Campervan fabric & upholstery – how do you choose?

At Love Campers we love exploring new products and finding materials that reflect our style and values as well as work brilliantly for campervan living. Campervan upholstery fabric has to be hardwearing, stain resistant and comfortable against the skin. And of course, it’s just as important that it looks absolutely gorgeous!

We are dedicated to safety and sustainability in both our work practices and products, so we choose the suppliers we work with very carefully in order to meet these high values. We are currently working with Chieftain and Warwick, the creators of exclusive furnishing fabrics for domestic and commercial interiors.

Green credentials

On top of making sure that all our fabrics are of the highest quality we also work hard to establish that our chosen suppliers work to a high ethical standard. At Love Campers, we are thoughtful about our long-term impact on the environment and are currently looking into different ways to offset our carbon footprint.

Adding style and character to your camper

Your chosen campervan fabric for seating and cushion covers will add personality to your van, creating a pop of colour that compliments the overall look of your camper. At a small extra cost we can ask our colleagues to create complimentary cushions to accentuate your seating fabric.

We will be launching the full range in the coming months via our members area.

The Ravel & Carousel ranges

Ravel and Carousel are highly engineered fabrics which are suitable for the most demanding of environments.

Chieftain partner with Aquaclean, which means that these fabrics require only water for cleaning most stains. Both Ravel and Carousel feature Aquaclean™ Technology.

Aquaclean™ has also been treated with Safefront® Protective Shield and will not support the growth of bacteria.

With both a waterproof backing cloth and a water-repellent fabric surface, Ravel will stand up to tough conditions. Ideal for upholstery in high-traffic areas this modern fabric will withstand the toughest of conditions. Ravel’s Teflon coating is also water repellent .

Safety is of the highest importance

Our suppliers carry out flame retardancy tests for their fabrics. On top of this, our suppliers at Cheiftain fabrics create vinyl with antimicrobial properties. You can find out more about their techniques on their website.

As stated on the Chieftain website: Ravel fabrics “will not support microbial or fungal growth including E Coli and MRSA, or the growth of Coronavirus.”

“Aquaclean™ has been treated with Safefront® protective shield and will not support the growth of bacteria, or the Coronavirus.”
