KOTHEA was asked if linen velvet fabric can be used for upholstery.
Our 100% linen velvet has a Martindale of 20,000 ‘rubs’. So this is certainly suitable for domestic upholstery and also for light contract. As with all velvets a proper care regime should be in place to prolong the life of the fabric. Also check the Martindale figures of the specific fabric you intend to use as that test result is the most useful indication of suitability for upholstery.
