Name of fabric

I want to make my own cushions but I cannot find out where to purchase the white polyester type of material that manufacturers use for making cushion pad inners. Any ideas please, or what is it called.

Fabric for cushion inners
by: EJ

Hello Pat, Thank you for your query, I think it is a type of polypropylene that is breathable. Manufacturers buy this wholesale.
Other companies use poly/cotton or some use good quality 100% cotton fabric.
It just depends on how sturdy you want to make them and what you will be filling them with, as you will need feather proof ticking if using down and feathers.
I use a medium weight polyester cotton such as curtain lining for ones I make.
Hope this helps and they turn out well.
