We do our best to describe an item's color in each description we write. We hold each fabric to the window to observe the color in natural light. We scratch our heads searching for just the right color terms. In spite of our best intentions, we can never guarantee exact colors or color matching because of this simple fact: Variations in monitor or mobile color settings are just too wide from device to device. This is why we strongly encourage you to order a swatch before purchasing your fabric or trim. Trust us, customers who follow this advice never regret this step. If you are concerned that a fabric may become sold out by the time you receive your swatch, you can always call Mood customer service to ask if this is likely to happen with the fabric you are swatching.
