Sometimes we look at the design when choosing fabrics for the home but we do not take into account the importance of the quality of these. And it is that many people believe that all fabrics are good for everything, and it is not so. Not all fabrics are optimal for use in furniture upholstery, but there are fabrics that are special for this because before they go on sale, they go through analysis methods that determine their resistance. The most accepted and reference in the textile industry is the Martindale Test.
Surely many of you will be wondering what exactly it is and what the Martindale Test indicates.
This test is performed with the help of a machine consisting of several dishes in which fabric samples are placed. Each dish applies different degrees of abrasion to the fabric by movement following the Lissajous Figure. Depending on the number of cycles that the fabric resists, it is possible to know when the wear originates and what is the resistance and durability of the fabric.
All Texere synthetic fabrics and leathers ensure high durability and resistance to use, without neglecting the design, since all pass the Martindale Test and present acceptable results.
