Mamma Mia Covers: The Difference Between Our Fabrics

Katie was enjoying her lazy Saturday afternoon when she spotted another stain on her couch upholstery. It was a bit of a bummer, as she rents this apartment, and every stain or broken piece equals bidding farewell to her security deposit. What could she do? Instantly become a more neat and organized person? Nice try, but not today. Maybe, cover the sofa with something to protect it from any mess and hiccups… Sounds like a plan!

Katie searched for a few minutes and felt trapped in a maze. So many options! So many sizes and materials. How could one expect her to figure out for herself what she needs with so little useful information available?

To all Katies, and all people struggling with slipcover choosing — Mamma Mia Covers is here. Let us take you on a short tour to show you the difference between our materials and cover everything you need to know to find a good slipcover. Shall we?

Mamma Mia Covers: The Basics

Here at Mamma Mia Covers, we believe that a good slipcover must spruce up and protect; it’s never a compromise when it comes to your furniture. That's why we offer 7 different collections to choose from. Let’s explore the differences between them.

Microfibra Collection

This thick, durable, yet soft material endures quite a lot of challenges that an active household can throw at it. It’s made with 100% polyester fibers, three times thinner than human hair, bonded together to form a thin yet heavy-duty material.

What do we recommend it for?

We recommend these slipcovers to anyone seeking a good level of protection and a stylish touch for their living room interior. The Microfibra collection is perfect for households with pets, kids, and high-traffic areas like living rooms, kids' rooms, offices, or kitchen spaces. One hidden feature our clients have told us about: cats don’t usually love the ruffled texture of Mamma Mia Covers, and tend to avoid clawing the furniture.

Maintenance

Maintenance is as easy as it could be — simply wash it in the washing machine. Opt for a gentle cycle, lower temperatures, and avoid bleaches or harsh chemicals. When done, just hang it to air-dry; the material structure allows water to evaporate quickly. To keep it clean from dust, pet hair, and debris, use a lint roller or a vacuum, just like you would on your regular couch.

Microfibra Printed collection

Microfibra Printed slipcovers are based on the Microfibra collection, featuring the same durable material but with subtle stylish prints and a calmer, more neutral palette.

What do we recommend it for?

Similar to regular Microfibra covers, the Microfibra Printed collection is designed to protect in style. Place these covers on your furniture in the living room or any other area with active flow to protect sofas and chairs from dust, dirt, accidental scratches, wear, and tear.

Maintenance

Recommendations remain the same: opt for a gentle cycle and cold temperatures for washing, and when you want to refresh it or clean any dry debris, use a vacuum or a lint roller.

Velvet Collection 

These slipcovers are designed to be touched. The Velvet plush texture reminds of a bumblebee's fur or a soft plushy cloud and has a subtle shine due to the surface structure. But don’t be fooled by its softness! Behind the plushy finish are the same 100% polyester fibers bonded together to create a durable material.

What do we recommend it for?

Just like the Microfibra collections, Velvet slipcovers can withstand the rigors of active household life with daily challenges like dust, dirty marks, and accidental spills. Yet, due to its plushy surface, it elevates the look of the furniture and gives it a classy appearance. Despite being more fluffy, the material works perfectly for homes with pets: hair is easy to clean.

Maintenance

As the materials are the same, the basic maintenance rules can be applied to Velvet collection covers. Use cold water and a gentle program in your washing machine without any harsh chemicals and bleaches that could disrupt the structure. Also, we recommend avoiding tumble dry, as the heat can affect the plushy bumblebee fur feature of the slipcover.

Mille Righe Collection 

The main feature that helps these covers stand out is the material weight. Mille Righe slipcovers are made from a 60% cotton and 40% polyester blend. This material is breathable, yet it provides unmatched dust protection. Due to the material weight, Mille Righe covers are perfect for furniture with slippery upholstery like leather or PU leather.

What do we recommend it for?

