Fabric varieties are presented to users with great care. Whether you are looking for home textiles suitable for your home decoration or meter fabrics for your special projects, the wide range of fabrics meets every need. From the various uses of fabrics to quality indicators, from healthy fabric types to accurate measurement techniques, many details stand out. Choosing fabrics to complement the aesthetics of your home or workplace makes spaces more inviting and comfortable. Diversity offers options suitable for different styles and needs.

Fabric choices are not limited to aesthetics; functionality is also of great importance. For example, stain-resistant and easy-to-clean fabric types can be preferred for places that require intensive use such as children's rooms and dining areas. Products are developed using durable and long-lasting materials to meet such needs. The products are designed to facilitate the lives of users and closely follow the decoration fashion with frequently renewed collections.

Another important factor to consider when choosing the type of fabric you will use in your home decoration projects is light transmittance. Considering the amount of natural light the space will receive, especially when choosing curtains and upholstery fabrics, will help you optimise energy efficiency and lighting costs.

Choosing the right fabric can also help prevent allergies and other health conditions. For example, anti-allergenic fabric varieties reduce the risk of allergies while at the same time allowing dust and dirt to be easily removed. This approach offers modern home textile solutions that prioritise sustainability and user health.

Another important aspect is that the fabric is easy to maintain. Fabric types offer easy-to-clean and practical maintenance options. It saves time especially for individuals with a busy lifestyle. It also extends the service life of the fabric and offers economic benefits in the long term.

Fabric and textile products are produced with carefully selected materials and advanced technology to meet the expectations of users. Among the products, you can find decorative and functional solutions suitable for every corner of your home. Whether you have a modern or traditional decoration style, the fabric collection offers a variety of designs for every taste.

Timeless fabric models

Timeless fabric models attract attention with their upholstery, decorative and functional products that adapt to every period. Especially viscose fabric and polyester fabric options stand out with their durability and aesthetic structures. These fabrics easily adapt to innovations in the world of fashion and decoration, creating a timeless elegance in your spaces. Viscose fabric has a wide range of uses from clothing to home textiles with its soft texture. Viscose, which is especially preferred in summer clothes, is known for its breathable structure and provides comfort in hot weather conditions. On the other hand, polyester fabric is frequently used in sportswear and outdoor textiles due to its flexibility and long-lasting structure.

The fabrics also offer a rich choice of colours and patterns. From minimal patterns to vibrant prints, the timeless fabric collection has something for every style. Fabrics provide versatile use in homes and workplaces not only with their appearance but also with their functional properties. For example, scuba fabric can be preferred in office environments, hotel lobbies or other busy areas thanks to its durable structure. Scuba is known for its largely non-deformable structures and is ideal for environments that require intensive use.

Timelessness not only adapts to fashion and trends, but also overlaps with the understanding of sustainability. Natural fabric options such as linen fabric and muslin fabric, which are produced with environmental awareness, are also offered. While linen is known for its durability and environmentally friendly properties, muslin fabric has a light and soft structure that is especially preferred in baby products.

Usage areas of fabrics

Fabrics have different usage areas. Upholstery fabric types are ideal for armchairs, sofas and other furniture coverings with their durability and comfort. At the same time, options such as crepe fabric and scuba fabric are often preferred for curtains and decorative covers thanks to their lightness and easy-to-shape structures. Synthetic options such as viscose fabric and polyester fabric in the fabric collections are designed especially for the different needs of indoor and outdoor areas. These fabrics are known for their superior resistance to moisture and temperature. Viscose fabric, for example, is characterised by its soft texture and silky lustre, making it an ideal choice for luxury decorations.

Polyester fabric was particularly favoured in frequently used areas thanks to its easy care and washability. It has a wide range of uses from indoor seat covers to outdoor cushions. It is especially preferred for folding curtains and panel curtains that offer functional and aesthetic features together. In addition, natural fabric types such as muslin fabric and linen fabric are preferred because of their breathable structure, providing coolness on summer days and lightness. Such fabrics are often used in baby rooms and bedrooms because their soft texture and natural composition soothe the skin and minimise allergic reactions.

Special fabric types are also offered for special occasions and seasonal decorations. For example, thematic fabrics designed for use during the holiday season allow you to decorate your home in a unique way at this special time of year. These fabrics are usually designed with vibrant colours and striking patterns, thus creating an energetic atmosphere. For events and gatherings, dark and heavily textured fabrics can be used to create a more formal and sophisticated look. Such fabrics are ideal for creating a sense of weight and seriousness in the space.

Fabrics designed for outdoor use include those that are resistant to sunlight and water. These fabrics are often used to cover furniture in terraces, gardens and other outdoor areas. Water-resistant fabrics are an excellent choice, especially for furniture used in swimming pools and seaside houses. Such fabrics undergo special treatments that prevent the colours from fading in areas exposed to intense sunlight.

