Main Line Flax Fabric Samples (group c)


  • Main Line Flax builds a bast fiber to create a new inherently flame retardant fabric from sustainable sources. No chemical flame retardants! A symbol of purity, wild flax has been used in textiles for thousands of years thanks to its strong, long and smooth fibers found inside the stem of the plant. The fiber is spun into a 70-30 wool flax blend, then fiber dyed using low impact dyes to create beautiful mixture yarns which are woven into interesting solids and cross-colors inspired by the rich tones of rare jewels. This incredibly durable fabric is great for heavy duty residential end use as well as in a contract environment. The fabric will naturally allow the upholstered pieces to meet the strict criteria for use in public settings.

    Consider ordering arm covers and throws to protect your investment on an ongoing basis. Consider ordering a few extra yards of fabric from the same dye lot as your upholstered piece should a cushion cover and paneled section need to one day be replaced.

  • Because dust and dirt cause fabric to wear faster, we recommend vacuuming regularly with an upholstery attachment. An annual professional vapor cleaning will keep your upholstered furniture looking its best. To minimize fading, avoid placing your upholstered furniture in direct sunlight or in front of a gas heater. Dark fabrics and natural fibers like cotton are most susceptible to fading. 

    For isolated spot or stain: Blot stains or spills with an absorbent cloth. Do not rub the stain into the fabric. If stain persists, mix equal amounts of water and vinegar, and blot stain.
    Cushion covers to avoid shrinkage: Spot clean with mild detergent.
    Entire upholstered piece: Professionally vapor (steam) clean at high temp with low moisture to avaoid using chemicals.
    Fabric: Hand wash in cold water and air or line dry. Maximum 7% shrinkage.
