Sheepskin for Interiors

Sheepskin is widely used in aviation interiors, specifically for pilot seats. Genuine sheepskin provides extraordinary comfort and it remains cool during the summer heat and warm during the cold winter months.

With its modern day popularity, sheepskin is finding its way into other interior design applications as well. It provides a soft, warm, inviting texture to any room setting. This versatile product may be used as an upholstery textile for both contemporary and traditional seating, ottomans, pillows, as a natural throw rug, as a larger area rug, and even as wall coverings!

Spills may be blotted with a dry, clean cloth and dried-on soils may be removed by lightly brushing the fleece. Furthermore, designers may vary looks and textures by combining both straight, ironed fleece with naturally curly fleece.

    I didn’t realize how much sheep skin is used in products I probably see everyday. I also didn’t know it was naturally flame resistant. I would have thought the complete opposite, so that’s pretty cool. Thanks for teaching me something new today.

    I didn’t know that sheepskin was used specifically for pilot seats. I feel like I learn something new every day. I wouldn’t mind having my chair at work for my shoes made out of it. It sounds comfortable.