Fabrics with different stitching and workmanship techniques are available in different textures and characteristics, which increases the possibilities of their use in interior design. For example, jacquard and tapestry fabric types have more detailed and flamboyant patterns and are often used for decorative purposes in luxurious living rooms or important open spaces.

How to recognise quality fabric?

The signs of a quality fabric can be recognised by its texture, durability and texture consistency. This makes the products long-lasting and healthy. Quality fabrics also make a difference with their rich colour and pattern options. High quality ensures that the vibrancy of colours and the clarity of patterns are preserved for a long time, so that the fabrics remain as the first day for years.

Another important factor to consider when choosing quality fabrics is whether the fabric is environmentally friendly. It is important that you prefer to use fabrics from sustainable sources. This both contributes to the conservation of natural resources and minimises the risk of allergies. In particular, organic fabric types are an important step towards reducing environmental impact.

Knowing how to recognise a quality fabric also requires an understanding of the processes through which the fabric is made. For example, the density of the yarns and weaving techniques are important factors that determine the wear and tear resistance of the fabric. The production processes of polyester fabric and viscose fabric increase the durability and lifetime of the fabrics.

Fabrics also offer easy maintenance. Stain-resistant, easy-to-clean fabrics are ideal for daily use. These features provide a great advantage especially for home textile products and sofa covers. Choosing long-lasting and high quality fabrics is also economically advantageous. Although it may initially seem more costly, it reduces the total cost as it reduces the need for replacement and renewal in the long term.

What kind of fabric should be preferred for armchairs and sofas?

The type of fabric to be chosen for armchairs and sofas varies according to their intended use and frequency. For example, heavy upholstery fabric is preferred for intensive use areas, while lighter options such as viscose fabric or polyester fabric may be suitable for less used areas. Various sofa covers also facilitate your fabric choices. The colour and pattern of the fabric you choose for your armchairs and sofas should match the general decoration of the space.

Fabric types that should be preferred according to the conditions of use also stand out with their functionality. For example, it is ideal to use easy-to-clean, stain-resistant scuba fabric in homes with children. These fabric types, which can be easily wiped off in light soiling, offer practical solutions for families. Thin and lightweight fabrics may be more suitable for areas such as guest rooms that are used less intensively. It is also important to choose fabrics that can harmonise with sewing accessories.

In the search for a durable and long-lasting sofa fabric, natural fabrics such as linen fabric and muslin fabric are recommended. Since these fabrics are made of natural fibres, they do not cause allergies and do not irritate the skin when in contact with the skin. While linen is known for its high durability, muslin fabric stands out with its lightness and soft texture.

Seasonal conditions should also be taken into account when choosing fabrics for armchairs and sofas. Cooler fabrics offer ideal options for the summer months, while thicker and warmer fabrics provide more comfort in winter. When choosing the most suitable fabric, the frequency of use of the space and the wear potential on the furniture should also be taken into consideration. For example, heavier upholstery fabrics are recommended for high-traffic areas, while lighter and aesthetic fabrics may be preferred for less used and more decorative areas.

Which fabric types are healthy to use?

With an approach that prioritises human health, linen fabric and muslin fabric, which are among the fabric choices, are produced from natural fibres. Since these fabrics are produced without chemical treatment, they do not cause any harmful reaction when they come into contact with the skin. Choosing healthy fabrics is especially important for allergy-prone individuals and children.

Natural fabrics are characterised by their breathability and ability to absorb moisture in a balanced way. For example, linen fabric helps regulate body temperature naturally by providing coolness on hot summer days. Similarly, muslin fabric, with its lightness and soft texture, is especially preferred in baby wear and bed textiles.

Products using healthy fabrics also have high standards in terms of washability and durability. It draws attention with its colour preservation features in bed textile products produced using such fabrics and in products that require frequent washing. These features ensure long life of the products and reduce the need for frequent replacement. Especially biodegradable linen and muslin fabrics that do not cause environmental pollution aim to protect the ecological balance.

How to measure fabric?

Calculations should be made correctly when taking fabric measurements. It is important to take precise fabric measurements especially in the production of pillow and cushions. The first step in taking accurate fabric measurements is to determine the total amount of fabric required for your needs. For example, if you want to sew a curtain, the width of your window and the desired curtain length determine how many metres of fabric you need. Another important point is to consider the width of the fabric. Fabrics usually have a specific width dimension and must be calculated so that seam allowances or patterns match correctly. For example, if you want to add seam allowances or match patterns, you may need extra fabric.

Depending on the type of fabric, care should be taken when measuring. If you are using a stretch scuba fabric, you may need to take more precise measurements, taking into account the fabric's stretch properties. Another thing to consider when buying fabric is the shrinkage allowance. Many fabrics may shrink a little on the first wash, so it is recommended that you wash the fabric before starting your project.

Taking fabric measurements is critical to ensuring that your needs can be met. Accurate measurements allow you to keep costs under control and achieve the desired result. You can choose IKEA to discover a wide range of fabric options and get more information about the designs that suit your needs.
