Upholster with webbingFor the expert upholsterer, upholstery webbing is like our bread and butter. Upholstery webbing is the material found in most sitting furniture, such as chairs or sofas, that is used to create a firm seat for the cushion. Without webbing, your furniture projects won’t have that same firmness and your furniture would be unusable.
Good webbing should have the right combination of strength and flexibility for your project. You want the webbing to be firm enough for comfortable seating yet flexible enough not to break under pressure.
Types of webbingFor your upholstery webbing needs, we are delighted to offer a selection of jute webbing, rubber webbing, upholstery webbing, and accessories to suit a wide variety of projects.
Jute webbing has long been the most popular type of webbing found in most upholstery projects. Jute is an all natural fiber derived from plants. This material can be used to create extremely strong bands that make excellent webbing. In fact, for many years jute was the only material used as webbing in furniture projects. It wasn’t until the 1950’s that we began to see the creation of other synthetic webbings.
Jute webbing usually requires coils beneath both for support and for comfort. If working with jute, be sure to stretch the webbing as tightly as possible around the frame of the furniture. As a natural material, jute does have a tendency to stretch over time.
Rubber webbing is the modern day version of jute webbing. Made from a synthetic material, it has replaced jute in many contemporary furniture constructions. Rubber makes an excellent webbing material because of it’s combination of strength, durability, and flexibility. It won’t tear or break easily and holds up extremely well under pressure. If you are working with rubber webbing, you may be able to exclude metal coils from your project.
To attach your rubber webbing to the frame of your furniture project, we are happy to provide a selection of webbing clips, especially made for this purpose.
The choice between jute webbing and rubber webbing is up to you, and may depend on the end goal of your furniture project. Whichever you choose, you can shop with confidence knowing you are protected by our customer satisfaction guarantee.
