When it comes to choosing a fabric for your sofa, we often get asked about durability, easy cleaning and protection. Many worry about their sofa becoming stained and hard to clean, especially those with young children and pets.
We know that practicality is a large factor when purchasing a sofa. Here at SOFA & SOUL we offer options for fabric protection treatments and we also offer a range of fabrics that have fabric protection woven into the fibres – the Zepel FibreGuard fabric range.
Developed in Europe by major global supplier Bru Textiles, Zepel’s FibreGuard technology provides strong stain resistance for a wide variety of common household stains. So whether you’re relaxing with family, entertaining or cuddling up with your furry friend, with a FibreGuard fabric you won’t have to worry about any accidents permanently staining your sofa.
The Zepel FibreGuard process coats the yarns of the fabric in the finishing process, resulting in a strong stain resistance that will last for the life of the overall fabric. Any stains on FibreGuard fabrics can be easily removed using a clean cloth, water and sometimes soap, enabling cleaning without specialised solutions or chemical cleaners. The simple cleaning process and excellent result on any coloured fabric make Zepel FibreGuard comforting for many households and families.
FibreGuard is also Oeko-Tex certified, a global independent standard involving the testing of the fabric for harmful substances. Oeko-Tex tests for numerous regulated and non-regulated substances which are harmful to human health. This certification ensures Zepel FibreGuard is environmentally safe to use in any residential or commercial setting.
