Polyester

All of our polyester fabrics are OEKO-TEX™ certified and several feature the EU Ecolabel which testifies to high quality. Polyester, which is used to manufacture our various fabrics, is usually recycled for use in insulation or as a filling in your sofa, and this gives our polyester an extra sustainable dimension. Furthermore, our numerous polyester fabrics are completely free of dangerous chemicals, heavy metals and carcinogens, and are characterised by being extremely resistant, versatile and durable materials.

Polyester and nylon fibres are generally durable and easy to maintain. Always start by impregnating your furniture before you start using it to give it the best conditions. Artificial fibres don't fade as much as cotton, which is why we recommend polyester for homes where life is lived to the edge and sometimes beyond.

Martindale, pilling and light fastness

Martindale, pilling and light fastness inform you about a fabric's durability. We use them to make it easy for you to see which is the right kind of furniture upholstery for you and your needs.

Martindale

measures the abrasion resistance of a fabric and ranges from 10,000-120,000, with 120,000 being the highest abrasion resistance. As a rule of thumb, the abrasion resistance for hard wear should be above 20,000, but in daily use an abrasion resistance of up to 10,000 is more than enough. The abrasion resistance of our selected upholstery fabrics ranges from 20,000 and up to 120,000 martindale. Substances with a martindale above 80,000 are suitable for using in public places, such as airports, lobbies and suchlike.

Pilling

is the term for the small balls of fabric that form on the surface of a fabric as a result of friction and which give the fabric a slightly furry appearance. There will always be some natural pilling at the beginning until the excess fibres have gone. Pilling is evaluated on a scale of 1-5, indicating the risk of pilling or loose fibres. 5 is best and our furniture upholsteries are always at least 3.
The fastest and cheapest way to remove pilling is by using a small electric razor designed for this purpose. A pilling comb is also effective and can help just as much as a razor.

Light fastness

describes a cover's ability to withstand sunlight. Nylon and cotton usually have a low light fastness, while wool, acrylic and polyester have a higher light fastness. The scale is a doubling scale, which ranges from 1-8, where 8 is highest and best. The higher the light fastness, the better the cover is at withstanding sunlight without losing colour. However, it is generally a good idea to keep furniture away from direct sunlight. Some covers will fade faster than others, indicated by the light fastness. We recommend that you don't choose a cover with a light fastness below 3. Synthetic fibres also have a higher light fastness than, for example, natural fibres.
