choose the right fabric for the job

Aside from choosing a design and colour that suits your upholstery requirements, selecting an appropriate fabric for your furniture is very important as not all fabrics are created equal.

Textile manufacturers are constantly searching for and developing new and innovative fabrics which suit our modern-day lifestyles. This includes fabrics which are hard-wearing, water-resistant, stain-resistant and easy to maintain.

FibreGuard is a trusted fabric quality label, which represents a convenient solution to carefree easy living. FibreGuard’s Stain Free Technology allows you to enjoy your sofa, or favourite armchair assured that it will be able to stand up to everyday stains. From ballpoint pen to coffee, mud, red wine, and ketchup, common household stains are easily removed allowing you to keep your fabric upholstered furniture looking fresh year after year.

It is also child and pet-friendly.

FibreGuard features a wide variety of fabric types, styles, and designs seamlessly combining technology and style.

The FibreGuard fabrics are green conscious – every FibreGuard fabric is Oekotex endorsed certifying that its fabrics are produced in a way that is safe for both the environment and humans – no harmful chemicals or finishes are released from this fabric.

FibreGuard fabrics are easy to clean:  if need be, remove the remaining stain with a teaspoon; apply water to the stain and blot using a white paper towel (do not rub in a circular motion). Repeat the process until the stain residue is no longer visible on the paper towel. Apply more water to the area (for stubborn stains, a normal household bar of soap may be necessary) and gently rub with a microfibre cloth, using circular movements for best results. Repeat the process until completely removed (when using soap, use intermittently). Allow the fabric to dry naturally. Do not apply heat.

FibreGuard fabrics are the ideal choice for our modern lifestyles.
