Commercial Fabric Projects

Running a successful business requires many things, but for many, the most important aspect is customer experience. Does your establishment reflect your desired aesthetic and meet your standards? It’s important to keep your furniture and drapery maintained, along with making sure they work together in an appealing manner. If your business’ drapery, chairs, booths, benches, etc look drab, faded, or outdated- we have solutions.

Upholstery for Any Establishment


One of the best ways to illustrate your establishment’s style is through furniture upholstery and drapery. After all, most service establishments’ frontline is customer comfort. Choose the best fabric that best represents your business’ brand and identity.  High-grade upholstery is good for almost any type of business for example:

  • Doctor’s office - Waiting room benches, chairs, washable medical table covers 
  • Pet Clinic - Pet beds, finisher stools 
  • Bars and restaurants - Booth seating, outdoor pads, bar chairs 
  • Inns and Hotel - Foyer furniture  

Why High-Grade Upholstery?


Using high-grade upholstery for your business has many benefits. For example, you don’t have to deal with problems like warping, or fabric fraying.

High-grade upholstery fabrics are usually odor-releasing and stain resistant. They’re also unlikely to shrink and warp or come apart at the seams.

You can get a high-density, antimicrobial foam that is firmer, and better for high traffic areas in your business establishment. 

Make sure to upholster your outdoor furniture in the most fade-resistant, durable fabric, Sunbrella. Fabrics That Go has a vast collection of Sunbrella Fabric available for purchase, and provides complete services for outdoor cushions, pillows, and drapery. Sunbrella is also popular to use indoors for its ease of cleaning.

Reupholstering Existing Furniture


You don't need to replace your business' furniture. One of the best things about reupholstering old furniture is that you get to keep a piece of your establishment's history while giving it a new look. It’s also a great way to keep your business environmentally-friendly because you generate less waste by upcycling old items. 

Keeping existing seating, while updating furniture upholstery using new upholstery fabric with stylish & upgraded functionality, could be the rejuvenation your business needs

Custom Drapery Projects

Businesses need custom drapery for style and to block unwanted sun and heat. Choose the perfect fabric and Fabrics That Go handles the rest. Professional measurements, free quote on how much fabric you'll need & how much it will cost, plus installation (local).

*Sale In Store Only

Fabrics That Go

Our History

The story of Fabrics That Go is really a history lesson of the American textile industry. Robert Grunstein, Claire’s son who has since taken over the day to day operations likes to tell the family history in the fabric industry. “My grandfather started the business in 1945 in Paterson, NJ, which was silk capital of the US, after doing the fabric business for over 30 years on the East Coast, my parents thought to retire to Tucson.”

Claire remembers the first night she arrived by plane in Tucson with her late husband Herman. “I’ve never been farther than Pennsylvania so it was big,” Claire recounts. “We landed at night, the city was sparkling. I’ve never seen anything like it. We woke up in the morning and I looked at my husband and said I think I’m in paradise, what am I doing in New Jersey I have to move here!”

Although their intention was to retire, after a month of playing tennis they opened a small hobby store together in Tucson by the late 70s. Claire remembered it “like a closet, this was even smaller than our store in New Jersey.” Before long they moved to a larger store and landed at the store they’ve occupied for the last couple decades on 3105 N Campbell.

Today, Fabrics That Go carries the largest selection of Southwest fabrics in the world and attract customers from throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and as far away as Italy for their unique home fabrics. Despite being in the same industry for her whole life, Claire and her son Robert still has a strong passion for the business, and it starts with their customers. “I love the customer’s,” Claire said, “I want them to be happy, because when you’re fixing up your house and you are making it pretty, it should make you happy.”

Claire, and the rest of the staff will be on hand this Friday & Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm with cake, lemonade and a smile to help customers find their perfect fabrics. If you are lucky, you can catch one of her many fabric stories from the last 22 years on Campbell Avenue. Even if you can’t make it in on Friday or Saturday, stop by soon, there is a good chance you can see Claire when you visit, she still works around 30 hours a week even as she turns 92 this year.

Fabrics That Go, a Family Owned, Local Business

Keeping family values in mind, we back to the community whenever we can. Fabrics That Go supports local culture by showcasing the largest collection of Southwestern fabric, and by providing quality craftsmanship with upholstery and drapery services.

Sunbrella for Your Arizona Home

The Sonoran might be known as the wettest desert, but on average it rains only 36 days in a year. Arizona is sunny for the most part of the year, and chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time in your backyard or patio. How do you make your outdoor spaces more inviting? Using the right outdoor fabric for your furniture can make all the difference. Fabrics That Go carries Sunbrella, and it’s one of the best outdoor fabrics you can get. Here’s why:

Made to Last


Sunbrella is a type of fabric with wool-like or cotton-like appearance and texture but is totally synthetic. Made with 100% acrylic fiber, it’s durable enough to withstand the intense Arizona sun and almost any outdoor activity. Because it’s synthetic, it’s fade and stain resistant, it’s not susceptible to mold and mildew.

Popular for Indoor & Outdoor Furniture


Outdoor drapery, grill covers, outdoor upholstery and pillows --these are only a few ways you can use Sunbrella. Because it’s easy to clean, it’s also popular for indoor furniture, especially in high traffic areas in homes with pets and children.

Bar stool cushions or upholstery for easy clean up, with attractive solid colors, are perfect for outdoor bars and barbecues.
Wipe down spills and moisture easily off Sunbrella Fabric, which will last for many years, maintaining its vibrant colors.

Style Options to Fit Any Home


With so many color options and patterns to choose from, Sunbrella fabrics make it easier for you to match your outdoor furniture with your landscaping. Pro-tip: matching the color of your plant pots with the biggest furniture will give the space a cohesive feel. Popular solid colors are teal and rust orange.

Southwestern stripes like the orange and red Bravada Salsa fabric (longest running pattern) brings an interesting pop of color. Taupe and grey are also popular bases for larger furniture.

Show Off Your Arizona Pride with Southwestern Pieces in Your Home

Arizona has a unique culture and that can easily be shown in architecture and interior design. This distinct Southwestern style is colorful yet sophisticated and can be used with many other interior styles. It’s not that hard to incorporate this style into your home. Show off your Arizona pride with these simple tips:

 

Show Sophistication with Patterns


Pendelton, cabin, southwestern, Mexican, serape & Navajo patterns have all have cultural significance. Most of these patterns use colors akin to the Southwestern landscape and serves as a testament to lineage and heritage.

Oftentimes, people associate class, style, and taste to the weavers dedicated to reclaiming this style.

In hues of brown and red, sometimes even green and blue, these patterns break the monotony in the negative spaces of your home. Adding southwestern patterned pillows with vibrant colors to a plain couch can be a great idea.

Try mixing and matching to see which works best for you.

Add Variety to Space


Some Southwestern style fabrics integrate very well with most Arizona homes. It adds a pop of color while retaining the cozy, inviting feeling. The patterns are interesting enough to uplift a space, but not loud enough to stick out like a sore thumb.

This sofa is the epitome of southwestern color. You can add the most amazing upholstery pillows in the style you're looking for to accent the plain space.

Furs, hides, and leathers also make perfect southwestern accent pieces. Fabrics That Go has a wide variety to choose from, IN-STOCK!

Update Worn Down Furniture


Incorporating Southwestern style into your home doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. A great idea would be reupholstering a beat up wooden chair,  an old ottoman, or a faded couch. Simply use the fabrics as valances, table runners or throw pillows covers. Stick with the existing palettes in your home when choosing a new fabric.

Most Popular Southwestern Fabric

Chaco Sage is one of Fabric That Go's most popular upholstery fabric. Custom-made furniture using this lovely fabric is available in our shop.

Chaco Sage Fabric

Cactus Patterned Chair $700.00

Cactus Accent Chair with Matching Ottoman $940

Cactus Pattern Fabric Wingback Chair $700

Other Pieces

Quick Guide to Upholstery Fabrics

When you bring in your furniture to Fabrics That Go for re-upholstery, the first thing you’ll need to do is to browse our massive collection of upholstery-grade fabrics. This may sound overwhelming at first, but our staff is always ready to help you pick the right one. That said, we know that picking your own fabric can be rewarding, so we put together a quick rundown on the basics. Here’s a quick guide to the upholstery fabrics you can find at Fabrics That Go.

Woven Fibers


If you’re looking for something that feels natural but durable, woven fibers should be on top of your list. Upholstery-grade cotton, linen, microfiber and canvas fabrics are also commonly used for couches and living room chairs. Woven fibers are known to be more resistant to wear and tear. True cotton velvet is just as durable, and it also adds elegance to your living space.

Synthetic Fibers


Not all synthetic fibers are created equal. While many people prefer the coziness of woven fabric, acrylic indoor & outdoor fabric has a functional appeal. 100% Acrylic fabrics like Sunbrella are stain-resistant and fade-resistant, and is also non-shrinkable. Fabrics That Go has a selection of fabrics called Performance Wear that have 50,000 to 100,000 double rubs (abrasion tests to measure durability). Kids and animals beware, this fabric is strong enough to survive high traffic.

Don't have an old piece to reupholster? Did you know, Fabrics That Go is now providing custom made furniture? You choose the fabric and style, & our expert furniture designers make you a brand new piece custom made from your vision!

Suede


Ultrasuede and poly-suede are great multi-functional, synthetic fabrics. They can be used in fashion, vehicle upholstery and interior decorating. Suede is a good pick if you’re working with large pieces of furniture. Ultrasuede is washable so you don’t have to worry about damaging the deep coloring. It’s also a great alternative to velvet you want a fabric that has a sleek finish. 

