The Advantages of Knit-Backing & GreenShield
ADVANTAGES OF KNIT-BACKING UPHOLSTERY FABRICS
The Purpose of applying Knit-Backing, FabBack® to upholstery fabric is to add body, resiliency, and durability while eliminating seam slippage. Knit-Backing makes light to mid-weight fabrics such as silks, cotton, linens, polyesters, and chenille more suitable for upholstery use. You can avoid having sitting pouches on your upholstered couch by applying FabBack® to your fabric. See the difference Knit-Backing makes on your furniture!
BENEFITS OF KNIT-BACKING UPHOLSTERY LEATHER
Many clients are under the impression that natural and Vegan/Faux leather does not need Knit-Backing for upholstery due to the strength of the material. Although Faux and Natural leather are materials with full-body, both share a property that can compromise the longevity of your upholstered furniture…stretching. With that being said, you need to be careful when using vegan leather for upholstery as it can crack when trying to stretch it too much.
Our Knit-Backing material provides support and flexibility to faux leather while undergoing the upholstery process and beyond as it protects the faux leather from stretching and cracking with daily use. Natural leather will stretch a great deal more than the Vegan and therefore, would also benefit greatly from Knit-Backing as it will reduce overstretching from lying down and sitting which eventually will lead to pouches and dents on the furniture.

OUR KNIT-BACKING IS GENTLE ON THE FABRIC
Our proprietary FabBack®, Knit-Backing application consists of permanently bonding a knitted poly/cotton thin fabric to the back of fabrics making it easier to work with, adding strength and stability without changing the feel or integrity of the fabric or leather. Our lead time is 7-10 business days!
ADVANTAGES OF GREENSHIELD® STAIN MOISTURE PROTECTION
Our Stain & Soil Protection treatment, GreenShield® is a water-based, permanent water repellant, which is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. GreenShield® protects fabrics from moisture and the toughest stains even after sitting on the fabric for hours. Soil, greasy messes like sauces, fried foods, burgers, and common liquid spills such as coffee, wine, and juices can be cleaned in a dab without a trace.
Watch how we drop a whole burger on white fabric and all the ketchup, mayo, tomato, onions, and the grease from the burger is wiped out clean!
See the power of GreenShield over liquid spills!
GREENSHIELD® PROTECTS SURFACES FROM VIRUSES SUCH AS COVID-19
GreenShield® creates a surface that repels water and oil-based materials, including viruses such as COVID-19 which has an oily lipid outer layer. If any virus comes in contact with a material treated with GreenShield® C6XL, the virus will roll off the surface of the fabric/material; making it impossible to adhere to the material.
GREENSHIELD® STAIN PROTECTION IS GENTLE ON YOUR FABRIC
This process is mechanically and chemically gentle on the fabric therefore does not affect the color, texture, or feel of the fabric. Commonly used on upholstery, wallpaper, fabric wall coverings, blinds, and curtains. Our lead time is 7-10 business days.
