Abrasion Resistance

As a furniture manufacturer, we receive many questions about fabrics. Although we do not weave any yarns or sell fabrics, many buying our furniture have looked to us to consult them on their fabric choices. So, we have done our best to learn all we can about these fabrics and share that information with our users. From time to time, we will post fabric tips on our blog to help educate our users so they can make the best choices for their situation.