Points to Remember


When choosing the perfect upholstery fabric, there are some things you should keep in mind, aside from texture, durability and overall look. Here are a few points:

  • Tweeds and some synthetic fibers are magnets for pet hair.
  • Higher pile or thicker fabrics conceal stains.
  • Silk is delicate and can easily be marred.
  • Denim is durable, but fadeable and wears thin under active use.
  • Heavy embroidery or open stitch fabric is not ideal for large furniture.
Fabrics That Go only uses quality outdoor fabric! We do everything from fabric supply, professional consultation, measurements, labor, to installation and delivery.

Washability


Washability always comes up as a concern, however, our experienced and knowledgeable staff can guide you in taking care of your newly upholstered furniture. Sheen, loose weave, backed/flocked fabric can be dry-cleaned, and 100% acrylic outdoor fiber is bleachable. There are some fabrics that can be machine or hand washed with mild detergent, baking soda and vinegar. 

If you need to know more about how to care for your fabrics, don’t hesitate to contact Fabrics That Go.

The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide

The Sonoran Desert is in full bloom once again. You look around your Arizona home and you’re hit with the sudden urge for renewal. As you scramble to do some spring cleaning and re-decoration, you face a hard truth: It’s not that easy to keep up with changing interior design trends every year. So what should you do? Find a style you love and stick with it. When in doubt, embrace local culture. Southwestern design has a lot to offer in terms of visual appeal. It is versatile, and it can be fused with many different interior styles. To help get you started, we give you: The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide.

Desert Tones


What sets the Southwestern style from most is its use of warm tones and contrasting colors. But these colors aren’t chosen arbitrarily. As the culture is deeply rooted in symbolism, colors used represent nature. In this case, they represent the desert sand and the sky.

Shades of brown, red, and sometimes orange fabric can be used to upholster wooden furniture like accent chairs, benches and couches.

Shades of blue like azure, turquoise, cobalt, and indigo, are often used to contrast the warm, reddish tones. The key is being consistent with your palette, instead of going overboard with too many patterns and contrasting colors.

Fabrics and Patterns


Recent design trends use bold southwestern patterns to heighten an otherwise plain space. Patterned valances go well with plain drapes, for example. Suede and leather chairs with brownish tones look great with patterned throws. In the dining room, southwestern fabric can be used as table runners and as upholstery for dining chairsPatterns can also be used as decorative pieces like tapestries and living room blankets.

Decorative Pieces


Wooden furniture is a staple of southwestern design. The look is achieved through combination of different types of wood or wood grain colors. Decorative pieces can be used as functional items as well: woven baskets can be used as living room storage, and local pottery can replace the usual vases.

Fabrics That Go has the largest collection of Southwestern Fabric! Add a touch of Beautiful Southwestern culture into your home.

As extra storage and seating, patterned ottomans can also be a lovely addition to the living room.

Of course, your home wouldn't be complete without some indoor flora. Dried flowers and cacti are the usual go-to indoor plants, but plants with large, deep green leaves also fits well.

Southwestern-Contemporary Fusion


The versatility of Southwestern and desert-inspired design shines when matched with different styles. You can see these pieces used in minimalist, boho, and even rustic interior design.

Rustic or natural style furniture (rough wood cuts, driftwood, distressed wood) look excellent with patterns and desert tones.

Woven pattern rugs and carpets blend well with metal furniture used in minimalist setups.

As accent and decor, southwestern pieces blend well with almost any muted color. Southwestern design intrinsically adds a lot of flair to your home, but it can also be subtle enough to add elegance.

Creating the Perfect Arizona Backyard

It may not seem like it, but spring is just around the corner. With spring comes warmer weather - and with the temperature rising, what better way to enjoy it than to relax outside in your backyard? Here are a few tips and tricks to create the perfect backyard:

 

Garden


One step in creating the perfect oasis is to garden. Whether you’re planting flowers, bushes, or vegetables, make sure you plan for the right plants for the season! It may take more time than you can bear to wait, but consider planting a tree. When it grows, it will provide natural shade and cooler temperatures in your backyard.

Update Your Patio Furniture


You can replace your old patio furniture completely, or you can reupholster what you already have using the same fabric as your umbrella. Fabrics That Go offers full service upholstery and can order Sunbrella fabric to arrive in just a few days. Hot tip: Sunbrella fabric doesn’t need to be used solely outside - it’s great for indoor furniture as it cleans up easily for both spills and homes with pets!

Replace Your Umbrella


If you don’t want to wait for a tree to grow to give off natural shade, purchase a patio umbrella or replace the torn fabric on an old one! When looking to replace old umbrella fabric, make sure you choose the right one. It needs to be water resistant and not fade easily in the sun. Consider using Sunbrella fabric - famous for its durability and wide range of colors available. You can find this fabric at your Tucson’s own Fabrics That Go!

