With over twenty-five years of experience, it is our mission to provide the highest quality backing and finishing services in the industry.


Backing Services

Knit Backing for Upholstery

Knit backing is permanently bonded to the back of fabrics, adding body, resiliency, and durability while eliminating seam slippage. This fabric backing makes lightweight fabrics such as silks, cottons, and chenilles more suitable for upholstery use.

feature1

Our proprietary processes allow us to knit back fabrics that are traditionally very difficult to back. These include silks, velvets, polys, cottons, plaids, stripes, embroidered and more.

Paper Backing for Wallpaper

Wallpaper backing is a nonwoven material that is applied to the back of fabrics to make them suitable for use as wall coverings. This adds body, stability, and makes the fabric easier to work with when cutting and pasting onto a wall.

feature2

Turn almost any fabric into custom wall-coverings. Paper backing can be applied to most types of fabrics including plaids, stripes, embroidered and patterned fabrics.

Stain & Moisture Protection

Our stain protection technologies make it easier to keep your upholsteries, draperies, and fine fabrics looking fresh and clean, protecting them from soil, stains and spills. Our processes do not impact the weight, look, feel, or color of the fabric.

feature2

GreenShield® is an environmentally friendly stain protection that is formaldehyde free, produces no VOC's, and uses only one-third of the chemicals used in other finishes.

Finishing Services

Ultra-Violet Treatments

Natural fiber fabrics that are exposed to sunlight will fade over time. Our ultra violet treatments will minimize the effects of the sun by blocking ultra-violet rays, prolonging the use and increasing the colorfastness of the fabric.

feature2

In most cases, our ultra-violet treatments will increase a fabric's UPF factor to between 25 and 50 in order to block 96.0 - 99% of UV radiation. This will prolong the typical lifespan of the fabric by over 300%.

Flame Resistant Treatments

Fabrics used in public places such as schools, theaters, convention halls, hotels, and other public places must meet certain flammability standards. A common test for fabric flammability is the NFPA 701 Test.

feature2

FlameGard® flame protection technology will reduce the flammability and delay the combustion of fabric, thereby allowing treated fabrics to meet some of the most stringent local and federal regulations.

Fabric Bonding

Bonding involves fusing two or more substrates together for enhanced strength, puncture resistance, and appearance.

feature2

Our engineers routinely fuse products such as naugahyde vinyl, PVC, leather, ultra suede, alcantara, and many natural and synthetic fabrics.
