Upholster with webbing
For the expert upholsterer, upholstery webbing is like our bread and butter. Upholstery webbing is the material found in most sitting furniture, such as chairs or sofas, that is used to create a firm seat for the cushion. Without webbing, your furniture projects won’t have that same firmness and your furniture would be unusable.
Good webbing should have the right combination of strength and flexibility for your project. You want the webbing to be firm enough for comfortable seating yet flexible enough not to break under pressure.
Types of webbing
For your upholstery webbing needs, we are delighted to offer a selection of jute webbing, rubber webbing, upholstery webbing, and accessories to suit a wide variety of projects.
Jute webbing has long been the most popular type of webbing found in most upholstery projects. Jute is an all natural fiber derived from plants. This material can be used to create extremely strong bands that make excellent webbing. In fact, for many years jute was the only material used as webbing in furniture projects. It wasn’t until the 1950’s that we began to see the creation of other synthetic webbings.
