Are swatches available?

Yes!  Up to three swatches (approximately 4”x5”) are mailed at no charge.  A complete set of swatches, which includes all patterns, may be purchased for $20 plus shipping.  Swatches are intended only for color and do not include the entire pattern.  If you need a large swatch, please email info@tracizeller.com for pricing and availability. 

Are your fabrics washable?

Yes!  Bubbly, Sparkler and Prep are printed on heavyweight cotton twill (8.5 oz.) and can be either washed on the gentle cycle and air-dried or dry-cleaned. 

Are Traci Zeller Textiles fabrics eco-friendly?

Traci chose to have her fabrics digitally printed in part because of the eco-friendly nature of the process.  Conventional manufacturing involves significant waste of fabric, ink, water and electricity.  Digital printing virtually eliminates that waste. 

Are Traci Zeller Textiles fabrics stain-repellant?  If so, is the stain repellant eco-friendly?

You can choose to have your fabrics pre-treated with MicroSeal repellant for a nominal extra charge per yard.  MicroSeal creates a flexible and invisible layer of protection against stains, sun fading and wear.  With its nanotechnology, MicroSeal will not change the texture or color of the fabrics.  MicroSeal is eco-friendly and California VOC-compliant.  It contains no fluorochemicals or PTFE Resin.  For more information about MicroSeal, please visit www.completeseal.com.   

How are Traci Zeller Textiles fabrics printed?

Traci Zeller Textiles are digitally printed with reactive dye.  Reactive dye penetrates the fibers of the fabric, which makes the colors richer, longer-lasting and able to withstand multiple washings.  

How is digital printing with reactive dye different than digital pigment printing?

Pigment printing does not penetrate the fibers of the fabric, but instead the color “sits” on top of the fabric.  Although pigment printing produces beautiful colors, fabrics are not as washable or color-fast as those fabrics digitally printed with reactive dye. 

What is the width of your fabric?

Bubbly, Sparkler and Prep are 58” wide. 

Are your fabrics suitable for upholstery?

Yes!  Bubbly, Sparkler and Prep are printed on heavyweight cotton twill (8.5 oz.), which is suitable for upholstery. 

Are your fabrics suitable for commercial use?

If you plan to use Traci Zeller Textiles in a commercial setting or need flame-retardant qualities, please inquire about additional post-treatments that can be applied to the fabric. 

What paint colors do you recommend to coordinate with the Carnival colorway?

Yellow is a “go-to” choice for rooms suitable to either boys or girls. Pratt & Lambert Yellow Quartz (14-3) and Glow of Gold (14-4) are two beautiful choices, with Yellow Quartz as the softer option. Of course, Traci loves all shades of turquoise. Both Richard’s Orleans Tune (0658) and Benjamin Moore Serenity (2055-60) are stunning!

What paint colors do you recommend to coordinate with the Sweet Pea colorway?

Traci loves the softness of Pratt & Lambert Half Light (29-2), Aloe (24-30) and Early Morn (24-3).

What paint colors do you recommend to coordinate with the Retro colorway?

Pratt & Lambert Winter Sky (24-4) and Cumulus (24-2) are lovely shades of blue. For a neutral wall, Pratt & Lambert Navajo (33-32) is a great choice.

What paint colors do you recommend to coordinate with the Pop colorway?

Benjamin Moore Country Pink (2001-60) and Pratt & Lambert Winter Sky (24-4) coordinate beautifully! For a subtler wall color, try Country Pink at 50% strength. Pratt & Lambert Blue Maritime (23-16) works well as an accent color or to paint furniture.

Do you sell fabrics direct to the trade?

Yes!  Trade discounts are available.  Please email info@tracizeller.com for more information on trade accounts.  You will need a copy of your resale license and company contact information.
