Does the upholsterer a mile away have a thousand fabrics at his or her disposal to offer to you? Probably not, but web retail stores do because they can work directly with many large and small fabric manufacturers to bring you 1000 fabric choices every day in simple prints, twill fabrics, complex and elegant designs, and intricately woven fabrics. Upholstery fabrics comprise about 25% to 40% of the offerings, in a variety of price categories.
These are not fabric mills, that actually weave the fabrics, but custom shops located all over the United States, where sewing workers are paid living wages with good working conditions and real health coverage! They market their fabrics through web retailers like futon cover businesses, who are already in the business of offering well-sewn and constructed fabric products.
Choosing a fabric is important as you need to consider not only the colour but the texture and feel of it. It needs to be comfortable, yet durable. Some fabrics require more care than others so make sure you know what you need to do to look after your couch before you bring it home. If you are a young family with small children and pets you may want to choose a durable, heavy duty fabric.
