This gives Flock velvet surface. Flock meets the basic requirements that apply to furniture fabrics. The look is very decent. Flocks withstand all conditions, processed dirt and water-repellent.
1. Cleaning may be the most common cleaning agents, water-based.

Jacquard-rayon. Several dozen brushes, running in different directions and at different angles, create a detailed picture selected. No wonder the jacquard machine called an outstanding human invention. It was invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard in 1801. Basic principles of jacquard remained virtually unchanged, except for the increase in speed. The fabric is thick and tough. Twisted loop, tightening is not dissolved. Jacquards "breathe", they are hypoallergenic. If the jacquard fabrics used shenillovaya thread, these are called jacquard chenille fabric. Usually shenillovaya thread woven into the weft.
Care Jacquard: to remove dirt from the fabric dry cleaning is recommended. To remove dust cloth can be vacuumed. And dust can be removed with a sponge or soft brush.
1. When removing stains should not be rubbed. Use the easy-absorbent cloth or sponge.
2. Stains should never rub.
3. Never use a variety of tools pyatnovyvodyaschie simultaneously.
4. Until dry cloth to avoid any impact on the wetted area.
5. Dry the tissue in vivo.
Chenille («chenille») - in French "caterpillar." Shenillovaya yarn is created by weaving the villi between two strong threads that subsequently okruchivaet spiral. Outwardly, it looks like a hairy caterpillar, hence the name. Due to the structure of fuzzy fabric creates a nice effect the game in color. Fabric with a nap, soft, warm, creating comfort in the home. On the composition of raw materials may be monochromatic, say viscose or mixed: for example polyester viscose, cotton or acrylic. Chenille - very dense, durable and relatively expensive fashion fabric. On consumer qualities has high wear resistance, as it contains synthetic fibers. For environmental properties close to the tapestry, as it contains natural fibers.
Care Chenille: with this tissue most stains can be easily removed for cleaning products based on water or regular soap. Traces of lipstick and grease can be removed with a 3.6% aqueous solution of ammonia and water. Allowed gentle dusting preparations on perchlorethylene.
Velvet-pile type of tissue. There are different ways to create these fabrics. Basic, the most common way, when fleecy yarn interwoven with two warp threads. Think of this as a very tightly overlap to the letter «W». Thus, an increased strength and density of its velor cloth. Wide range of colors and unique design allows tissue to apply it to a large spectrum range of upholstered furniture.
Care velor fabrics: vacuuming with a soft brush. Washable up to 30 º C. A cleaning agent based on water. A short spin cycle (manual extraction undesirable). Does not require ironing.
Microfiber, is highly resistant to abrasion, it has a rich palette of vibrant colors. Quality microfiber is the best suited for furniture coverings. Not surprisingly, the microfiber cloth is called the Third Millennium: high mechanical strength (breaking strength), high resistance to abrasion (wear), resistance to peel (the formation of "pellets"), simplicity of care (a good clean cloth available means), look close to natural suede.
Care Microfiber: Fabric not rub, it does not tear, does not fade and does not fade, does not require special care. To remove dust and maintain silky luster material must be treated regularly vacuumed and cleaned with a dry sponge or a soft clothes brush.

Caring for suede furniture: contamination should be removed immediately. Wet the stain, you must first get wet a soft cloth to clean the pollution. After cleaning the spot can blow dry, keeping it at a distance from the fabric.

After years of research and laboratory tests failed to create a product that fully meets the requirements for use in the manufacture of furniture, clothing, shoes, etc. Due to its unique properties and unique structure of this material is unique. Arpatek soft, fine and noble. Similar to the natural material and feels like leather of the highest quality. Arpatek easy to clean, durable tear, resistant to mechanical and light effects, it keeps and maintains its color appearance. Composition: 42% viscose, 33% polyurethane, 25% cotton.
Fabric care Arpatek: arpatek easy to clean, it keeps and maintains its color appearance. It does not require constant care. For those who still want to take care of the material, there are special cleaners and care products.

NOTE: choosing upholstery fabric, the buyer must keep in mind that almost all material composition blended fibers are afraid of the abundance of direct sunlight.
