What is a natural fiber?

Natural fibers are fabrics that are obtained directly from natural fibers, such as cotton, wool or linen. Your advantage: They feel pleasant on the skin.
cotton
The classic among upholstery fabrics is a purely natural product, which is currently particularly popular with country or Scandi-Look is used and shines particularly through breathability and durability.
However: Cotton is sensitive to dirt and creases, so you should rely on an appropriate coating here or on a mixed product of cotton with other fabrics. Removable cushion covers that can be thrown in the washing machine are also very useful.

linen
Linen has properties similar to cotton, but it looks a bit coarser and has a slight sheen. As a purely natural product, it is breathable and skin-friendly. Because of its cooling effect, it is particularly popular in summer. Visually, linen goes well with all natural furnishing styles such as Modern Country or New Scandinavian.
New wool
Do you know the difference between wool and new wool?
New wool comes from living animals and is of particularly high quality.
Wool, on the other hand, can come from dead animals or be made from the remains of old textiles. New wool is the fresher wool, usually straight from the hair of sheep!
Wool covers give your upholstery a noble and high-quality aura. As a purely natural product, new wool has a pleasant temperature-regulating effect and therefore never feels too warm or too cold on the skin. New wool is breathable, antibacterial and dirt-repellent.
Wolle

Mixed fabric

Viscose
Viscose is similar in structure to cotton and is also of natural origin - but man-made. Viscose is a semi-synthetic fiber. This means that although it is based on natural cellulose, the end product is manufactured using an artificial process. The fine fibers are used to produce artificial silk, also known as “rayon”. Viscose feels pleasantly soft, is kind to the skin and has a silky sheen.
Which fabric suits me best?
As is so often the case, the answer is not quite as clear. One would prefer to have the advantages of all textiles and no disadvantages. This is also the reason why manufacturers often combine types of fabric (mixed fabrics). Natural and artificial materials are also combined in order to combine a pleasant feel with high durability. However, the type of fabric should not be the only deciding factor when choosing.The weave and quality of the selected material also have a decisive influence. Certifications, which we will discuss in a later article, also help here.
