Riviera Textured Water Repellent Fabric – Claret
Lightweight and supple yet durable – this versatile textured polyester is backed with a water resistant coating on the reverse.
Perfect for a range of projects including rainwear (jackets, kid’s splash trousers, hats, etc), wash/laundry bags and outdoor cushions.
A few tips on sewing with this fabric:
It is recommended that the care of this fabric is ‘wipe clean only’ – do not wash or tumble dry as this may damage the coating. It is also recommended not to press directly with an iron – use a thick pressing cloth. Sewing clips are preferred over pins so that no unnecessary perforations are made in the fabric. Use a new, sharp sewing needle.
Our in-house test showed this fabric as waterproof (water pools or runs off the surface without soaking in), but please be aware that if the coating is damaged (by heat, or pooling water over time) then water can soak through. Any seams that are not heat-sealed with specialist tape will also create a point where excess water can seep through.
