Microfiber upholstery fabric, which has increased in popularity over the years, is a blend of polyester and polyamide. Upholstery fabrics can be used for arts and crafts. Olefin is a good choice for furniture that will receive heavy wear; however, it lacks the pliability and movement that natural fibers offer. Upholstery fabrics are designed to take more wear as they're usually a little more heavy and more durable than multi-purpose or drapery and curtain weight fabrics. Consider the style of your furniture as well as its function to help when choosing the type of upholstery fabric. Durability and use depend on the weave and finish. Damask weaves are formal; canvas (duck and sailcloth) is more casual and more durable. For a slightly retro or timelessly Scottish look, tartan plaid is another superb choice for seat or couch coverings. If comfort is at the top of your priority list, then chenille is the upholstery fabric for you. Jacquard's name comes from the type of weave used to produce the fabric. Vinyl (Poly Vinyl Chloride) is a manufactured thermoplastic fiber. Vinyl is noted for its strength and ability to resist weathering. Upholstery in high traffic areas or pieces subjected to daily heavy wear need to be covered in tough, durable, tightly woven upholstery fabrics. Polyurethane is a manmade organic polymer with high elongation and strength. Polyurethane is often used in elastic and plastic or vinyl like textiles. Damask can be made of cotton, silk or synthetic fabrics and is commonly used for drapery and upholstery. The nap (or hand) of chenille lasts forever. Chenille is soft to the touch and very popular as an upholstery fabric for sofas and chairs. Determine where your upholstered pieces will be used in the home before buying your upholstery fabric. Today velvet is available in both silk and cotton. Acrylic is a manufactured fiber made with synthetic materials. Acrylic may have the look of wool, cotton, or other fabric blends. It is colorfast, moth resistant, quick drying, and retains shape.
