Welcome to Hearth and Home, where we believe that ethical choices in home decor can be both stylish and durable. In your quest for the perfect custom cushion, you might find yourself navigating the vast sea of faux leather options. It’s a common dilemma: how do you ensure that you’re investing in high-quality vegan leather and not just another pretty piece that will wear out after a season? Today, we’re pulling back the curtain to reveal what makes a faux leather cushion truly top-notch.
Here are the most important things you need to compare while searching for a faux leather product.
The Double Rub Count
Let’s talk about durability, specifically the ‘double rub’ count. This is a term used in the upholstery industry to indicate how durable a fabric is. A double rub (literally a back-and-forth motion that simulates the wear and tear of someone sitting on a cushion) is a standard measure. Common options are rated for 10-30,000 double rubs. Our vegan leather fabric is aircraft grade and boasts a remarkable 1.5 million double rubs, which means it can withstand over a million sits before showing signs of wear. That’s so strong!
Easy to Clean
One of the joys of high-quality faux leather is its low maintenance, and ours is no exception. Life happens, and with it comes spills and mishaps. Our cushions are designed with real life in mind, making them incredibly easy to clean. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth can take care of most spills, and for tougher stains, a bit of mild soap won’t hurt.
Good for the Planet
Sustainability is at the heart of our product. We believe that choosing faux leather should not only be a cruelty-free choice but also an environmentally conscious one. Our vegan leather cushions are fully sustainable, meaning that they have a lower environmental impact, using fewer resources to produce and being completely cruelty-free.
Stain and Soil Resistance
We know that a cushion is only as good as its ability to resist the messes of daily life. Our faux leather is not just resistant to stains and soil; it’s practically invincible. Whether it’s a spilled glass of red wine or muddy paw prints, our cushions can be cleaned up to look as good as new, with minimal effort.
Your home is your sanctuary, and maintaining a healthy environment is paramount. Our high-quality vegan leather fabric is anti-bacterial, which means it does not harbor bacteria as some natural fibers can. This quality makes our cushions an excellent choice for homes, healthcare facilities, or any place where hygiene is a priority.
Making the Right Choice
At Hearth and Home, we’re proud to offer you cushions that tick all the boxes. Our vegan leather cushions offer unparalleled durability, easy maintenance, environmental sustainability, exceptional stain and soil resistance, and anti-bacterial properties, ensuring that you’re not just making a style choice, but an informed and responsible one as well.
But how do you, as a discerning customer, make sure that you’re choosing the best quality faux leather? Here are some insider tips:
1. Ask for the Rub Count: A high rub count means high endurance. Don’t shy away from asking for this number when cushion hunting.
2. Inquire About Cleaning Instructions: Quality vegan leather should be easy to clean. If the care instructions are complex, it might not be the low-maintenance material you’re looking for.
3. Look for Sustainability Certifications: These can give you confidence that the material is produced with ecological integrity.
4. Test for Stain Resistance: If possible, ask for a sample and do a spill test. Good quality faux leather won’t absorb liquids quickly and can be wiped clean.
5. Check for Anti-Bacterial Properties: Especially important in our current climate, materials with anti-bacterial properties offer an extra layer of protection for your home.
By arming yourself with this knowledge, you can rest assured that you’re choosing a faux leather cushion that is not just beautiful and feels like real leather but also lives up to the rigors of everyday life.
