Velvet upholstery fabric is durable and strong which makes it perfect for upholstering chairs, sofas, and benches.
Cotton velvet by JB Martin comes in two varieties made with 100% cotton pile. Como velvet is very durable with 150,000 double rubs. Cannes velvet is similar to Como velvet but is not as durable and has a slub weave giving it a different texture.
Micro velvet, such as Bella velvet and Crypton Home, is 100% polyester with a woven backing. Micro velvet upholstery fabrics are very durable with 100,000 to 200,000 double rubs.
Crushed flocked velvet has a wrinkled texture that is fuzzy and soft. This velvet is great to use to give a piece of furniture more dimension. It’s also used for auto interiors, lining for music cases, jewelry packaging, and displays.
JB Martin Nevada Mohair Velvet is 100% mohair (angora goat hair) pile and has a rougher texture than other velvets.
