What are the types of sofa fabrics

Hotel sofas are classified according to the composition of raw materials, including cotton, linen, and chemical fiber.


And there are many kinds of chemical fiber, including polyester, acrylic, viscose, rayon and so on. Many chemical fiber fabrics are mixed with several ingredients. As for silk and wool, they are very rare. I have been making sofas for more than ten years and have never touched it.


According to the dyeing method, there are dyed and yarn-dyed ones. Dyeing is to weave the fabric first, and then dye the color; for yarn-dyed weaving, dye the yarn with color first, and then weave the fabric. No matter what the composition of the cloth, it can be made into dyed cloth or yarn-dyed cloth. Generally, the monochromatic ones are basically dyed cloth, and the non-monochromatic ones are all yarn-dyed cloth.


According to the type of yarn, there are spun suede and chenille yarn.


Imitation suede is a kind of fabric that looks like suede. It is made of all-polyester and is currently on the market. Chenille yarn is a relatively thick yarn that looks hairy. The cloth woven from chenille is collectively called chenille. There are many kinds of ingredients, polyester and viscose can be made into chenille. This kind of cloth is thicker and has a rougher style. There are also more in the market.


The store tells you that the fabric composition of the hotel sofa is basically a mixture of various names, not according to a unified standard. Common ones are suede, chenille, yarn-dyed cloth, cotton cloth, and linen cloth. These fabrics are not good or bad, but each has different characteristics. According to the price, for fabrics of the same weight, polyester is the cheapest, cotton is more expensive, and linen is much more expensive. However, many yarn-dyed or chenille fabrics are heavier and thicker, so the price will be higher.


Different fabrics are suitable for different styles of sofas. Modern styles and sofas with a strong sense of line are more suitable for cotton or linen; the more classical styles use chenille and yarn-dyed fabrics. So when choosing a sofa, you don't have to choose which kind of cloth, but also the combination of fabric colors and styles.
