Terms of Sale

Parcel orders within Canada will be shipped via Canada post and include tracking and $100 insurance. Within Alberta is flat rate $13 while the rest of Canada is flat rate $16.50. Lettermail is available for short cuts and small panel orders but does not come with tracking or insurance. Lettermail will only be available as a checkout option if your order qualifies for it.


Orders to the USA will be shipped once a week via USPS. The approximate rates are as follows for CL/Swim/Board/Woven. We can fit less FT or Squish in a single package as they are thicker fabrics:

1-2.5m $9.70 USD

3-6m $15.60 USD

7-10m $21.65 USD

Over 10m to be quoted at time of purchase. You will receive a US shipping invoice with the exact amount of your package once your order is cut, these prices are just an approximate guideline.

Retail orders can be cancelled within 24 hours so long as they have not already shipped. Preorder can only be cancelled while the preorder is still open. Once a round has closed and been submitted to the printer you can not cancel it. You may choose to find someone to purchase your preorder in full from you and ship directly to them. This is done on a case by case basis by messaging the business page.

You can choose to pay preorders in full or to split and pay 50% at the close of the preorder and 50% two weeks after. There is a $5 charge for layaway. You will receive one invoice that allows you to make multiple payments. There will be a reminder sent when the final payment is due. If you require any extensions for payment you MUST contact Bare Necessities fabric first. Any non-payments or ignoring messages/tags will result in the cancellation of your order and a refund of 80% of the total order value.

You may return any unwashed/uncut fabric within 2 weeks of receiving it. You are responsible for all return postage and only the fabric price will be refunded (not your original shipping). After 2 weeks no refunds will be given. This timeline is based on tracking dates.

Acceptable flaws for fabric by the meter include anything smaller than a nickel (with less than 2 occurrences per meter) and anything within the 4" along the selvedge. Fabric should be a minimum of 39.5" for 1m cuts. Panels should be completely flaw free. If you receive any fabric with flaws you must contact Bare Necessities Fabrics prior to washing it. Washed fabric is not eligible for refund or replacement. Flaw compensation for any issues above these will be on a case by case basis.

As all fabric is custom printed there may be slight color variances in the different prints and any subsequent reprints. By agreeing to purchase you accept this possible variance.

Minimal retail will be ordered (usually only enough to cover flaws) so please preorder early to avoid disappointment!

All fabrics are digitally printed. All cuts will be continuous up to 5m when possible. Turn around time is 6-10 weeks from preorder close, plus the time in transit shipping to you.

All website prices are in CAD.


Fabric can be purchased by the 1/2m or FH during a preorder. By default all listings are by the 1/2m. Multiple 1/2m quantities will be continuous. To request a preorder fabric as a FH be sure to leave a note when you are checking out.

We do not offer FH cuts on retail fabrics unless prior arrangements have been made.
