The Science of Fabric Selection

Understanding the different types of fabric testing methods is crucial to ensuring that you select a durable and fit-for-purpose fabric. At King Living, all fabrics and leathers undergo rigorous testing for wear and tear to ensure they are both high quality and durable​2

  1. Fabric Abrasion Test: This measures the durability of a fabric by rubbing it in a specific way for a set duration. The fabric is rated based on how many 'rubs' or cycles it can withstand, with higher numbers indicating greater durability. Categories range from light domestic (for cushion use only) to heavy duty commercial use​.
  2. Fabric Pilling Test: This test gives an understanding of how likely the fabric will produce small balls of fibres, also known as 'pills', over time. The fabrics are rated on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being a fabric that showed minimal or no change in appearance after a pilling test. All King Living fabrics have pilling ratings of 3 stars or above, making them suitable for everyday use​.
  3. Colour Fastness to UV Light Test: This assesses how much sunlight a fabric can withstand before it starts to fade. Fabrics are graded between 1-8 or 1-7 (depending on the testing method), with 1 indicating the least resistance to light exposure. If your sofa will be placed in an area with significant sunlight exposure, choosing a fabric with a higher rating will ensure longevity​.
