Ticking Fabrics


Ticking is a tightly woven fabric that was traditionally used to cover pillows and mattresses as its weave prevented feathers from poking through the material. Since its production, it has expanded its application into deck chairs, upholstery, blinds and curtains due to its durability and ease to work with.

It’s widely recognised for its classic striped design, bringing a touch of elegance to any project it’s used for. For theatre purposes, its timeless aesthetic makes it a perfect choice for adding to props and stage centre pieces. We stock two of the classical styles of Ticking for staging applications, giving you a choice between black and white striped, or navy and white striped. Both of these promise to bring a stylish aesthetic to your project however they are used.
