Chenille fabric is a very special style of cloth, usually woven in cotton, linen, silk or wool. The name is derived from the French word for caterpillar and as early as the 18th century was referred to as the 'Fabric of the Gods'. This type of fabric is usually tough wearing, with a high Martindale rub count, yet still extremely soft making it ideal for both curtain making and upholstery. So, if you are considering a Chenille Upholstery Fabric then it is perfect if you are undertaking upholstery projects and interior designs projects, but it also has many other uses such as curtains, drapery and bespoke cushions. Chenille fabrics are essentially like velvet fabrics in that sense.
