Moran has an extensive range of fabrics that are specifically selected for use
on quality upholstery. These include microfibres. These are faux suede which
should NOT be treated as leathers, but fabrics. These microfibres have Teflon
coatings which guards against accidental spills and stains.
The harmful effects of sunlight as well as some household lighting may cause
fading and fibre damage. So it is important to keep drapes closed whenever
possible. Rotating and reversing cushions also helps protect your investment.
Some drying methods make certain fabrics more susceptible to fading.
Pilling can be expected on some fabrics and is not considered a fabric fault.
Fibre pills can be removed using an electronic pilling machine. Lightly rotate
the pilling machine over the affected area. Repeat if required.
Dust accumulates on furniture daily and may become abrasive causing accelerated
wear and tear. Vacuum weekly to fortnightly using the appropriate upholstery
attachment on a low suction.
Rotate or reverse cushions regularly. This evens out usage and wear to minimise
“favourite chair syndrome”.
Pet fur is particularly oily and can easily cause permanent discolouration.
Claws, belt buckles, heels, keys, etc can cut and pull fibres.
Sitting on the cushion edges or the arms causes premature wearing of fabric as
well as the inner componentary. It also causes undue stress on seams, piping and

To keep leather furniture looking good for many years to come, the cover must
be cleaned and conditioned or revitalised on a regular basis using only
recommended products. The right care and attention makes a big difference to the
leather’s on-going appearance and performance. Leather furniture will improve
with age giving a special lived-in look that is one of the most desirable
aspects of the best leather.
Only Moran approved products should be used as general purpose cleaners can
easily cause cracking, remove colour and make leather sticky. Look for Moran
Leather Care kits in department or specialty stores.
Generally speaking leather is easy to care for. There are just a few things
to avoid if possible to add to its longevity.
- It’s best to avoid exposing furniture to direct sunlight or heat sources as
this can accelerate fading or drying out the leather which causes cracking.
- Dust does wear leather down considerably. Leather requires dusting and
vacuuming regularly – around fortnightly.
- Try and avoid pets scratching or soiling leather furniture. Their fur contains
natural oils that can discolour leather. Studded belts or jeans can also easily
- Natural body oils and perspiration, exacerbated by medications and
chemotherapy discolour leather, particularly around areas such as the headrest