Leather furniture often requires protection from dirt, dust, tears, and cracks. These slipcovers add that timeless allure of classic style to any interior. Please note that Mille Righe is the only collection we would not suggest for homes with pets due to the material structure: active play and claws might not work well with this material composition.

Maintenance

Keep the cleaning routine nice and simple. Remove the dry debris with a vacuum or lint roller, and opt for cold temperatures and a gentle cycle to give the cover a quick refresh. Despite the fair amount of cotton in the blend, do not use harsh chemicals and avoid tumble drying.

Jacquard 3D Collection

This material is made of a more complex blend, featuring 60% cotton thread, 35% polyester, and 5% elastane, making this slipcover the only one with a more traditional texture without ruffles. The Jacquard 3D collection features timeless floral patterns to fit perfectly into any retro-inspired or classical interiors.

What do we recommend it for?

Despite its light and floral appearance, the Jacquard 3D slipcover can withstand challenges as well as our first material in the overview, Microfibra. The thick composition and the polyester in the blend allow this material to be soft-touch, water-repellent, and pet-friendly.

Maintenance

Maintain your cleaning routine effortlessly. Use a vacuum or lint roller to remove dry debris, and choose cold temperatures and a gentle cycle for a quick refresh. Despite containing a fair amount of cotton, refrain from using harsh chemicals and avoid tumble drying.

Fuco Velvet Collection

One of the most lush collections, due to the material's subtle shine and soft, plushy surface. Big ruffles create a unique texture, making your sofa serve as a focal point of the whole room. Fuco Velvet material is made out of 100% soft polyester, so it’s not only about the looks: these covers are made to protect in glam.

What do we recommend it for?

The ruffles, luxurious color palette, and plushy texture would match glamor-infused and maximalist interiors perfectly. The material's durability allows it to withstand all the challenges of active life: from wear and tear to accidental spills or sprinkles of pet hair. If you feel like adding a touch of sophistication to your room — Fuco Velvet is your choice.

Maintenance

We love our fabrics to be easy to maintain and care for. So, you can apply the same recommendations to Fuco Velvet slipcovers. Opt for cold water and a gentle washing program to give your cover a good cleaning session. To refresh its look quickly, use a lint roller or vacuum to remove dust, dry dirt particles, pet hair, and other debris.

Fuco Cotton Collection

This material is composed of 100% organic cotton. The Fuco Cotton slipcover collection features nature-inspired hues to complement the modern organic aesthetic and introduce more eco-friendly yet easy-to-use decor items to your home.

What do we recommend it for?

The cotton fabric used to manufacture Fuco Cotton slipcovers almost matches the polyester's durability. Despite the common beliefs, it is still capable of protecting your cozy couches and sectional sofas from wear, tear, dirt, dust, and pet hair. Fuco Cotton would make a perfect addition to any nature-inspired interiors and would be perfect for people with sensitive skin.

Maintenance

Recommendations are the same: opt for a gentle cycle and 30C/86F temperature for your wash, and when you want to refresh it or clean any dry debris — use a vacuum or a lint roller.

What do you need to know to find a slipcover for your home?

Now that we know all the details about the materials we use at Mamma Mia Covers, let’s explore what you need to consider to find your best slipcover match.

Start by assessing your needs.

Every household is different, and we respect that diversity. That's why we offer so many material and style options. But how do you know which fabric and color to choose?

Begin with identifying the problem you need to solve.

  • Does your sofa look tired, and you’d love to refresh it to feel more confident in your own home?
  • Has your sectional sofa become a focal point for all parties and now has more stains than stars in the sky?
  • Do you want to protect a couch in a rented home so you can get your deposit back?
  • Do your pets treat your armchair as a battleground, resulting in stains and scratch marks?

All of our materials are designed with protection features in mind. So, the main goal of this step is to choose between collections and find the best match for your style. Speaking of style...

Consider the Interior Style

These collections feature the most luxurious and soft plushy polyester with a subtle shine. Opt for slipcovers in rich jewel tones to introduce more drama or make a statement with texture.
