Welcome to The Creative Critter Collective, below you will find information on how ordering from us works
Terms and Conditions
Please note that website photos and actual fabric color can vary. Our fabric is digitally printed from 300dpi photo files this produces vibrant beautiful colors. Coloring can also vary slightly from one printing to the next as many factors come into play during the printing process. Any large variation will be considered a flaw and will be handled under our flaw policy. Color may also vary from base to base as different fiber contents will not always accept the printing process in the same manner. Please note this when you are choosing different bases to work with on the same project. This is not within our control and is done at your risk of not being a complete match.

With any fabric it is not unusual to have a few flaws here and there, often they are small and run along the Salvage or ends of bolts, tiny speckles or feathering. Lines that look like creases are also a possibility - usually they are superficial and will come out when washed /dried. Dirt or smudges are not considered a flaw. Compensation for large flaws (anything larger than a quarter) will only be made by reprinting in the next round. You will need to provide photos and return fabric to us if requested. Any missed printings will also be made up in the next round. We must be notified of flaws, or missing fabric from your order within two weeks of receipt. Once Fabric is washed all guarantees and warranties are null and void. International orders with flawed or missing will be given a store credit. You may repurchase this same designs or new ones at anytime.
Manufacturers recommend care procedures:
PUL - Care and wash: New Instructions! As of Round 12 - Christmas -August 2020! (Baby Bumblebees purchased previous to round 12 should still be washed in no hotter than 40 degrees c. this PUL will have a transparent Laminate) There is no need to prewash our PUL fabric/ Machine wash warm or hot - (PUL with white laminate backing) If washing on hot water temp not to exceed 60°C/104 Fahrenheit It is always recommended to air dry PUL. If you choose to tumble dry do so at your own risk on low or air and only for 10-15 minutes just to remove moisture then hang to dry. Do not iron Do not dry clean No bleach, vinegar, or oxy-type products Bleach, vinegar, and Oxy-clean products are harsh and over time can damage your PUL. Regular or HE laundry detergent only for longer lasting PUL. The Creative Critter Collective PUL Can withstand plenty of use and the repeated washing necessary for cloth diapers and other reusable items. PUL should not be dried on HIGH heat in a dryer, very high air heat can cause PUL to wear prematurely, delaminate, warp or melt. It is not necessary to "seal" seams in PUL by drying prior to use, and this practice could potentially damage your fabric. Line drying in the sun is always a great and the best way to naturally sanitize your diapers! The process and materials our manufacturer use (which is also eco-friendly and green!) is why our PUL is so buttery soft and dreamy to sew on. Hot melt system is used to apply thin laminate to the back of printed 100% Polyester fabric. This is also what determines the best way to care for your material and creations. Care instructions vary between manufacturers. For those using The Creative Critter Collective's PUL in small businesses, please share these correct care instructions with your customers. Our PUL is CPSIA certified and GRAS (Generally regarded as Safe) for Food contact.
