- Aug 21, 2020-

Many people love to choose a warm and beautiful fabric sofa for new house decoration, and the choice of fabric may not be very familiar to most people, but it is related to the future service life and effect, so here I can tell you about the main types of fabrics on the market.


The first is Chenille. This kind of sofa cover is more gorgeous, high-end, and rich in layers, rich in fluff, comfortable to the touch, will not be deformed, fade, and anti-static. But the price is more expensive. Generally, sofas using this fabric are used by some very high-end furniture brands.

The second type is cut pile. This fabric has a simple design and color, but the texture and layering are very good. There is a layer of fine fleece evenly distributed on the surface and does not shed hair (some sofa covers on the market may also use flocking, but the flocking surface layer of hair is through special equipment Transplanted on the bottom cloth will shed hair. Cut pile is on the cloth itself). It feels fine, skin-friendly, anti-static, does not deform or fade.

The third type is cotton and linen. It is made by blending 50% of cotton and hemp, which has the softness and comfort of cotton, and the hardness and layering of hemp. It is anti-static, not easy to deform when cleaned, not easy to wrinkle, pilling, does not irritate the skin, and has good elasticity and abrasion resistance. Low-carbon, environmentally friendly, and affordable.

The fourth type is flax. It is also a low-carbon and environmentally friendly material, with good air permeability, non-slip wear-resistant, anti-static, and has a sense of simplicity and nostalgia, with a distinct sense of hierarchy. However, the hand feels rough, and people with sensitive skin may feel irritated to the skin, and may deform and pick up the ball after washing. But it is affordable and is a very common sofa fabric.

The fifth type is pure cotton. Cotton feels very comfortable, soft, breathable, and moisture-absorbing. The overall feel is clean, simple, and not easy to pilling. The only concern is shrinkage. But the price is affordable.

The sixth type is technology cloth. It is a newly introduced material in recent years. It is also more common and popular on the market. It looks and feels like a leather sofa with a leather texture. Many people will mistake it for leather. But it is also easy to get dirty, but it feels easier to take care of than ordinary fabric sofas. If it is hygienic, use clean water with some soapy water to wring the towel dry as much as possible and wipe it. If a large area becomes dirty, it must be removed and cleaned. The color will change after a few cleanings and it will feel very old. It has a great price advantage and the price is very affordable.


In summary, chenille and cut velvet are high-end fabrics, which are more expensive; cotton and linen are moderately priced; linen and cotton are relatively affordable; technology cloth has a greater price advantage. When buying a sofa, it is best to understand the characteristics of fabric materials. If conditions permit, it is best not to choose materials that are prone to wrinkles, pilling, fading, or shrinking. You can ask the merchants about this, and I hope to give you some help in choosing a fabric sofa.
