Teddy fabric, what is it?
Teddy fabric, also known as borg fabric, is often made of cotton with polyester and acrylic. The fabric is made of pile weave with a long plush.
The fabric can be characterized as soft, fluffy and has the look of a sheepskin. Teddy is made from a variety of fabrics. For example, there is a variety made from sheepskin and a variety made from synthetic fabrics. Nowadays synthetic fur is so well copied, that it can hardly be distinguished from real fur. Synthetic sheepskin is often made from polyester combined with acrylic. This combination mimics the pleated and smooth structure of real fur. The synthetic fur is then dyed in the desired color.
An advantage of the combination of these fabrics is that it is soft & supple. In addition, it is easy to maintain and also quite hard-wearing! In addition, teddy fabric is warm, but also breathable and moisture absorbent.

Furniture made of teddy fabric is easy to maintain. In most cases, regular vacuuming is sufficient.

Do this especially on places where you often sit, so that you avoid an indentation.
For roughening, use a slightly damp cloth and gently rub the fabric, with light pressure, so that the furry material stands up again.
