WHAT IS BURL WOOD? 

Burl is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a unique manner. No burl wood piece is ever the same!

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY OYSTER CREEK COLLECTION PIECE?  

For both high gloss paint and burl wood finishes, clean and dust with a dry, soft microfiber cloth. If spills occur, clean the spill with a damp cloth and be sure to dry the area completely after clean-up. Avoid the use of cleaners that contain chemicals that may tarnish or damage the finish. Always avoid placing hot items directly on the surface of your purchase.   

Oyster Creek Collection fabrics are not guaranteed against natural wear, abrasion, stretch, shrinkage, fading, or dye-lot variation.     

For more specific information regarding fabric care, please review the section of the Care Guide which applies to your specific fabric selection.  

WHAT IS PERFORMANCE FABRIC? 

The term “performance fabric” refers to any specialty fabric that is designed to specifically withstand wear and tear while being simple to clean. The overall concept for performance fabric is longevity and simplicity. However, no fabric is 100% indestructible nor 100% stain resistant. Oyster Creek Studios strives to use performance fabrics throughout a majority of design projects for clients.
