Care guides


Our fabrics  

We work with the very best British and European manufacturers to curate our fabric collection, which includes velvet, linen, cotton, wool and leather. Every fabric will have its own rub count, which determines how hard-wearing it is, and accompanying care guidance. View the information for each fabric here

General guidance 

  • Do not pull at loose threads. Instead, trim with scissors or poke it back through with a long pin.  
  • Do not position any textile close to a fire, radiator or air conditioning unit. Direct sunlight will also cause the colour to fade over time.  
  • Airborne pollutants like smoke and strong perfumes will cling to fabric. Regularly air the room to avoid this.  


Everyday care  

  • We recommend regularly vacuuming your upholstery with a soft brush attachment or using a handheld brush. (Always use a specialist velvet brush for velvet).  
  • When spills occur, gently blot the area with a clean, damp cloth. Avoid rubbing as this can press the stain deeper into the weave.   


Our Barnaby saddle leather is a type of aniline leather, which means that the top layer of the hide hasn’t been interfered with.  

Like our other fabrics, you can vacuum and dust leather upholstery regularly. Do not use saddle soap, wax or spray polish, as these products may cause irreversible damage. Instead, remove marks with a soft leather cleaner. You can then use a neutral leather cream to restore the sheen.  


Everyday care  

  • Vacuum regularly without a brush attachment.  
  • Spot clean marks and stains as soon as possible using a damp, colour-fast cloth.  

Deep cleaning  

  • Professional dry cleaning.  

Cushions & throws  

  • Depending on the fabric, our cushion covers are either machine washable or professional dry clean only. Please see the care label attached to the product.  
  • Do not wash cushion pads.  
  • Our throws are professional dry clean only.
