Durable Cleanable Sustainable Performance Fabrics
You, too, are probably dreaming of a carefree sofa, but chances are that your children may not share that idea. Or perhaps you love having dinner or a glass of wine on your couch, even though you already know you are going to spill that food or drink?
Vivalife performance fabrics are here to help. After years of research and development, we are able to produce specially blended yarns that make it easy to get rid of inevitable stains and spills, using a simple damp cloth. Next to being beautiful, soft and colourful, our new Belgian & American technology guarantees a revolutionary fabric as well.
With Vivalife, you can enjoy your furniture. You can live, love, eat and play – it will be there to start all over again the next day.

We care about your children and therefore do not use any PFC chemicals to produce Vivalife fabrics. Our soft-touch yarns turn your furniture into playful bouncy castles by day and snuggly places by night.
Vivalife performance fabrics are exceptionally strong and durable, developed to last a very long time. In other words, they are perfectly party proof and can endure a splash of red wine or a drop of pizza sauce.
How to clean our Vivalife performance fabrics? Always treat stains promptly. At first, remove any excess dirt or liquid with a paper towel. If the stain has already dried, gently brush off any excess material, then dab softly with a damp cloth or sponge until it disappears using the method described below.
Caution: Make sure to always use the least aggressive cleaning agent first. Repeat with a stronger product in case the stain hasn’t disappeared after the first attempt. If possible, put a clean cloth on the back of the stained area to absorb excess moisture.
For less severe stains
Add a mild detergent to lukewarm water. Take a clean colourless cloth, wet the stain until damp with the cleaning solution and gently rub the stained area. Do not overrub. Repeat until the stain is removed. Afterwards, rinse the fabric with a damp cloth to remove the cleaning solution. Air dry.
For more stubborn stains
Use a stain removing product containing hydrogen peroxide(*). Spray the stain and allow the product time to soak in for a couple of minutes, then gently rub the stained area with a clean cloth. Repeat if necessary. Afterwards, rinse the fabric thoroughly with a damp cloth to remove the cleaning solution. Air dry.
For the toughest stains
Use a simple cleaning solution of 75 ml of cleaning agent containing bleach and 5 litres of water. Never use straight bleach (*). Take a clean colourless cloth and wet until damp with the cleaning solution and gently rub the stained area. Repeat until the stain is gone. Afterwards, rinse the fabric very thoroughly with a damp cloth.
USA: Mix 1 ounce of water based detergent, 1 ounce of bleach and 1/2 gallon of water together. Never use straight bleach (*). Take a clean colourless cloth and wet until damp with the cleaning solution and gently rub the stained area. Repeat until the stain is gone. Afterwards, rinse the fabric very thoroughly with a damp cloth.
(*) Hydrogren peroxide or bleach won’t harm the fabric, but it could damage your clothing if not rinsed and dried correctly.
