The fabric weight

Neither too thin nor too thick. It is the weight of the fabric by gram per square meter. The higher it is, the heavier the fabric will be. It defines the quality of the fabric and its thickness.

At Le Lissier, our fabrics range from 200 gr/sqm for the lightest to 700 gr/sqm for the heaviest ones.

High wear resistance: The Martindale Test

It is a standard for upholstery fabrics.

The Martindale test measures the abrasion resistance of a fabric. A machine rubs it with considerable pressure and calculates the number of turns made, until the wire breaks. The higher the number of turns, the stronger the fabric.

Le Lissier fabrics withstand at a shift number higher than 10 000.
