Go Leather

Since then, leather has been produced by using animal skins and preserving them with a chemical, so you can use them for clothing, furniture, wearables, tools, and high-quality fabric.
This material has been with us for at least more than 7 000 years. It is made by drying fresh skins in the sun that is followed by thumping and drenching in salt. The Egyptians and Hebrews first developed leather about 400 BCE.

Today there exists what we call artificial leather. This product is an imitation of leather, which is commonly from dried plants or rotten fruits. They also have their advantages over genuine leather.

Apart from that, this material is not so hard to clean. You can just dry vacuum it, and the dirt would just go away. It is material is perfect for your pet’s items like your pet’s kennel.

Herringbone Weave

The Roman Empire uses the herringbone in their roadway and building. It looks like an interlocking pavement that is built on top of crushed stones. It was a durable pattern because it absorbs the compression of football and traffic.

This pattern was applied to Ancient Egyptian jewelry of elite family. Today, this pattern is now seen in high quality fabrics.

A high-quality fabric that has a Herringbone weave looks like a broken yard goods weave. It appears to be of a zigzag pattern. If you look closely it appears to be a feather or a quill. Sometimes it is the small details that can make something ordinary special.

The designer of this fabric can add a different color so that the design would stand out more. You can see by its look that its weave is stable and beautiful. If you love an artistic upholstery fabric for your home that is an advantage to your pets, this kind is perfect for you.

Final Thoughts

As a general rule for choosing high quality fabrics, look for something with the correct pattern, texture, color, and tight weave. Take note that darker colors help hide pet hair and dirt. However, having a pet with white hair would require you to get a lighter high-quality fabric.
