Why do the colours vary between individual tulle rolls?
We receive our products from an overseas supplier and from time to time there is a variance in dye lots, while they are still called the same colour the appearance may be slightly different. While we take the greatest care to match dye lots to provide consistency for our customers it is not always possible and beyond our control.
Where do Daisy Strings Products come from?
Daisy Strings products come from a range of sources including Australian and American companies. All handmade products are made in Australia from local and imported materials. We carefully select all products for quality, value for money and availability. For more information on which products are imported please contact us.
Is the tulle flame retardant?
No. We stock both polyester and nylon tulle and neither material is flame retardant. We take great care to ensure we only stock quality products and the only tulle we stock complies with U.S.A safety regulations.
