt in a specific state or jurisdiction. Kravet Inc. and its subsidiaries is not responsible for those taxes that you are legally required to pay or collect from consumers at the point of sale. Kravet Inc. does not warrant the operation and validity of the resale certificate. It is your responsibility to provide Kravet Inc. with a valid and appropriate “Resale Tax Exemption Certificate”, to demonstrate under applicable law that products sold and delivered to you are delivered for resale in the ordinary course of business and therefore not subject to sales or other applicable tax, if any at the time of sale from Kravet Inc. to you.
RETURNED PAYMENTS- A service charge of $35.00 will be applicable for any returned check or ACH/Electronic Payment transaction.
REVOCABILITY When invoices are past due, or if the applicant’s account has reached its assigned Credit Limit, Kravet Inc., at its own discretion, retains the right to hold shipments pending payment. Kravet Inc. may also place the applicant on Proforma or other cash terms for failure to pay within terms.
LITIGATION In the event of any litigation arising out of this agreement, the applicant agrees to pay all reasonable attorney fees and other costs of collection.
WAIVER The failure of Kravet Inc. to enforce any provision of this agreement does not waive Kravet Inc.’s rights to enforce the remaining provisions of this agreement.
STATE LAWS This Credit Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State in which credit is extended.
