SUMMARY: Interior designer Bradley Burch, from Urban Mercantile in San Francisco, was ecstatic when he received his embroidered fabric after having it backed with our FabBack2® knit backing for upholstery.
Designer Bradley Burch was facing a design dilemma. He was designing a custom loveseat for a client. The client had embroidered fabric which was badly puckered, skewed, and had uneven selvage, making it unfit for the custom loveseat he wanted. But he loved the fabric so much that a solution had to be found. So, Bradley sent the fabric to us to see if we could save the day.
Our technical team got to work as soon as the fabric arrived. They framed the fabric, then steamed and airbrushed it to relax the fibers and then applied our special FabBack2® knit backing to stabilize the fabric and make it suitable for the workroom to cut and sew.
The puckering was remedied and the skewing was minimized. The finished fabric was packaged up with care and promptly delivered back to the designer's workroom. We hoped that Bradley and his team would be happy with the results, and we couldn't wait to hear back from him, and to see photos of the finished loveseat.
Bradley has given us permission to share his comments on our website:
