Types of Fabric
LEATHER LOOK FABRIC (AIR-LEATHER)
Air Leather is a breathable fabric, for cool comfortable seating. That can be wiped clean with warm water. It's a heavy-duty textile making it highly resistant to everyday wear.
Chenille is a woven from natural or synthetic fibres. It's a soft, fury, velvety fabric that is used on most everyday fabric upholstery.
Velour is a velvet-like fabric heavy with a thick pile that lies in a single direction. Unlike velvet - it is a knit, which gives it some stretch.
Eco Fabric is a recycled leather textile, using an advanced process of layered Polyurethane coatings. It consists of a multi-layer PU top, which is backed with eco-friendly reconstituted hide using special adhesives that act as a catalyst to bind the top cover and the leather and give it additional strength and durability.
General Fabric care guidelines:
Avoid direct sunlight on upholstery fabric by controlling light with blinds, curtains or decorative throws.
Vacuum upholstery at least once per month
Use the soft brush in one direction to avoid damaging the fabric.
Use a crevice tool for corners and tight spots.
To ensure even wear and tear, rotate and re-arrange cushions as often as possible
Immediately blot liquid stains gently with a clean dry cloth to avoid stains from soaking in. Never use coloured paper towel or cloths as the colour may transfer onto the fabric!
in addition to vacuuming regularly, pet hair can easily be removed by using a clothes lint remover with a refillable sticky tape to pick up pet hair
Deep-clean upholstered furniture every 1-2 years, depending on the use
Commercial cleaning such as a professional steam clean is usually best.
