When supplying your own fabric, please make sure the material is suitable for loose covers, your supplier will confirm, or contact us for advice.

Cloth with velvet pile and heavy glazing  does not make for good loose covers. Please call for advice,  before purchasing any unusual fabric.

Printed and embossed fabrics,  lend themselves well to loose covers,  as the rigors of  every day use will be less noticeable.
