Hospitality fabrics, also known as contract fabrics, are those that are specifically designed and manufactured for use in commercial settings such as hotels, restaurants, and office buildings. These fabrics are typically chosen for their durability and ability to withstand heavy use. They are most commonly made from strong, long-lasting materials such as polyester, nylon, and vinyl, and are often designed to resist staining, fading, and wear and tear. In contrast, fabrics for the home are typically chosen for their aesthetic appeal and comfort and may be softer and more comfortable to the touch. They may also be more prone to staining and fading, as they are not specifically designed for heavy use.
