Only Oilcloths – Terms & Conditions

About our Oilcloths

Our luxury oilcloth tablecloths have been made to the highest standard using only the best quality cotton fabrics & plastic coatings sourced mainly from the UK. Most spillages are simply wiped from the surface using a damp cloth. Spillages should not be left unwiped for too long, as there are certain items which will stain if left in contact with the surface. These include tomato-based sauces (curry, bolognese etc), nail/shoe polishes & ink. 

While the oilcloth surface is a wipeable and waterproof finish, the underside of our oilcloths is made from a luxury woven cotton, and as such should be kept dry and clean.

Only Oilcloths only use premium quality cotton fabrics (sourced mainly from the UK), and all of these cotton fabrics are coated in the UK using the highest quality child safe oilcloth finish.

All oilcloths are approximately 132cms in width (unless otherwise specified on the product page). This is not necessarily an exact width, and may have a standard tolerance of up to 2.5%.

Caring for your Oilcloth

All of our oilcloths are made from 100% cotton fabric which has been given a special PVC (Vinyl) coating to give the unique wipe clean and easy care finish.

If you opted for a folded oilcloth, any creases occurring from the shipping of the oilcloth will drop out over time when placed on the table. To speed up this process, the oilcloths can be ironed with a cool iron on the underneath (cotton side) of the oilcloth.

It is recommended that any spillages are wiped away immediately with a damp cloth (dilute soap solution can also be used).  Please be aware that some items may stain your oilcloth if left in contact for any length of time. These include: some tomato based sauces, curry sauces, ball-pen ink, shoe polish or nail varnish. Newspaper print may also transfer onto the cloth if it is still damp from wiping.

The oilcloth can be damaged by hot cooking oil and will not withstand plates or dishes which have come directly from a hot oven being placed directly upon it.

Our oilcloths are great for brightening up your garden table. However, as they are 100% cotton on the underneath, it is recommended that they are not left outside when not in use, to prevent the cotton from getting damp and/or wet which could result in causing damage and deterioration to your oilcloth tablecloth.

Colour matching & shading variances

We endeavour to make all photographs of the oilcloths on our website a true representation to the colour of the fabric. However, all computers & laptops can have different colour settings, and so may show up differently on your screen. If you are unsure about the colour of the oilcloth, we would recommend you use our free sample service. All samples are sent out to UK addresses free of charge, and should be delivered within 2-3 days of being requested.

Making a Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on ‘Checkout’ and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept card payments. If you are shopping from Europe or anywhere else, place your order and your card company will convert the transaction to Euros or your own currency.

We accept most major credit cards as well as PayPal, Apple pay, Google pay and Klarna. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped. If you do not wish to pay online, please call us on 01253-726666 and we are happy to take your order over the telephone.

If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us as soon as possible and we will correct the mistake.

When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently underpriced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Returns Policy

All of our oilcloth tablecloths are made-to-measure and cut to order, therefore we are unable to accept returns unless there is a manufacturing fault.  The drop down menu sizes are for convenience of ordering and are not ‘stock sizes’.  Please take advantage of our free sample service if you are unsure that the colour and/or design will match your decor.

In the unusual event of a manufacturing fault within the material, please contact us prior to sending any items back. We may ask for an emailed photo of the fabric fault.

Please therefore take extra care when measuring your table, and ensure that you do order enough extra length in the oilcloth for your overhang.

These terms apply to your order. We may change our terms and conditions at any time, so please do not assume that the same terms will apply in the future.

Shipping And Handling 

All individual oilcloth orders are also sent with a trackable courier.
You will have a choice of whether you would like the oilcloth folded, or on a cardboard tube.

Customers will be liable to pay any local import duties/taxes (where applicable).

Delivery Schedule

We aim to ship all orders as quickly as possible. Please click here to see our Delivery Section for more details about delivery times.

If the oilcloth is damaged in transit, please do not sign for the parcel, and inform us within 24hrs so we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please quote your order number in all correspondence. If a parcel has been signed for, delivery companies will assume that it was received in good condition.

You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Tax Charges

For orders made from the UK, 20% VAT is added. All other orders are UK VAT free, but local taxes/duties will need to be paid for by the customer.
