Futon Slipcovers and Pillow Covers - Synthetic Fabrics

Synthetic Fabrics


Polyester is one of the strongest fabrics, with low elasticity and high resistance to shrinkage and stretching. This fabric is highly durable and can be washed quite conveniently. This fabric can be mixed with cotton and wool and is widely used to make clothing and home furnishing items. These properties make this fabric ideal for futon slipcovers and pillow covers.

Color Ideas For Your Futon Covers And Matching Pillows


Microfiber Futon Slipcovers - A recent trend in futon slipcovers is the use of synthetic fabrics known as Microfiber or Microsuede fabrics. This is a synthetic fabric made from polyester that can be somewhat similar to velvet and suede in its texture, soft to the touch, highly durable, and easy to care for. Microfiber upholstery fabrics are mostly moderately priced, long wearing and easy to clean, making them ideal for use as pillow covers and futon slipcovers. It may have to be vacuumed often though, as one disadvantage to microfiber is that it tends to become dusty rather quickly, but this can be easily remedied by wiping the fabric with a damp cloth.
