Microfibre is a lightweight, man made fabric that is very durable and resilient. Soft to the touch, this tactile fabric has a high level of colour fastness and can be manufactured to take on the characteristics of natural materials like leather, suede and nubuck.

Really versatile, microfibre fabric can also be printed, embroidered or heat embossed to create patterns and designs.

As this type of fabric is so durable, it will age well and is one of the easiest options to clean, making it a great choice for busy households or homes with younger children.

It can easily be cleaned with our fabric care kit, although you may want to ensure that Sofashield is selected for peace of mind.

Important tip: To avoid water marks after cleaning we advise that you dampen a colourfast cloth with boiled water from a kettle and gently wipe the entire panel or cushion from seam to seam. This will help to prevent any water stains as the fabric dries.
