What is Crypton Fabric?
Crypton Fabric is specially engineered so that every fiber is encapsulated with a patented impenetrable moisture barrier that protects the fabric from spills, keeping stains from setting in the foam of the cushions. The fabric can also be treated with a disinfectant when used in conjunction with their EPA-registered Crypton Disinfectant & Deodorizer. It’s well-known to be one of the very best fabrics on the market; it’s even been used in Buckingham Palace and the White House!

We recommend spot cleaning all of your upholstery fabric for best results. Use cold water and mild detergent (such as Woolite). Drying is NOT recommended – Air Dry Only.
If you have chosen a Premier Prints fabric, the manufacturer recommends not laundering as it may shrink.
If you do choose to wash your Hearth and Home custom upholstered fabric or item(s), we are not responsible for any damages that may occur during the process. Hand tufted and button tufted cushions cannot have their cover removed for washing.
