When selecting fabric for your next project, it’s important to consider the:

Natural Or Synthetic Fabric?

With so many fabric options, it can be tough to know where to start. A great first step is deciding between natural or synthetic material.

Natural fabrics are renewable materials made from plant-, animal- and even mineral- based fibers. They are ideal for printed patterns and are known for their comfort. However, natural fabrics tend to be a little less durable than their synthetic counterparts.

Synthetics, on the other hand, are fabricated entirely from materials created by humans. These materials typically last longer than natural fabrics, and offer other advantages, such as better stain- and water-resistance.

There is a third option: a natural-synthetic blend. Semisynthetic fabrics are manufactured chemically from natural sources, such as cellulose from plants. These materials offer the strength and resilience of synthetics, along with the benefits of natural fabrics.

Choosing the right fabric also depends on how you plan to use it. For furniture upholstery, consider how often the piece will be used. Couches and chairs that experience wear every day will benefit from durable fabrics with a higher thread count and a tighter weave.

Much lighter than fabrics used for upholstery, drapery fabrics can be utilized for curtains, bedding, pillows, crafts and even clothing.

Rethinking your window treatments is a simple, yet striking way to update your home decor. Drapery fabrics are ideal for curtains, as they are lightweight, and can either be printed or woven. Keep in mind the color, pattern and style that you desire asyou choose your fabric, and don’t forget about the lining. A strong, durable draperylining will protect your curtains from fading and deteriorating in the sun. Zarin offers one of the largest selections of drapery fabrics in NYC, with light filtering options ranging from sheer to blackout.


There are many instances when you may want to use fabrics outdoors. Awnings, canopies, cabanas, screens, cushions and coverings are some examples of projects where outdoor fabrics are absolutely necessary. In addition to being much more durable than upholstery or drapery fabrics, outdoor fabrics are specially treated toresist stains, mold and mildew from exposure to the elements. Zarin’s extensiveselection of outdoor fabrics allow you to provide comfort and weather protection without having to sacrifice designer style.
