One of the finest and most durable decorative fabrics available on an on going basis at Norman S. Bernie Co. is mohair, now available in new colors and discounted prices.
Similar in appearance to velvet, another pile fabric, mohair actually is produced from the hair of Angora goats, 200,000 of whom reside in Texas, which produces 90% of the mohair "harvested" in the U.S.
At Norman S. Bernie Co., customers prefer mohair as an upholstery fabric because of its great durability and rich color range. Mohair also is noted for its excellent sound absorbent and flame-resistant qualities: In the 1950's-60's, theater seats typically were upholstered in mohair!
The 100% mohair fabric offered at Norman S. Bernie Co. even can be used as a drapery fabric, insulating against cold and heat, as well as sound.
And, though mohair fabrics for home decorating tend to be priced well over $100.00/yard, at Norman S. Bernie Co., all mohair fabrics have been discounted to better fit our customers' home decorating budgets.
