I am looking for fabric to reupholster a couch. Is 100% cotton as durable as synthetic fabrics?
Asked by Polly Scott
I need something very durable (it has to last) and kid-proof. I am considering a 100% cotton uncut corduroy or a 100% nylon velvet.

One hundred percent cotton (unless treated with toxic chemicals) is not the most durable upholstery choice.
I would recommend a commercial grade upholstery fabric of recycled content, such as
Tough enough to stand up to kids and pets, but beautiful enough to make the entire room.
