What is Upholstery Fabric For Chairs?

Reupholstering a chair is a home DIY project that can be taken up by even a novice. Upholstery is the art of providing furniture, most commonly chairs, with the soft parts of the furnishings; padding, springs, webbing and covers. Reupholstering a chair is simply re-doing that part, often just the fabric (although some people will opt to bulk out, or change the padding at the same time). When choosing a chair fabric, you want one that is going to be able to stand up to being sat on, and stood up from, day in day out for years to come. All of our hand picked chair fabrics have been Martindale rub tested, and are proven durable fabrics. 

What a Martindale Rub Test is

The Martindale rub test is done to find out the durability of a fabric. It involves the fabric being repeatedly rubbed in a circular motion with a very abrasive material, such as wire mesh. This is done over and over, until the fabric has a noticeable difference in it's appearance or when two yarns break. The oscillations are counted, and this determines whether or not a fabric is considered durable.


Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Modern, digital techniques

All printable fabrics are digitally printed in our studio in permanent full color print with your personalized design. You have a choice of finishing options for your custom made chair fabric. Have your chair upholstery fabric sent out as it comes from the printer, with a white edging, or cut on the line with the white border removed by one of our experts. You may want to have your chair fabric hemmed. One of our seamstresses can hem your material with either an overlock hem or a folded hem, in either black or white thread.
