When restoring historical furniture I use original natural upholstery materials including african grass, horsehair, Hessian cloth etc. and more than 500 years old craftwork.
Using original materials and technologies not only makes the furniture functional but also preserves its historical value. When selecting upholstery fabric, its hould be as close to the original as possible.
For this type of furniture I recommend replicas of historical fabrics from Austrian company Backhausen. Their history dates back to 19th century, and over the time they have been working with the best fabric designers. Today Backhausen is world´s top historical fabric producer.
