The Revolution Fabric Story

The best upholstery fabric

In 2014, we started our mission to make a performance fabric without PFC chemistry.

STI(Specialty Textiles, Inc.), the makers of Revolution, first introduced Revolution to the furniture industry in March 2014. Revolution was the first PFC chemical-free performance fabric to hit the marketplace and was the only one made entirely in the United States after much of the textile business went overseas.


Revolution is perfect for families who want a beautiful fabric that is stain-resistant but doesn’t have a huge price tag.
