Velvet Upholstery Fabric
Depending on the direction that you look at a velvet, it can look a different shade due to the reflection of light. The direction is very important when used for upholstery due to the use and wear. Please, always seek the advice of an upholsterer before commencement of work.
We sell both fire retardant fabrics and fabrics that are not fire retardant. Some fabrics, whilst being suitable for upholstery with regards to fabric weight, it may require treating to the relevant British Safety Standard if you are to use your chosen fabric to cover furniture or other items in the home. Alternatively you could use a flame retardant barrier cloth with your chosen fabric when doing upholstery.
We always recommend that you dry clean our velvet upholstery fabrics at a specialist velvet dry cleaners.
All our velvet fabrics are available both online and in store from our fabric warehouse in Northamptonshire.
