Our Chenille is a heavyweight 100% polyester fabric with a deep pile. It is hardwearing and durable making it ideal for upholstery and soft furnishings that are subjected to heavy use.
Chenille is the French for caterpillar whose fur the yarn resembles giving it a distinctive look. It has a soft hand and the weave gives it strength.
The base colour is non-optic white, and the fabric is printed using dye sublimation digital fabric printers. Colour reproduction is strong and the fabric incredibly durable. Chenille performs particularly well in dry and wet rubs tests.
