Fabic Care From Jingsentextile
The use of the fabric is so varied that it is difficult to give a hard quick suggestion as to how it might behave in different situations. Velvet, for example, can change its length by relaxing fibers in certain atmospheres. The longer and heavier the fabric, the final length may vary over a period of several weeks. Viscose and rayon can shrink or relax at different humidity. Lint may relax the weaving and may drop dramatically. Therefore, the curtain should have a large size hem, loose stitching, such as side seams. Any lining should also be slip-connected. This will allow any possible movement when the curtain is suspended. Alternatively, the length may be cut and hung over the railing, where the atmospheric conditions are the same as the locations at which the curtains will be suspended.
All fabrics will eventually fade, but if they are in direct sunlight, the dark dye will fade. Avoid dark colors on possible sunny windows and always use a good solprufe lining to protect the fabric. Keep furniture, use upholstery fabric, leave the sun.
All fabrics are prone to shrink, especially natural fabrics such as cotton and flax. Shrinkage of up to 6% should be permitted when making curtains and loose sleeves. Fabrics may also shrink due to dry cleaning. When manufacturing the loose sleeve, it is important to allow shrinkage. Tight fitting covers look the best, but keep in mind that loose covers will shrink after washing. Initial fit should allow up to 6% shrinkage.
Note that any accessories or trims used on cushions, etc. may shrink at different rates. In addition, it is important to use the correct cotton stitching as this can shrink at different speeds, damaging the appearance of the curtains or mats, and so on.
Most fabric companies recommend dry cleaning, it is important to follow the recommended care, otherwise the problem can not be dated at a later date. Most loose coverings are better dry-cleaned because there is less room for contraction and they come back to press and generally look better. However, some people like to wash mats, etc., especially where there are young families. It is possible to have a natural fabric, but it is best to first test a sample to check how the fabric may react.
If there is a pattern that repeats to the fabric, you choose to always make sure that the pattern is aligned with the curtain before you cut it in. Most of the pattern repeats meet the specifications given in the pattern book, but may occasionally change, especially for fabrics. Any company will not take responsibility for once the fabric is cut, so it is very important to check that you are happy with how the fabric widths are joined.
Please contact your supplier, first of all, the fabric of your choice is the correct cloth for the work you need. Fabrics used to cover furniture are typically subjected to a friction test and then classified as Careful Families, General Families, Serious Families or General Contracts or Severe Contracts.
