"Curiosity is lying in wait for every secret."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In my nearly 30 years experience in the textile industry, I have come to realize I know a thing or two or three about fabric. Okay, let me get to the point. I have opinions about fabric. Yes opinions are subjective, and there are no right or wrong opinions, but I am surely one to argue my opinion when it comes to fabric for slipcovers.
My strongest opinions are:
1. Cleaning style should influence the fabric selection.
2. The design and the fabric must be compatible.
3. The experienced slipcover artisan will want to advise and approve of fabric choice.
Whether it is because I am passionate about R&D, or because my curiosity is innate, I have spent hours and hours researching fabrics, as they relate to new product development. Because I specialize in cotton and linen slipcovers, I have searched the world over and have wonderful offerings that are appropriate to designing beautiful and functional slipcovers for furniture, and would be happy to share these secrets with you. My collection focuses on cottons and linens, and these fabrics originate from the Carolinas to Ireland, England, Brazil, and beyond.

Now I must be true to another favorite quote and get moving on some slipcover action, because "An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory." Ralph Waldo Emerson
