How to properly take care of them?

Performance fabrics are highly durable fabrics often with the capability to resist stains and repel liquids. If you have small children or even pets, performance fabrics are the perfect protection and provide easy clean-up. Specific care instructions vary according to fabric types and manufacturers, but in general the process for cleaning a performance fabric is very simple with less than three steps.

Spilled your wine, coffee, fruit juice or something worse on your sofa?! Here’s what you do next:

  1. Use a paper towel or clean dry absorbent cloth to gently blot dry. The water-resistant and stain-resistant fabric prevents liquid from absorbing into the sofa. Instead, it beads up on the surface, making it easy to remove. In many instances, that is all you need!
  2. If blotting doesn’t completely take care of the liquid spill, then make a water-based soap mixture and gently blot the area to remove the liquid. Rinse the area thoroughly with a clean cloth. After that, it is done!

Washing Performance Fabrics with ordinary laundry detergents destroys their properties. Every fabric needs proper care to deliver maximum performance. With performance fabrics, an innovate solution surrounds each durable fiber to repel spills and deter stains. Plus, they are easy to clean when treated immediately. For light spills, simply clean with a wet towel. For tougher spills, use a mild soap and water mixture. Despite being constructed and tested to meet high standards, performance fabrics are soft to the touch and come in a variety of colors and patterns! They are perfect for any interior or exterior space since they are highly durable! Just check some of our amazing Performance Fabrics with different textures and patterns that will perfectly fit into any space!

Different performance fabrics have various characteristics. Some varieties of performance fabrics are capable of blocking harmful ultraviolet radiation, and they often have protection from ticks and mosquitoes, quick dry, temperature control and antimicrobial and anti-odor properties. Performance fabrics may also possess pilling-resistance, wrinkle resistance, and stain (water, dirt and oil) resistance, and be antistatic, self-cleaning and flame resistant. In some cases, they can be resistant to wind, heat and abrasion. Isn’t that awesome?

With unbelievable properties, Performance Fabrics actually surpass industry standards for performance to ensure years of faithful service, all without sacrificing beauty, softness or luxury! Come to our studio to check our collection of Performance Fabrics! We promise you are going to love them!
