Using silk as upholstery
  • Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how (or if) the heavy silk satin organza can stand up for use as upholstery. I have a customer who is interested in my dyed fabrics for use on her dining room chairs. It seems sturdy (it holds up well for the garments and pillows I've made), but sitting on it seems like a whole new thing. Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Thank you!
  • Hi,
    I would doubt it will hold up to that kind of usage. You could try backing the organza with a heavier fabric but i am still not convinced it will be durable enough.
