It's Showtime | Our 2018 Summer Showtime Highlights!!

by anderson gibbons June 11, 2018 1 Comment

STI and it's affiliate companies Brentwood Textiles, JBS Leather and Magnolia Home had an awesome week at Showtime in High Point, North Carolina! The design teams work hard for months and months to bring their new patterns to life and at Showtime, they finally get to "show" it off. In addition to showing our customers the new line, we had a lot of exciting news to share...

  • This season, we debuted Revolution Chenille! The chenille collection has the luxurious and soft hand that chenilles are known for, but with the stain resistance and cleanability of Revolution.

  • Revolution Outdoor is coming to a patio near you! We are so excited to offer our customers a PFC chemical free, easy to clean outdoor fabric. Revolution Outdoor has 1500 hours of light fastness, making it the perfect choice for porches, pool chairs and more. Revolution Outdoor also has a water repellent finish (without PFCs) to ensure the fabric will not mold after getting wet from rain or dew. Revolution Outdoor will hit the marketplace and be available for purchase in late Summer 2018.

  • Inspired by the success of our online cut yardage store,, we are launching the Revolution Design Center to our manufacturer and retail customers! The Revolution Design Center offers Revolution fabrics by the yard with no minimums and fast lead times (less than a week!). There are close to 400 SKU's available in the program, including many of our top sellers. The larger and labeled samples, as well as the organization of the rack allows a customer to easily shop Revolution even in a busy retail environment. *If you are interested in this program, please email

Where can we see and buy the fabrics. I like to see and feel before buying!
Is there an outlet in Kings Mountain? As a retired interior designer, these fabrics are the most exciting news in years! The resistant factor was desperately needed.
Thank you.

What Exactly is Olefin Fabric? Polypropylene is the chemical name given to the compound we know as the textile, olefin. Chemically speaking, polypropylene sounds like a complicated process, but is in fact a greener fabric than cotton, wool, silk, or rayon. Olefin, or P2, is a synthetic based polypropylene fabric that was first created in Italy in 1957.

Plain and Simple | Weaving Textures for Furniture Companies

We weave a lot of plains and textures... I’m not sure how simple it is. It can be more difficult at times to come up with an awesome basecloth.

First, it starts with the yarn. There are multiple yarn options:

- straight yarns... fine and coarse. The smaller yarns require more picks per inch.

- boucle yarns, fancy yarns... again be small or larger.

- chenille yarns... cut pile yarns in different sizes

You can use these yarns solid, pick and pick or mixed.
