How to choose fabrics for your furniture


Fabric Groups Explained

Fabrics are categorised into different fabric groups depending on their suitability for different uses. Fabric groups also take in consideration flammability ratings, composition and durability. Our fabrics make the grade for schools, colleges and universities, providing inspirational designs and first-class performance.
