We've lost count of the number of customers who phone asking if we have dog/cat/child-proof fabrics ! The simple answer is that no such fabric exists - however, all is not lost!
We have a huge selection of fabrics which will pretty much withstand anything that your brood can throw at them. Whilst we can't guarantee that a sustained attack by a determined Jack Russell will be indefinitely repelled, we can say that providing you make the right fabric choice you can be assured of a long and happy relationship between your sofa and your little ones!
The golden rule is to avoid fabrics which have a loop weave construction, or put another way, any yarns which are susceptible to snagging or pulling. For this reason velvets are perfect as they have a cut pile - so are tightly woven chenilles.
We have nearly 400 fabrics to choose from - many are machine washable for extra peace of mind. All are easy care and can be wiped down with a damp sponge as required.
We strongly advise clients to visit our fabric finder section - this will help you find your perfect fabric in seconds!
All Modelli upholstery fabrics are flame retardant as standard and undergo the most rigorous testing both prior to and after launching to ensure total compliance to British Standards. Every upholstery fabric we sell can be used for any domestic upholstery and soft furnishing purpose. Many are machine washable and suitable for contract use.
We have an extensive selection of easycare, machine washable velvet, chenille and microfibre upholstery fabric and sofa fabrics. Choose from the following collections - ASSISI, BRESCIA, ENZO, IMOLA, LIVORNO, LUCCA, MESSINA, MILAN, ONDA, PALERMO, PARMA, SPERANZA, TOSCANA.
Even with such a comprehensive upholstery fabric and accessory collection it is always feasible that we won't quite have what you are looking for!
Maybe you need a special size of handmade cushion, ottoman or footstool - perhaps a window seat cushion or set of chair pads - whatever it is we will be happy to quote for any custom project you have. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will come straight back to you!
