Fabric Care Guide

We strongly recommend regular care and cleaning of your fabric goods. Our advice is given in good faith and should not be considered a guarantee. If in any doubt, consult a professional upholstery cleaning company.

General care:

  • Vacuum regularly (weekly) using low suction & rotate reversible cushions regularly. Our sofas are made with reversible cushions to aids in the longevity of the fabric and fill.
  • Protect from direct sunlight. Constant exposure to direct sun light will break down fabric fibres causing them to become brittle.
  • When arranging your furniture, care should be taken to avoid touching external walls or radiators to prevent problems of moisture build up and/or scorching damage.
  • Take care to prevent sharp objects such as rings, buckles and pets’ claws from coming into contact with your furniture, as this may cause snagging or tearing of the fabric.
  • Pilling can occur as a result of normal daily wear and should not be considered as a fault.
  • Pilling can be successfully removed with battery operated pilling tools available from stores such as Harvey Norman.
  • Velvets; if you find that the corners of your velvet sofa are looking a bit crushed or just need a freshen up, a gentle steam will help to recover the pile.

Colour Fastness + Dye Transfer:

  • All fabrics are tested to industry standards. It is important to note that no fabric is 100% colour fast and that it is impossible to prevent colours fading if adequate precautions are not taken in the home.
  • Please ensure the correct product is chosen for your order and space. Please ask our team for more information on fabrics, we are happy to help.
  • We are not responsible for external dye transfers onto your upholstery fabric.

Fabric Cleaning:

This is our general fabric cleaning guide, however please always refer to your appropriate care label prior to any care and cleaning.

  • Professional cleaning recommended
  • Do not use dishwashing or laundry detergents – use only upholstery detergent. 
  • May be shampoo cleaned using upholstery shampoo.
  • Do not wet filling.
  • Dry in shade, away from direct heat and sunlight.
  • Gently vacuum to restore pile. Allow to dry thoroughly before reuse.
  • Spot cleaning; Treat spills and stains as soon as possible.
  • Test on hidden area to ensure fabric and colour are not removed.
  • Gently scrape any soil or mop any liquid from the surface of the fabric.
  • For non-oil-based stains use warm water. Blot dry with a clean towel. It is generally preferable to clean whole panels of fabric rather than trying to spot clean specific areas.
