Ticking Stripes

Ticking stripe fabric was developed as a sturdy, practical canvas-like fabric used for mattresses and pillows, heavy duty work aprons, coveralls and even tents. Today, ticking stripes can be woven or printed on various base cloths from thick upholstery for furniture to the sheerest cottons for draperies.

Create a Signature Look
Ticking stripes create a signature look, and are a favorite for interior designers to use for window coverings. Since they read like a neutral, ticking stripes pair nicely with florals, toiles or other bold stripes, rendering it a highly versatile fabric to fit in any decor.
The Possibilities are Endless
From narrow to wide, stripes are often the perfect fabric for roman shades, cushions, draperies, pillows and bedding… the possibilities are endless. How might you incorporate this versatile stripe into your next decorating project? Follow this link for more design inspiration from Schumacher.
