One of our all time favorites, this bull denim fabric in Black Bean is 100% cotton, USA Made and preshrunk. And that color! Deep, dark and almost-but-not-quite black, this rich hue is wonderful on its own, but also pairs extremely well with many of our other premium cotton bull denims.
What Makes Bull Denim so Popular?
Think of your favorite pair of blue jeans. Durable. Comfy. Who needs more? And for apparel, this is the stuff. Jackets, hats, overalls, and those super-popular pants so well known on Instagram. Yes to all, but let's not stop there...
Upholstery Tour de Force
We admire makers and upholstery shops across the U.S. and beyond who make slipcover magic. And one of the most popular fabrics for slipcovers is our cotton bull denim. Just like those favorite jeans, slipcover makers and their customers love the long-lasting nature and sheer comfort of bull denim. Functionally elegant and extremely practical, this material will always be a top choice for slipcovers. Beyond re-covering furnishings, this fabric is ideal for upholstering chairs, recliners, sofa, love seats, accent pieces, etc...
How to Be Strong and Soft
Bull denim's tough 3x1 twill construction give it great durability while retaining the soft feel everyone loves. This "wonder fabric" is ideal for sewing projects like draperies, curtains, pillow covers, accent pillows, totes, handbags, bag linings and much, much more.
