Under the microscope: pairing fibre characteristics to interiors

Under the microscope: pairing fibre characteristics to interiors

Selecting the type of fibre for your upholstery and drapery can be a complex and overwhelming task. Initially, we tend to place more importance on the aesthetics of fabric such as colour, texture and pattern, without much deliberation on the characteristics of the fibre. While the aesthetics are of course a significant part in the final decision, also considering the fibres’ inherent qualities can greatly add to not only the desired feel of your interior, but the durability of your furnishings long term. Here, we provide you with a brief overview on the characteristics of natural vs synthetic fibres and their response to humidity, light exposure and care. Additionally, this resource will assist you in the process of evaluating the environmental conditions of your interior for best fabric selection.
