Read all about numnah quilted fabric and how it's used across the different industries.

A quilted fabric is a three-layered fabric, all stitched together, with two cotton outer layers and a fibre based filling in the middle. Quilted fabric is used for the purpose of insulation and protection. The ability of quilting to come in a variety of different weights and thicknesses makes it a versatile material for many applications.

Popular applications for quilted fabrics are outdoor jackets, handbags, bed linen and saddle pads.
