Mohair Fabric for Draperies and Upholstering

Mohair fabric was orgininally produced for the seating of thrones and the carriages of nobility.  It is known as the fabric of Kings and Sultans.  A soft luxurious fabric with great durability for a long lasting product. Mohair is sensuous, sleek and very much a realistic approach to a more urban environment for homeowners searching for "au natural."

It is a silk-like fabric made from the hair of the Angora goat.  It is known for it's high luster.  Also, being warm, durable and highly insulating.  Originally of Arabic origins, it was introduced in England by Charles V in the 1849.  As a decorating fabric, mohair is valued for its flame-resistance, and high sound absorbency.  Thus, mohair drapes are efffective insulators, keeping heart in during the cold weather (especially this winter) and a great barrier against outside hot temperatures in summer.
Think mohair fabric for reupholstering a sofa, chair and simple pleated elongated side panels for an elegant window treatment.

If you are looking to make your house a home, remember to order your fabrics through me.
