What to look for when choosing a upholstery fabric?

The most important are the technical parameters and performance characteristics. The material to wrap the furniture must first be resistant to abrasion and fading. This is especially important for sofas and armchairs exposed to intense solar radiation.

Secondly, the upholstery fabric should not be meked over time. This is most often seen in products with a large admixture of synthetic fibres e.g. polyesters.

Thirdly, the material must be easy to clean. It is worth remembering that the upholstery fabric can not be simply removed and put in the washing machine. Therefore, it is very important to choose a product that will not cause much trouble in care. From a practical point of view, materials that do not absorb impurities and liquids are best.

When it comes to coloring, you can follow current trends or match the color to the character of your own interior.

What upholstery fabrics can you find in our warehouse?

Upholstery materials are produced using both natural and artificial fibres. The former are much more pleasant to the touch, but unfortunately less durable. Therefore, mixed products are the most popular, which combine all the most important characteristics. The appearance and durability of the product is determined by the weave, that is, the type of weaving. Below we present some of the upholstery fabrics you will find in our Fabric World online store:
