A more traditional chair slipcover is hand sewn by a slipcover professional or upholstery shop. Hand crafted slipcovers were originally made by tapestry weavers and were used to protect the furnishings of the very rich. But during the 18th and 19th century chair slipcovers became a fashion accessory all on their own. As slipcovers for chairs became the vogue, slipcover makers, often immigrants from Europe would go to the homes of their wealthy clients and measure and cut out fabrics on site. Then the men would return to their homes or shops and have their womenfolk do the actual sewing.
Chair slipcover makers were often nicknamed "summer time millionaires" due to the amount of money that could be made in the slipcover industry. These artisans are all almost gone. The few remaining shops and designers that do custom slipcovers often are even more expensive than their predecessors. Another factor to consider besides color is the actual fabric that a chair slipcover can be made from. You can choose either natural fiber fabrics like linen, cotton or ramie. Or work with a synthetic fabric made from acrylic, nylon or polyester. The best fabric is a blend of natural and man-made materials for durabilityFree Web Content, ease of cleaning and shape and fit. As you can see selecting the right slipcover for a chair is not as difficult as you may think. By deciding earlier on what style you can afford to buy: ready-made or tailor-made plus looking closely at your lifestyle; you can choose a chair slip cover that will last for years.
