Porter Teleo textiles are 52” - 58" wide and are sold by the yard, with a maximum piece size of 10 yards. Standard grounds are linen and silk. We can also source unique ground options and can paint on COM after we have tested it. In order to side match a pattern for textiles, designers may provide exact cut lengths for their project, allowing for no waste.
Once your order is placed, we will need a portion of your working sample as our color target. We then create the dye lot for the entire order and paint a sample for you - this is your Cutting for Approval/CFA. You can expect the CFA in approximately 2 weeks. Once your CFA is approved, standard production lead time is 8 weeks with 2 and 4 week rush options available for an additional fee.
Complimentary samples are available for customers with an active Trade Account. Samples vary in size depending on the scale of the pattern. Make sure you are logged in to your account, and simply add any samples you need to your cart! Sample orders placed before noon Central Standard Time will ship the same day via USPS First Class Mail. Rush delivery options are available if needed and can be added at checkout.

Durability & Maintenance
Porter Teleo textiles are hand painted and can display certain irregularities that are inherent to the process. They are not contract grade.
We offer an acrylic sealant that can be added during the checkout process. The sealant increases the durability and stain resistance of our textiles without changing the hand.
We recommend only gentle dry cleaning for our textiles. Typical dry cleaning techniques are harsher, and often uses a chemical called Perc, which we do not recommend.
how it's made
The hand painted patterns are individually made to order, panel by panel – never mass produced. Through the process of aesthetic judgments made by our highly trained team of studio artists, each composition is artistically produced – never created with stencils, digital printing, copying imagery or any manufactured techniques.
While each panel varies slightly, Porter Teleo’s mindful and meticulous process allows for continuity within the design. The patterns enliven the best interiors with a bold, distinctive color palette and a refined aesthetic.
