Ticking is the material that holds a mattress together. Mattress Ticking fabric is a tightly woven heavy cotton fabric. The tight weave makes it ideal to use as a mattress. Feather pillows use this fabric because the density of the fabric keeps the feathers from working their way out of the pillow. Fabric ticking is very durable. It can be used as a covering for upholstery. Although traditionally used for mattresses and pillows, the material has found other uses. Such as serving as a backing for quilts, coverlets, and other bedding. Ticking is a tightly woven fabric, originally to prevent down feathers from poking through the fabric. Ticking is no longer restricted to mattresses. It has found uses in interior decorating styles. Used to evoke a homespun or industrial aesthetic. Modern uses for ticking include furniture upholstery, cushion covers, tablecloths, decorative basket liners, and curtains.
So, it is not just used to hold a mattress together. The ticking has to be made of quality material so it will last for several years. Mattress ticking is made from cotton. The fabric must be breathable and anti static. Only a cotton will meet this criteria. Also used to make traditional pillows.
