Got Pets? Here Are Some Pet-Friendly Fabrics to Make Your Life Easier


A truly welcoming home meets the needs of pets and humans alike. If you're struggling to deal with a cat or dog that routinely scratches your couches and/or upholstered chairs, these fabric options may be great for you.

Distressed Leather

Leather is ideal for any pet owners with allergies, as the fur and hair won't stick to the couch. However, pets can ruin leather by scratching it, which is why it's best to go with distressed leather. Distressed leather has an old-fashioned charm and won't show pet scratches.

Woven Fabrics

Woven fabrics include chenille, herringbone, and certain types of felt. These materials hide stains and pet hair, so they don't ruin the ambiance of your room. Pick a fabric with geometric patterns or a floral pattern for the best results.

Synthetic Fabrics

Synthetic fabrics such as acrylic, nylon, and high polyester are durable and easy to clean. As an added benefit, it's easy to remove pet hair from these materials with a lint brush or dry microfiber cloth.


Denim material is rugged and won't scratch easily. What's more, it can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Pet hairs won't stick to it, making it a great choice for anyone allergic to pet hair.

Outdoor Fabrics

If the sofa has been marked as suitable for outdoor use, the odds are that it will be perfect for indoor use with a pet. Outdoor fabrics won't sustain damage if your wet pet jumps or drools on them. What's more, they're typically easy to clean and maintain.

Outdoor fabrics are also stain- and odor-resistant. If you're having a hard time keeping the living room smelling nice, Sunbrella or a woven fabric by Marine Upholstery Fabric may be just what you need. A large selection of patterns makes it easy to choose furniture that matches your current interior design.
