Shipping and Handling Rates
We do Not ship to Post Office Boxes
There is a 4% Handling fee on All orders NOT shipped on Pallets
This handling charge covers packaging materials and processing costs on our end to prepare your order for shipment. We must charge this 4% on orders that do not ship on pallets because it takes additional labor and materials to package rolls of fabric and other items so that they arrive in good condition when shipped via UPS, FEDEX, DHL or US Mail parcel services. We charge less handling (2% or less) on orders shipping by pallet because they require less packing material and labor to protect and secure the merchandise against damage in shipping. Additionally, we don't pay for pallets, as we always end up with more than we can use, thus again it is cheaper for us to ship on pallets, and we pass those savings onto our customers.
Please Note: Shipping prices are closely tied to fuel / Gas & Diesel prices. This affects the prices of everything, especially items that are heavy and bulky like Heavy Duty fabric and metal hardware.

A response to
customer inquiries regarding our products' adherence to:
MBDC's Cradle to Cradle (SM) program
We at American Home & Habitat Inc. Specialized Textile Outfitters applaud and support efforts to help improve the global environment and to promote environmental sustainability and recycling programs. We promote and carry a complete line of All Natural Cotton Canvas which is undyed, unbleached and untreated with chemical additives.
All synthetic Materials listed for sale on our website that are C2C certified will be duly noted on the individual product's web page.
Most of our Vinyl Composites and Rubberized materials and some other products that we carry contain Chlorinated Polymers and or Halogenated Hydrocarbons. These substances prevent materials that contain them from degrading and chemically breaking down when exposed to the elements such as UV (sunshine), microbes & bacteria, direct ground contact, water, mildew, oxidation etc.
These substances have been proven to prevent materials from decomposing when exposed to the elements in nature; sometimes for decades or longer.
Not all of our products are for every application.... If your environmental consciousness calls for a material that is environmentally sustainable (i.e. has short life cycle) allowing it to be quickly recycled back into nature, we carry a complete line of 100% cotton canvas, both 100%
unbleached and undyed that will surely not offend mother earth, peacefully returning to nature when no longer needed.
However, If your mission requirements demand a product that will last as long as possible, when exposed to harsh conditions, in situations where equipment failure can mean the difference between life and death; we carry a complete line of Specialized Materials, Vinyl Composites and Rubberized Materials designed to last as long as possible when exposed to the elements.
