Our Fabrics

We import high quality upholstery fabrics from all over the world. How do we measure the standard of quality? With something called a “Wyzenbeek score.”

Check out this video which shows a Wyzenbeek Abrasion Tester machine running the double-rub test on a sample of fabric.

For furniture in daily use, we recommend fabric with a Wyzenbeek score of at least 20,000. Furniture for commercial environments with heavy-duty usage, should be covered in fabric with a much higher Wyzenbeek score.

Of course, how it wears is one thing – how it looks is another! We have hundreds of samples available for your viewing in our showroom. Or if you can’t make it in to see us, check out the ranges from some of our many suppliers below for some inspiration.

The videos below show how our suppliers test the strength of fabric. The Martindale test is the most commonly used.
