Martindale Rub Test
Cleaning & Care
96% polyester, 4% acrylic
Perfect for a range of uses in the home and in contract settings. Aalto will sit beautifully on upholstered items such as chairs and sofas as well as lending itself to soft furnishings such as scatter cushions and footstools. Aalto scores 60,000 on the Martindale test, this means it is suitable for domestic use through to contract use. The Martindale test is essentially a process for scoring how durable fabrics are by seeing how much wear and tear they can take before there is a noticeable change in appearance. Aalto comes as domestic flame retardant (FR) as standard and is therefore suitable for all domestic use including large fixed upholstered items. For items in the home, please choose the Domestic FR option. For contract purposes i.e. hotels, restaurants, pubs etc please choose the Contract FR option.
Cleaning & Care
Dry clean only. Regular turning of cushions will greatly help to retain the appearance of the fabric as will regular vacuuming with a hand vacuum, test on a small unseen piece in the first instance.
