SBI Knit Backing

SBI Knit Backing is one of our most popular finishes because it adds the ideal amount of reinforcement to fabric intended for a wide variety of uses including upholstery.  Through gentle techniques, we stabilize your fabric by backing it with a high quality cotton polyester knit.  This finish adds tremendous body and luxurious hand to otherwise fragile fabrics.  It will increase your fabric’s durability, resiliency and lifespan.

About the Finish

SBI Knit Backing is a proprietary process in which we bond a cotton polyester knit to the back of your fabric with a non-water soluble adhesive. This finish adds stability and durability to light, medium, and heavy-weight fabric.
