Rated 5 out of 5 by DebnNorthCarolina Definitely upholstery fabric; really beautiful
Although Fabric.com's description states this is a sateen finished fabric, I don't agree. It does have a subtle shine and is absolutely beautiful.
It's definitely upholstery fabric; excellent for a pillow or recovering furniture that will be admired vs. used by children, pets, etc.
Fabric.com suggests using this for a tote bag. I would never use this for a tote bag; it's too fragile and would never hold up as a tote bag.
The stamen is machine embroidered, so it's not going to hold up to much use. I would suggest you use this fabric for something that will be admired, with little to no wear, like draperies. This would make excellent heavy weight draperies.
