Durability and Sustainability
In a world of disposable consumer goods, of ever-rising landfills and ever-depleting fossil fuels, we think it’s important to find a way to make luxury last. It isn’t hard, once you put your mind to it. We’re here to make your life easier with FibreGuard’s easy-to-clean fabrics, but it’s also our mission to help you to sustain that feeling of gorgeous comfort in your interiors. Luxury isn’t so great when it’s fleeting, after all.
DOWN WITH DISPOSABLE LUXURY
Life gets in the way of enjoying it, sometimes. Muddy dog paw marks on the kitchen floor you just cleaned. Your poor, sick little toddler having yet another accident on the couch.
Spilling wine on your cushions. Life can be hard, but it’s the little things that make it easier. That’s what we’re here for: taking care of the little things so that you can look at the big picture.
Using fabrics and materials that are easy to clean are less stress in the end, and they don’t have to thrown away at the drop of a hat either.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IS GOOD FOR EVERYONE
Really taking the time to consider the impact of your products not only on their end-users but also on the world around us, on business, on the economy: this is key to real impact.
The saying goes: we’re here for a good time, not a long time, but we would argue, why not both?
The product design team at FibreGuard considers multiple impact points when designing beautiful fabrics.
They look at the functional needs of interior designers and architects, at the specifications required by contractors, furniture manufacturers, wholesalers and the hospitality industry.
FibreGuard fabrics undergo a battery of textiles tests to ensure that they meet the exacting requirements of all of these touch points.
WHICH FABRICS OR FABRIC BLENDS ARE THE MOST DURABLE?
Polyester is generally the most durable fabric, depending on what you use it for. It is a synthetic fibre, engineered to be stronger and more flexible than natural fibres, such as cotton.
Cotton and polyester blends are also long-lasting fabrics though. 50/50 fabric blends are very common because they have the softness and breathability of cotton and the desirable durability and flexibility of polyester.
