Striped ticking fabric is an excellent choice for those wanting a scheme that will not date; neither cutting edge contemporary nor fussy or twee, it will complement most interiors. Ticking is a straightforward classic cloth which will look good for decades. Traditionally these striped fabrics were very densely woven cotton herringbone or twill weave cloth used for making mattress and pillow cases.
The stripes in our tickings are all integral to the weave, rather than printed, and have an excellent drape. We have found this type of ticking to be a durable choice for fixed upholstery.
