Cream boucle coating fabric

Although this may not seem like one of the most obvious choices for an upholstery project, our cream boucle fabric has recently become a very popular option for furnishing projects. This super-soft and thick material is often used in dressmaking for oversized teddy bear coats but can also be used to transform your furniture into something even more special.

Cotton fabric 

As one of the most commonly used fabrics in the world, cotton is not only great for dressmaking but upholstery projects too. For garments, cotton is often the go-to choice for dresses, skirts, tops and loungewear - just to name a few uses - and is considered one of the most durable choices you can make in terms of materials. This durable, natural fabric is widely available across our website and comes in a variety of styles and textures, including plains and printed cotton. In terms of upholstery, cotton can be used to truly transform your furniture and provides good resistance to wear, fading, and pilling.

Velvet fabric

Velvet is often considered a wonderful alternative to more traditional fabrics when it comes to dressmaking and is the ideal material for a dress or top. As well as being used for creating garments, velvet is a great option for various furniture projects. Upholstery is often its most popular purpose within the home, so whether your choice of colour is muted, such as a darker red, or vibrant, such as with a much brighter yellow, you can be sure that this is a material which will stand the test of time. Here at Fabrics Galore, our velvet fabrics are very high quality, available in a variety of colours and patterns - the perfect choice for any special furnishing projects you are looking to work on.

Linen fabric

Linen is not only a very popular fabric for dressmaking but also regularly makes an appearance in home decor. This is a classic upholstery fabric which stands the test of time is normally blended with other natural fibres to reduce wrinkling. When used on a sofa or chair, the finish looks truly beautiful and is a more affordable fabric for anyone who is looking to achieve an up-market finish. Linen is also fairly resistant to fading and pilling, but we would recommend only using this fabric in more informal areas of your home as it can be prone to wrinkle over time. In general, linen is a brilliant choice if you want a sustainable fabric for your furniture.