Install An Awning


Another shade solution is to install an awning. There are many options to choose from, but remember, you don’t have to replace the whole awning if just the fabric is torn. If you find your current or future awning fabric has not held up, replace it with Fabrics That Go. They will remove, measure and install for you!

Once you have made all these updates to your home, relax in your new (or feels like new) furniture under the shade of your umbrella or awning. Remember to thank Fabrics That Go for making your life easier and your home feel refreshed and renewed!

Fabrics That Go is a one stop shop for all your upholstery needs, from indoor to outdoor furniture! Our staff is skilled in custom upholstery and will work according to your needs and specifications!

Using Patterns To Bring Personality To Your Arizona Home

When it comes to decorating your home, there are many places you can start. Some begin with finding cool knick-knacks, while others stick to throw pillows and curtains. However you start, just make sure it represents your personality! One easy way to do this is by using patterns in your decor. Here are a few ways to incorporate chic, quirky, or simple patterns -

 

BEDDING


When picking out bedding, some may stick to solid colors. If you’re trying to make your bedrooms look like a hotel, then a solid color may be your number one choice. To be more bold, have fun and pick out a pattern like chevron stripes, polka dots, or even something moroccan/southwestern inspired!

PILLOWS


Throw pillows are always fun to pick out. They can change with the season or change with your mood! There are quirky pillows with animals on it, or simple striped pillows that match most decor in most homes. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s something that screams you. If you can’t find the exact pattern you’re looking for, don’t forget that a throw pillow case is an easy and simple DIY that anyone can jump into.

CURTAINS


If you’re looking to add shade in your home while also giving it a subtle pop of personality, try looking to patterned curtains. When shopping for patterns here, it’s usually safer to stick to simple patterns such as stripes or textured fabric so as to not overpower the rest of the decor in your home. Curtains are also an easy DIY project. There are many tutorials online - some don’t even require you to sew!  

UPHOLSTERY


If you’re looking for a bigger, louder way to show who you are, why not pick a pattern for your upholstery? Whether that’s a couch or a chair, it’s another way to incorporate patterns into your home. The only tough part is that you may not find the right pattern to fit your home. If you find yourself running into this problem, this is another DIY project you can tackle. However, it is a little more advanced than making a pillowcase or curtain.

Should you feel intimidated by the prospect of reupholstering an entire piece of furniture, look for a company that can do it for you.

Tucson-based company, Fabrics That Go, is a one stop shop for this.

They carry over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from where you’re sure to find the right pattern, and they even have their own reupholstery service for those who aren’t interested in doing it themselves!

Fabrics That Go is a family-owned company run by a mother-son duo. They have been a part of Tucson community for over 30 years and going strong! Their knowledge in fabrics and DIY projects make them and their employees experts and are more than welcome to give advice on your future projects.

How The Boho Chic Movement Is Bringing Back Southwestern Fabric

Bohemian style is known as portraying a carefree, eclectic design. Boho-chic is taking the bohemian style and bringing it together with some modern flair. Most designers will look to using furnishings and lighting to bring in the modern touches while sticking to decor pieces like pillows, rugs, art, and bringing in fabrics/textiles to the furniture to give the bohemian feel. Fabrics and textiles to consider using include those that pull from Moroccan influences, Native American, and the growing popularity of Southwestern.

When looking to add the boho look, keep an eye out for fabrics and pieces that have a nomadic vibe. This includes the Southwestern style. Combine the fabrics and textiles with wood and metallic accents.

The boho chic style is making a comeback due to rising popularity of a vintage feel, but wanting to still have a put together look. It celebrates history and culture in a way that others may not think of right away.

If you’re looking to save some money or are having trouble finding the right look for your boho chic style, you can consider doing a few small DIY projects. Here are some ideas to bring this style into your home -

DIY Macrame Wall Decor


Macrame is extremely popular in design. You can find something similar in a store like Urban Outfitters but pay triple the price that you would pay if you were to make it yourself.

All it takes is a couple hours of braiding/knotting, fabric, and a wooden dowel. Google or YouTube a tutorial and you’ll find plenty to follow along to.

DIY Reupholster


Using the right fabric is important to the look/feel of boho chic. It can be difficult to find the right furniture in store, so what better way than to have custom furniture? Take an older piece (or less expensive) and find a boho type fabric - such as Southwestern - and reupholster it! It can be intimidating, but there are plenty of DIY instructions online.

DIY Trinkets and Pillows


A jewelry or catch-all tray can easily become boho-chic with a little gold/silver metallic paint paired with a pop of reds, purples, or bright blues.

Are you having trouble finding any of these specific fabrics? A local Tucson company called Fabrics That Go have over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from. You’ll be able to find everything from buttons to decorative nails.
