Tweed Fabric Suppliers
In it's official definition, "Tweed is a rough, woolen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is usually woven with a plain weave, twill or herringbone structure. Color effects in the yarn may be obtained by mixing dyed wool before it is spun." In the Lewis Interiors definition, great tweed fabric starts here!
As the Internet's premier tweed fabric suppliers, this timeless upholstery product definitely our favorite fabric to use when building or refurbishing furniture. Why? Because it's durable, quality fabric that almost everyone can agree on! Our favorite color to use is classic gray.... and we use many shades of gray tweed (maybe not 50 Shades of Gray, but close!). What is your favorite color of tweed? What is your favorite furniture fabric?
