About ILIV

If you fancy upholstery prints that not only appeal to the eye but also give exotic decor to your home and office then look no further. ILIV a UK-based company has dedicated itself to ensuring that you are supplied with nothing less than the best.

The main purpose of upholstery is to change the outlook of furniture by giving it a new (less boring) appearance that’s not only attractive but also matches the theme of your business, home, and of course, your taste.

Understandably, printing is one of the last and most important stages of fabric making. This stage makes all the difference; whether you are going home with that upholstery fabric or not.

Traditionally, printing was that final stage where designs were pressed down on a cloth template mounted on a rotating drum, and in the process transferring the design print onto the cloth. This process, however, has been computerized at ILIV courtesy of technological advancement.

It’s worth mentioning that upholstery can be divided into two main categories; light upholstery and general upholstery.

Light upholstery is the most common and is specifically designed for a certain purpose. Let’s say on a dining chair and not some furniture that is more likely going to be exposed to pull and tear.

Then there's heavy upholstery. Perfect for everyday use as far as kids and pets are concerned. In the event that you use it on a sofa, you are guaranteed that it will not wear out before its designated lifespan. General upholstery, though few in number, are general-purpose upholstery which is designed to serve a wide range of purposes and you can also use them either on your sofa, study chair, and even dining chair without any significant drop in performance.

Many upholstery printers offer a few repetitive patterns which leave you with a limited selection of upholstery prints to choose from. Not ILIV, their upholstery prints boast of an edge over other prints. Their printing experts possess creativity akin to no other and are even open to creating customized prints upon request.

Some of the fabrics that they use for our upholstery prints include cotton, linen, and muslin. Cotton is grown in tropical regions whereas linen is extracted from the flax tree. Muslin, on the other hand, is associated with the Arabs and is believed to have originated from an old town in present-day Iran.

Some of our wide range of prints include the Ochre K5, Mink K5, Sky K5, Jade K5, Aubergine K5, Garnet G1, Linen G1, Tamarind G3, and Salsa G3, to mention a few. All you have to do is browse through their high-quality range of prints and as soon as you spot your choice, place your order and they'll take care of it.

Lastly, it's important that you choose an upholstery fabric that is durable, strong, and light-resistant. In a bid to prolong its lifespan, make sure you dry clean it at a professional dry cleaner at all times.
