silk mis a thinner upholstry so I would deffinatly say that it is not a good idea with kids but there are many diffrent grade fabrics that are available with the same feel but that are more durable. You can also pay extra money at most stores for a warranty on fabrics so if went with silk purchase

Silk is not the best fabric to have, especially with young children. Silk is very hard to clean, it holds stains easily, and you must use special cleaners to remove. You may want to wait until the kids are older before puchasing the silk sofa.

Silk upholstery is surprisingly durable but its real drawback is that it is not at all easy to clean it. Spillages or stains will ruin the piece and so beware!
