Announcement    Please read this: IMPORTANT!!! Most items ship (free) from/within USA - not from my studio in Australia - The Etsy mobile app has a glitch (they are aware of this & trying to fix it) where my shop location (AU) is overriding the Shipping origin settings of my items, so it may look as though the items are being sent from/within Australia - this is an error! Please read my item DESCRIPTIONS & DELIVERY POLICIES. If you're unsure, please reach out and ask me - I'm friendly and I'd love to help you :)

WELCOME
============
Hey there, I'm Lauren. The Australian designer and illustrator of Thistle and Fox Fabrics & Wallpapers. The prints in my Etsy shop are all designed by me. Some are based on antique botanical illustrations mixed with my own drawings. Many are based on my original watercolour & pencil illustrations.
➤ I'm an ILLUSTRATOR & DESIGNER ONLY | Printing of my designs is all outsourced to professional printing businesses in U.S & Australia.
Only my 'Custom Handmade' items & 'Fabrics Printed in Australia' ship within Australia. All other orders are printed on demand by Spoonflower & ship for free from the United States.

+++++++ WALLPAPER & DRAWER LINER PAPER ++++++
'Woven' Peel and Stick Wallpaper (drawer liner) has now been replaced by the much better Peel & Stick PAPER.
• New Peel and Stick Paper is great for Wallpaper or Drawer Liner applications.
• Sourced and manufactured in the U.S. = stable supply chain + reduced carbon footprint.
• Paper-based product, instead of a woven polyester textile.
• Tear-resistant and does not fray, making it great for small DIY projects (drawer liners, covering notebooks, furniture, computers, stair risers etc).
Please note: there will be subtle differences in the printed colours between a sample of the previous WOVEN material and the new Peel & Stick Paper.

I am in the process of updating all my listing images & videos with this new information & the new list of materials. Please bear with me while these changes are being put into place. Thankyou

========= HOLIDAYS ==========
my shop will remain open during the holiday season but please be aware that some orders may take longer to print and shipping transit time is generally slower. Need your order by a particular date? Allow plenty of time & contact me to arrange Express delivery.

======== PRODUCTION INFO =========
➤ All of my WALLPAPER/DRAWER LINERS & FABRICS ARE PRINTED ON DEMAND.
Most fabrics & wallpapers are sent from the USA and some fabrics are produced & shipped only within Australia ---> my listings are location specific.
➤ Fabric PRINTED IN AUSTRALIA can only be shipped within AU.
➤ Fabric by the YARD is specifically for USA residents but can now be ordered if you live in CA, AU or NZ.
➤ Fabric by the METRE is specifically for CA, AU & NZ residents can now be ordered if you live in USA.
➤ If you place an order for Fabric by the Yard and Fabric by the Metre, they will be printed and shipped separately (I know, it's mind bending, but that's how these orders are processed by the printer)

➤ Wallpaper/Drawer Liners ship to all the above locations.
➤Sample rolls ship separately to longer roll lengths.

➤ The Spoonflower Berlin printing location closed this year so I no longer able to quickly fulfil EU & UK orders. See info below >>
=================
FAQ: DO YOU SHIP TO MY LOCATION?
I had to make the tough decision this year to no longer offer my Etsy shop items for locations other than USA, CA, AU & NZ. But that doesn't mean you can't buy my designs! If your location isn't listed, contact me & I will provide you with the details for where you can order the same items that are available in my Etsy shop but produced closer to where you live!

About ThistleandFox

On Etsy since 2011

FABRIC & WALLPAPER PRINTED ON DEMAND | Quality Materials | Customizations Welcome | Send me a message | Thankyou for visiting 😊

Hi, I’m Lauren, an Australian illustrator & surface pattern designer. I make lots of things from my fabrics too.

Over 10 years ago, I opened Thistle and Fox on Etsy as a place to sell the custom plush toys and dresses I had been making for local markets and samples I’d created while studying pattern making and advanced sewing skills at TAFE. I am always designing, dreaming and making things with fabric and thread. I'm a fan of linen dresses with big skirts, pockets and buttons.

