Due to the swift nature of our order processing, we regret to inform you that once an order is placed, we are unable to make any amendments. As a small team committed to quality and expediency, our fulfillment process begins almost immediately after your order confirmation.

As an ECA-accredited business, we uphold the highest standards of transparency, fairness, and sustainability throughout our supply chain. This accreditation serves as a testament to our commitment to responsible manufacturing and our passion for creating positive change in the fashion world.

How can I be sure your fabrics are truly Australian Made and ethically produced?

We get it, trust is hard-earned. That's why we've made it official. We're a proud licensee of the Australian Made Campaign, meaning our knit fabrics don't just wave the Aussie flag, they're certified by the Australia Made certification. We don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk. But that's not all. We take our commitment to ethical production to heart. Our knit fabrics are not only 100% Australian-made, but we are also fully accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia. So when you choose Melco, you're choosing quality, authenticity, and ethical production all woven together. Just another way we're committed to offering the best to our customers!

Do you print your fabrics in house or is it done elsewhere?

Great question! At Melco, we believe in keeping things close to home. This is why we print and heat press our fabrics right here in-house. By overseeing the entire process from start to finish, we can ensure the high-quality, beautifully printed fabrics that our customers have come to expect from us. It's another way we are committed to delivering the best - from our house to yours!

When will my order be shipped?

For in-stock fabric, we'll set your order in motion within two to three business days from the time you place it. During public holidays or promotions, your patience will be much appreciated as we might need a tad longer to pack your order. We hustle from Monday to Friday and take a well-deserved pause on Public Holidays.

For made-to-order fabric (that includes our art printed fabrics), we request a bit more of your patience - around 10 to 12 full working days from the day you place your order to manufacture the fabric. Please note that this is an estimate and during busy periods and sales this timeframe may be extended.

Here's a crucial heads up: if your order contains both made-to-order (art printed fabrics) and standard in-stock plain fabrics, we'll ship your order as a single package when the art fabrics are ready for dispatch. If you're eager to get your standard in-stock fabrics sooner, we recommend placing a separate order. At Melco, we're all about getting you your order as quickly and efficiently as possible, while ensuring the quality and care you expect from us. Your understanding is much appreciated!

How do I order a length longer than 50cm?

Our fabric is sold in 50cm increments for your convenience. If you require a longer length, add multiple quanities to your cart and it will be cut in one length. Example:

- Add two units to your cart for a 100cm length x width of fabric

- Add three units to your cart for a 150cm length x width of fabric

- Add four units to your cart for a 200cm length x width of fabric

Do you ship internationally?

Currently we offer shipping within Australia and to our friends in New Zealand.

I can''t find information on each fabric base, where can i find it?

Right next to the drop down where you can select your fabric base is a hyperlink "Fabric base information". Click it to read important information such as width, gsm and fabric composition.

Where are you located?

Our cozy warehouse is nestled in the heart of the Central Coast NSW in Charmhaven.

Do you have a shopfront?

While we don't operate a traditional storefront, we do offer a curated retail space within our warehouse. You're warmly invited to visit and discover unique items not featured on our website.

If I am local can I pick up my order?

Indeed, you can! Click and collect is available for locals who'd prefer to pick up their orders. Please note that pickup times are by appointment only, and we'll reach out to schedule a collection time once your order is ready.

What if my purchase doesn't meet my expectations? Can I return it?

We strive for your absolute satisfaction with every Melco purchase. However, if your order doesn't quite hit the mark, we're here to help. We know that buying fabric online can be daunting. That's why we offer a 30-Day Happiness Guarantee. If the fabric you receive doesn't spark your creativity or meet your standards, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund. It's our way of ensuring your peace of mind with every purchase.

Please note that the refund amount will be less the original shipping cost.

To be eligible for a return, items must be in new, unworn/unwashed/uncut condition, just as you received them.

We're confident you'll love our products, but we also understand that sometimes things just don't work out. That's why we make our return process as smooth as our fabrics!

Are the colours on your website accurate to what the fabric will look like?

We strive to represent our fabric colors as accurately as possible. However, keep in mind that screen displays can vary, so there might be slight differences in color when you receive your fabric.

What if I find a fault with my order?

We know that buying fabric online can be daunting. That's why we offer a 30-Day Happiness Guarantee. If the fabric you receive doesn't spark your creativity or meet your standards, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund. It's our way of ensuring your peace of mind with every purchase.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unwashed, and in the same condition you received it. Please include your order number and your name in your email, or submit an enquiry via our contact page.

What is the cost of shipping?

We cap Standard domestic shipping at $12.99 AUD. Orders to New Zealand are based on the cubic volume at checkout. 

Why are there two options of shipping at checkout?

We believe in providing flexible options to cater to everyone's needs. That's why at checkout, we give you two choices for shipping:

Standard Postage - Shipped with the most economical means to your location (Australia Post or Aramex).
EXPRESS Postage - Also through Australia Post, for those who need their items quickly. 

But here's a heads up! Selecting "EXPRESS Postage" doesn't mean your order will jump the queue for dispatch or be shipped instantly - we'd need a team of superhumans for that! It simply means that once dispatched, your order will travel through the Express Post network of Australia Post, which is generally faster than Standard Post. We wish we could bend time, but until then, we appreciate your understanding!

How do I find the width and gsm of your fabrics?

Right next to the drop down where you can select your chosen fabric base is a hyperlink "Fabric base information". Click it to read important information such as width, gsm and fabric composition.
