Upholstery fabric

Wool (and wool mixtures with PA/PES/Rami)

Wool is a protein fibre with many inherent natural properties - it is dirt and water repellent, antistatic and flame resistant.

Woollen upholstery fabric should be lightly vacuumed each week and cleaned more thoroughly at least once a year to maintain both its function and appearance. Woollen upholstery fabric can be dry cleaned.

Polyester and Trevira CS

Polyester is a synthetic fibre that is strong, which exhibits little shrinkage and little stretch.

Trevira is a trademark for polyester fibre with flame retardant properties built into the fibre. These flame retardants are halogen-free, and are bound in the fibre. The retardants do not leach out of the fabric during use or during washing.

Fabrics of polyester and Trevira CS are easy to wash. Removable covers can be washed gently at 60 degrees, or dry cleaned. Wash them separately inside out and with any zips closed. Centrifuge gently and be careful not to overload the washing machine. Loose upholstery can be ironed on medium heat.

Hanging textiles

Organic cotton and linen

Cotton and linen are plant fibres, both of which carry a natural variation in colour and texture, and both are antistatic. A curtain fabric of cotton and linen is susceptible to breaks in its folds and can crease easily. Therefore it must be handled with care.

Svensson hanging fabrics can be washed gently at 40 degrees. Wash them separately and be careful not to overload the washing machine. Hang dry and iron on medium heat or steam before hanging them.

Solar control

Polyester and Trevira CS (and mixtures with aluminium)

Polyester is a synthetic fibre that is strong, has little shrinkage and little stretch. Trevira is a trademark for polyester fibre with flame retardant properties built into the fibre. These flame retardants are halogen-free and are bound in the fibre. The retardants do not leach out of the fabric during use or during washing.

Aluminium is a metal with reflective properties. Our fabrics contain less than 1% aluminium in a structure that protects the reflecting surface against external influences.

A stiff sunshade of polyester, Trevira CS and mixtures containing aluminium can be wiped with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Stiff fabrics are sensitive to breakage of its creases and must therefore be handled with care.

All fabrics that are washable have a shrinkage of 2% unless otherwise stated – remember this when engaging in sewing.

Textile is a living material, and differences in shade, weight, shrink and grip between batches that is within the tolerance of the quality we stand for, may occur. Based on what you expected if this does not correspond to our textiles, please contact one of our sales representatives.
