At Duresta we feature natural fibres, synthetic fibres, and combinations of both across our fabric collections. Natural fibre fabrics tend to have more knots, slubs, and irregularities. These qualities should not be regarded as flaws, but instead inherent characteristics of our beautiful natural fabrics. To comply with fire regulations some of our fabrics have a back coating applied, this may affect their drape and handle. Please be mindful that some fabrics will perform differently across different seat interiors, this may alter your seating experience.
Most of our fabrics are suitable for general domestic use; meaning they pass British standards for fire regulations and performance testing. Some fabrics are only available for use on occasional chairs, footstools, scatter cushions, and/or piping. The suitable use for each fabric is clearly indicated on request, on the reverse of your fabric sample and the swatch in store.
