Types of fabric backing and why you should have a backing applied to your fine fabrics.

 
   
Knit Backing
Cotton polyester knit backing is permanently bonded to the back of your fabric. The knit adds rigidity and resilience to otherwise fragile fabrics. Knit Backing is the most desirable method available for reinforcing light weight cottons, silks, and fabrics such as chenille for use in upholstery, drapery, duvet covers, quilts, handbags and more.
