Horsehair has been present in the human living environment for centuries. It is used for various purposes, namely for the production of the mattress and furniture upholstery.
The best horsehair is obtained from the mane and tail of the horse. Like hair, horsehair has small scales on the surface that face in the same direction. Untreated hair likes to escape through the fabric.
To prevent it from falling out, the hair is mechanically and thermally treated. After cleaning, the strands are twisted into braids and exposed to steam. Due to the heat, the hairs permanently curl, which prevents them from escaping out of the liner.
