SaveOnFabrics.com Review of Seismic Sesame Vinyl by Kravet Christian: "This is a Kravet vinyl called Seismic Sesame from their faux leather collection. It's pretty amazing stuff because it has a bonding process that makes the fabric impermeable. The bonding process means that anything that gets on the fabric is not going to be part of the it. You can wipe it off; take it off with rubbing alcohol, which is pretty amazing because alcohol would normally dry out the vinyl." Michelle: "It's a very stretchy vinyl. Generally speaking vinyls that have a relief pattern are not so stretchy. This one has striations, but it stretches quite a bit. It's also light weight, you can tell by looking at it." Christian: "It sewed up nicely. It seems to cover the furniture really well once you use heat and pull it in to remove the wrinkles. It definitely takes a different type of technique to use it." Michelle: "It's a high-end vinyl that is really difficult to work with. It's pretty. That's about it. It's got a different look than most of the vinyls do; particularly Kravet has a lot of interesting, unique patterns." Christian: "You can use it as a great accent fabric or as a cushion fabric. You could even use it as wall upholstery, padded titles or in a boat."

Duramax Espresso Olefin upholstery fabric is a great choice for furniture requiring durable, stain-resistant upholstery. SaveOnFabrics.com Fabric Review: Christian: " This is a polyolefin, another fiber that's totally synthetic. Olefin is similar to synthetic carpeting. This is sort of the answer to what was originally the Danish wools. I would use this over the Danish wools even though that's still available, because it just easier to deal with. "It holds shape really well and steams out nicely. You can get a really tight fit. "It does fray a little bit, but as long as it's on the inside and you have half an inch seam allowance, I think you're good. "This is a looser weave and has more breath-ability than Sunbrella. Colorfastness is probably pretty similar. "You could use this for multiple applications. You could use it for home furnishings. You could use this for restaurants; anything commercial. It would be great on a boat, though inside the boat would be better. (Outside) is where Sunbrella would be better."
