Type of Fabrics for your Upholstery

Upholstery Fabric Glendale has a comprehensive collection of furniture upholstery fabric for any home or work.

Choose your upholstery fabric wisely. Is it cotton, linen, wool, or something else? Each type of yarn has its unique properties, which will affect the longevity and durability of your furniture piece.

Natural Fabrics

Some popular natural upholstery fabrics are cotton, silk, wool, leather, and linen. They have a soft feel that is great for comfort over performance-based quality.

When sourcing natural fibers such as cotton and linen, quality is the key when considering longevity.  These two materials are known for their breathability, making them ideal choices if there’s any concern about allergies.

Cotton is the number one choice and the most widely-used natural fibers that are both cheap and comfortable. It provides a soft feel on furniture but also has excellent durability. Cotton has been around since ancient times but recently replaced by synthetic alternatives because its durability decreases over time while requiring regular cleaning.

Cotton offers breathability because fibers are hollow, open tubes with spaces in between them. Whereas polyester fabrics have closed cells, meaning they trap moisture inside, leading them to mildew growth.


Linen was used throughout history until the 16th century due to its strength.

Linen is the known best fabric to use in adult-only rooms because of its durability and affordability. It comes with excellent print, and these intricate designs make it a great choice over other fabrics. But linen can shrink after washing. It can also wrinkle or stain easily. So be sure to have it professionally cleaned if you want your design intact without any changes.


It’s a luxurious choice for those who want the softness of fabric but do not mind spending more. However, this type of upholstery needs professional cleaning, as it can easily stain from spills and other messes that may occur in homes with families or pets.


It is tough and durable, making it perfect for high-traffic areas. Its only downside is, if it gets wet, it leaves an unpleasant odor that is difficult to remove afterward.


Leather is a perfect choice for upholstery because it looks professional, lasts long with light maintenance, and is easy to clean. It’s easy to clean hair and other dirt with a vacuum cleaner. Also, if you have pets in the house, leather will hold up well while looking great!

Upholstery Fabric Glendale has a wide range of natural fabrics with different designs, including print, solid, check, and stripe that you can choose according to your choice. Please visit our online store today for more help!!!

Synthetic Fabrics

These type of fabrics are known for their durability and ability to be cleaned at a lower cost than natural fabric. Synthetics consist of multiple fibers synthesized from chemicals or natural sources, woven into layers, then sewn together in the final product. Some examples include polyester, nylon, acrylic, olefin, ad rayon.


Polyester is a perfect fabric to blend with cotton because it adds wrinkle protection and retains dyes. It was the earlier choice for use in outdoor upholstery due to its durability. So you can expect your sofa or chair will stay looking fresh longer than other fabrics like silk which tend to fade over time.

Polypropylene or Olefin

PP or polypropylene is know as the second most produced plastic. About all recycling plants in the United States can recycle this material, and it produces less waste by weight when compared to other plastics. You must have seen its impact on your life before on yogurt containers, water bottles, and tub ware!

Olefin is the most produced synthetic fiber after polyester. It is durable without protective stain treatments like Scotchgard. In fact, fluorochemicals from cleaners can break down certain fibers, so they should be avoided when cleaning!


It is another fiber that is usually mixed with other fibers to make fabrics like velvet and chenille. Nylon works perfectly for eliminating napping in these fabric types. But it’s susceptible to pilling and fades when exposed directly to sunlight.


Synthesized as imitation wool, it is the best choice for using as outdoor upholstery fabric. It is popular for its fade-resistant and resists wrinkling or soiling. But low-quality materials can cause pilling, making fabrics look worn over time.


Developed in the 1920s, Rayon was initially used to imitate cotton, linen, and silk. Today, it can be found in a wide variety of products, including clothing (e.g., pants), rugs, mats that are water-resistant or waterproof, upholstery fabrics for cars, packaging materials like rope fibers—the list goes on! However, despite its durability over time, this fiber is susceptible to wrinkling compared to other natural fibers such as wool or cashmere.
