Three words that give you the best quality

Martindale, pilling and light fastness inform you about a fabric's durability. We use them to make it easy for you to see which kind of furniture fabric suits 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 normal daily use an abrasion resistance of up to 10,000 is more than enough. The abrasion resistance of our upholstery fabrics ranges from 20,000 and up to 120,000 martindale. Fabrics with a martindale above 80,000 are suitable for use in public places such as airports, restaurants and similar.

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 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 textile shaver designed for this purpose.

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 best. The higher the light fastness, the better the cover is at withstanding sunlight without losing colour. However, it is 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 an upholstery fabric with a light fastness below 3.

    • How to care for your wool upholstery

      We recommend that you impregnate your upholstery fabric to ensure it stays beautiful for years to come – and that you repeat the treatment a couple of times a year, or as needed. Our series of care products has been specially developed for our upholstery fabrics.

      Wool is easy to maintain – for general cleaning, we recommend regular vacuum cleaning with a soft furniture brush. It is natural for wool to form some minor wrinkles when used, as wool is a stretchy natural material. Find tips and tricks on how to care for and clean your sofa in our guide:
