Ticking fabric is a popular choice for curtains, blinds and upholstery – it's usually a cotton or linen fabric mix tightly woven with a timeless stripe. If you’re looking for a contemporary interior choice that won’t go out of fashion, incorporating the traditional ticking style is a fantastic solution.
Ticking fabric is a classic choice for soft furnishings which has endured ever-changing trends. Typically used as upholstery and curtain fabric, ticking comes in two colours, the main cloth being woven in cream or white yarn and then a bold colour as the main stripe. The weave is a herringbone style with a feathered striped edge, this makes the stripe appear larger. Discover more about what ticking fabric is and how you can use it, in this handy article.
