Yorkshire Fabric Shop has 1000’s of upholstery fabrics but only certain fabrics make it to be contract and commercial grade otherwise known as Crib 5. Contract upholstery fabrics have to be much more hardwearing than domestic fabrics simply because there will be more contact with the fabric. Typically commercial upholstery fabrics have to have a rub test of more than 30,000 to be classified as a contract fabric but depending where you use the fabric in the interior you could use a lower rub test. Yorkshire Fabric Shop can treat fabrics with a contract flame treatment should you want to use our fabrics in a commercial environment. Choose Yorkshire Fabric Shop to be your Crib 5 fabric supplier.
