Webbing

Whether you are new to the world of upholstery or an old pro, one of the things that you will encounter frequently is webbing. Webbing is often found in sitting furniture (chairs and couches) as a functional foundation upon which cushions are placed. The purpose of webbing is to be flexible enough to provide a comfortable sitting area, but strong enough to provide a functional suspension.

 

Generally, there are four types of webbing used in upholstery:

  • Jute
  • Rubber
  • Polyolefin
  • Steel

Vinyl

We have a large variety of vinyl for interior, exterior, marine and automotive uses.

Vinyl is a form of plastic made from ethylene and chlorine. It is flexible, versatile, remarkably easy to clean and maintain, and fully recyclable. It is used in the upholstery industry as a type of mock leather that’s far cheaper than its genuine counterpart.

Genuine Leather

It’s a durable material that doesn’t attract and retain dirt and is easy to clean with a quick wipe of a damp cloth. As a natural fabric with pores, it offers advanced breathability and comfort in both hot and cold conditions.

Foams

We sell upholstery foam cut to size and standard-stock upholstery foam sheets (custom cut available) in a range of qualities and firmness.

 

Characteristics such as density, surface feel, surface firmness and firmness retention make a big difference in comfort and durability.

Upholstery Machines

Using upholstery sewing machines is similar to using a regular sewing machine, except an upholstery machine is much stronger and heavier than a regular machine. The large motor and drive-train allow it to have the power to sew thick materials.

Outdoor Fabric

Did you know that outdoor fabric differs from that used indoors?

Outdoor fabrics differ from indoor fabrics in that they are made to be more durable, and they undergo a chemical treatment process during manufacturing that ensures they will resist stains and mildew. Outdoor fabrics are woven fibers that differ in strength and durability.

Pillows and other soft furnishings used outdoors take more of a beating, so need to be more hard-wearing. When choosing an outdoor fabric, ask yourself whether the material is:

  • Fade-resistant
  • Sun-resistant
  • Weatherproof or weather-resistant
  • Machine washable

Upholstery Farbic

Upholstery fabric, which is milled specifically for use in covering and re-covering upholstered furniture, has a few characteristics that are peculiar to it; these characteristics set it apart from other fabric types. Upholstery fabric typically has a very thin, slightly sticky backing applied to the wrong side. In addition to keeping the threads of loose-weave fabrics together, this backing increases the adhesion of the fabric to the foam or padding of the upholstery and prevents the fabric from slipping and stretching.

Not washable, upholstery fabric is often not dry-cleanable; cleaning is accomplished with the use of solvents. The fiber content may be a blend of man-made and natural fibers, and it can have a commercial-grade stain-repellent solution applied to the surface. Upholstery fabric suited to outdoor use also may have UV inhibitors added to the fibers. The fabric may be solution-dyed, which means the dye is part of the fiber, as opposed to surface-dyed fabric, which is dyed after the fibers are spun.
