  • Are your Fabric images an exact match of the actual Fabric?

    Despite every effort to provide accurate images of each fabric's colour and design, actual colours and design may vary slightly to digital images, due to different device screen settings, the lighting in the installation location, and the scanning technique used. Skopos will not accept responsibility for any colour or design differences that are not factory faults. We strongly advise you to order a sample of your chosen fabrics, which you can do via this website or by calling our sales team - free of charge and ordinarily for next working day delivery - so that you may assess the physical sample, prior to ordering.
