Now you can get the upholstery you want, no worries.
In association with James Dunlop Textiles.
When your good taste in upholstery says yes but your love of red wine, children and pets says no, there is another option. Introducing your new secret weapon: FibreGuard.
How often have you coveted furniture or furnishings only to conclude they’re just not practical? With this anti-stain technology developed in European laboratories and available exclusively in Aotearoa at James Dunlop Textiles, those days are over, because there’s little FibreGuard-protected items can’t handle.
FibreGuard fabrics feature a stain-resistant coating that’s infused through the yarn at the textile mill, and undergo rigourous tests to rival even the tipsiest guest, muddiest dog or snack-wielding-est toddler; common stains covered run from lipstick and pen to ketchup and crayon, and every hot mess in between. The result is fabrics that are highly durable, and not at the expense of style — they’re in all the latest materials and colour trends.
These fabrics couldn’t be easier to clean, either. Just add water (and in some cases a smidgen of soap), dab with a clean cloth and stains are erased. A permanent coating embedded during the manufacturing process, FibreGuard won’t deteriorate not matter how often you spot-clean or wash it — it’ll last for the life of your fabric.
All this and independent Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification gives you top-quality, enduring, attractive upholstery entirely free of harmful chemicals and produced by socially and environmentally responsible methods.
