Need to return your fabric?

All fabric must be unwashed/uncut to be eligible to return. Return shipping is at the expense of the customer and refunds will be processed only once we have received the fabric back in hand.

Fabric purchased as flawed is not eligible to return/refund.

Fabric purchased as unflawed is eligible to return as long at it was not a custom order. All fabric returns must be requested within 14 days of receiving your package (based on tracking dates). 

Please contact us at barenecessitiesfabrics@gmail.com to arrange the return of your fabric. For flaw issues on (supposed to be unflawed) fabric received we address each case individually.
