This Performance logo symbolizes our fabrics that are highly resistant to abrasion, exceeding 30,000 double rubs (ASTM D4157, Wyzenbeek Abrasion Test) and are suitable for commercial usage.

Please note that some of our decorative fabrics that also pass 30,000 double rubs may sometimes be suitable for lighter contract use, such as decorative pillows or bench backrests. In all cases, you should always determine the final usage context in order to make the appropriate choice of fabric.
