    2. The Supplier shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties may agree (Delivery Location) at any time after the Supplier notifies the Customer that the Goods are ready.

    5. Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence.

      2. The Supplier shall store the Goods until delivery takes place and charge the Customer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).

    9. The Supplier may deliver the Goods by installments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Any delay in delivery or defect in an installment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other installment.
    10. No claims or returns can be accepted for any faults or errors once the fabric has been cut. Please inspect the fabric before cutting to ensure it meets your satisfaction. If you are in doubt, do not cut the fabric but contact our sales office for advice.

      1. conform with their description and Specification; and
      2. be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship.
    2.  Subject to clause 5.3, if:
      1. the Customer gives notice in writing to the Supplier within 14 days of discovery that some or all of the Goods do not comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1;
      2. the Supplier is given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Goods; and
      3. the Customer (if asked to do so by the Supplier) returns such Goods to the Supplier's place of business at the Customer's cost; then

      3. the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of the Supplier;
      4. the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
      5. the Goods differ from the Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
    4. Except as provided in this clause 5, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods' failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1.

THE WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 5.1 IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

  1. Title and risk
    1. Supplier’s responsibility ceases, and risk of loss passes upon delivery of the Goods to the Customer. 
    2.  Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the earlier of:
      1. The Supplier receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods and any other goods that the Supplier has supplied to the Customer in respect of which payment has become due, in which case title to the Goods shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums; and
      2. The Customer resells the Goods, in which case the title to the Goods shall pass to the Customer at the time specified in clause 6.4.
    3.  Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
      1. store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier's property;
      2. not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
      3. maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;
      4. notify the Supplier immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.1; and
      5. give the Supplier such information relating to the Goods as the Supplier may require from time to time.
    4.  Subject to clause 6.5, the Customer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before the Supplier receives payment for the Goods. However, if the Customer resells the Goods before that time:
      1. It does so as principal and not as the Supplier’s agent; and
      2. Title to the Goods shall pass from the Supplier to the Customer immediately before the time at which resale by the Customer occurs.
    5.  If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.1, then, without limiting any other right or remedy, the Supplier may have:
      1. The Customer's right to resell the Goods or use them in the ordinary course of its business ceases immediately; and
      2.  The Supplier may at any time:
        1. Require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession that have not been resold or irrevocably incorporated into another product; and
        2. If the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.
  2.  Price and payment
    1. The price of the Goods shall be the price set out in the quotation, or, if no price is quoted, the price set out in the Supplier's published price list in force as at the date of delivery.
    2.  The Supplier may, by giving notice to the Customer at any time up to 7 Business Days before delivery, increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost of the Goods that is due to:
      1. any factor beyond the Supplier's control (including foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes and duties, and increases in labor, materials and other manufacturing costs);
      2. any request by the Customer to change the delivery date(s), quantities or types of Goods ordered, or the Specification; or
      3. Any delay caused by any instructions of the Customer or failure of the Customer to give the Supplier adequate or accurate information or instructions.
    3.  The price of the Goods:
      1. Excludes any sales tax required to be collected, for which the Customer shall be responsible; and
      2. Excludes the costs and charges of packaging, insurance and transport of the Goods, which shall be invoiced to the Customer.
    4. If Customer qualifies for any lawful exemption from any sales tax imposed by applicable law, Customer shall provide Supplier with an exemption certificate or other documentation satisfactory to Supplier to establish Customer’s exemption.
    5. The Supplier may invoice the Customer for the Goods before, on or at any time after the completion of delivery.
    6. The Customer shall pay the invoice in full within 30 days end of month following the date of the invoice. This outlines our Standard Payment Terms. Payment shall be made to the bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier. Time for payment is of the essence.
    7. If the Customer fails to make any payment due to the Supplier under the Contract by the due date for payment, then the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 18% per annum or the maximum legal rate if lower. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
    8. The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). The Supplier may, at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by the Supplier to the Customer.
    9. The Customer shall make payment in full in accordance with our standard payment terms as outlined in section 7.6 of this document. If the Customer wishes to request extended payment terms, the Customer shall submit a written application to the Supplier, providing all requested information in a timely manner.  The Supplier reserves the sole and absolute right to approve or deny any application for extended payment terms. The Supplier may, at its discretion, modify or rescind any previously approved extended payment terms at any time, without prior notice or liability.  In the event of any default by the Customer, including but not limited to non-payment within the extended payment terms, the Supplier shall have the right to immediately revoke the extended payment terms, and all outstanding amounts shall become immediately due and payable in full, without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to the Supplier.