For the last 8 years I've been building a large portfolio of prints which are custom printed on wallpapers & fabrics suitable for crafting, quilting and fashion garments. Modern Australiana, romantic watercolour florals, botanicals, delicate pencil drawings, cute animals and vintage style designs can all be found in my portfolio: https://www.thistleandfox.com/portfolio

Join me on Instagram for behind the scenes sneak peeks of my studio and special offers no one else has access to!

Frequently asked questions

NO CANCELLATIONS

Why can't I cancel my Order?

✔ FABRIC & WALLPAPER is CUSTOM PRINTED ON DEMAND

When you place an order it may begin printing in as little as 12hrs. I send you a confirmation email via Etsy. After this time your order cannot be cancelled.

Please make sure you carefully read all info in each listing regarding production & shipping times. And take note of my shop policies.

If you have made a mistake or need to change any details please contact me immediately. It won't always be possible to make changes but I will do what I can to help.

Please note that I do not sell pre-printed mass produced products. Every item is custom made just for you. For this reason I cannot accept returns, exchanges or order cancellations. I hope you understand

Can I sell items I've made using your fabrics?

Yes, of course you can! You are buying fabric from an indie designer but its just like buying fabric from any store (only much much better!), its yours to use as you wish for any project, either for yourself or for your shop.

I always appreciate a mention as the print designer (though its not a requirement!) and I really love to see what you create when using my fabrics so get in touch with a pic or link to your finished projects or products. Discovering a photo of my fabrics being used is a highlight of my day!

What is Petal Cotton?

Petal Signature Cotton is a quilting cotton exclusively printed via Spoonflower. Any of my designs can be printed on this fabric & many others!

For photos and a full list of the types of fabric available to be printed by Spoonflower, please take a look at the Choosing Materials page on my website:
https://www.thistleandfox.com/choosing-materials

Fabric specs are also listed in the description text of every listing.

Which wallpaper material should I use? PEEL & STICK vs SMOOTH

✔ All these wallpapers are safe for kids rooms.
Choose paper based on your climate, the use of the space, wall surface and whether you will be installing the paper yourself or getting help from a professional.

✔ Peel & Stick wallpaper is self adhesive paper. Wall surface must be totally smooth, clean, dry, dust free for the paper to adhere properly. Fully removable up to 2 years later. Also great for wall decals, crafts and decorating furniture. Perfect for drawer liners!

✔ Smooth wallpaper is water activated - soak in water to activate the glue side and apply to clean dry smooth walls.

✔ Traditional wallpaper (special order only) is professional commercial grade luxe wallpaper with a subtle pebble texture. Contact me for more info

Shipping Info for fabrics & wallpaper - Part 1

✔ Please note: I do not ship items from my studio. Some areas of the Etsy website have a default notification or map for shipping origin - please disregard this. It is a glitch in the Etsy website setup. Correct info is as follows:

With a portfolio of over 2000 designs and colourways it is impossible for me to keep all my fabric/wallpaper on hand in my studio in Australia so every order is printed on demand and shipped directly to you from my printing partners in the USA and Australia.
More info can be found in every item description & in my shop announcement section above.

✔ Regardless of where your order will be shipping from, you will always deal only with me, the fabric designer, illustrator and owner of Thistle and Fox.

Shipping Info for fabrics & wallpaper - Part 2

✔ Fabrics Printed in Australia - these materials are only available for shipping within AU at this time. A special section of my shop contains all the relevant listings: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/ThistleandFox?section_id=22557472

All other materials are printed via Spoonflower.
✔ Printing time can be up to 10 days (usually 2-3 business days)
✔ Within the USA, orders arrive within 4-10 days of shipment.
✔ Standard shipping is free.
✔ Express shipping is available on request for an additional fee.

More info: https://www.thistleandfox.com/shop-policies

Production time / Printing time

Fabrics & Wallpapers typically take 3-10 business days to be created and are drop shipped from the printer directly to you.

Sometimes an order will ship much faster than anticipated. Please make sure your shipping address is correct. A change of address is not possible once an order begins printing even if it hasn't been marked as shipped yet.

I send out an order confirmation message within 24hrs of your order being placed. Once sent, the order cannot be altered or cancelled. Please check your order details!

Fabrics printed in Australia will take longer to print - 10-15 days for most orders. The Australian printer is a small family run business with fewer resources. Good things take time. Thanks for understanding!
