Eco-Friendly Upholstery

Because we care about our planet and landfill, we strive to be environmentally friendly wherever possible in the upholstery services we provide.
How can you help the planet we live in?
By re-upholstering your furniture, you have taken your eco-friendly first step.

Did you know Britons throw away more than 300,000 tonnes of reusable furniture every year?
Each year in the UK, we throw away thousands of tonnes of sofas into landfill, most furniture frames are in perfectly good condition, but the effect we are having on the environment should make us think again about our sofas when you think they’re past their sell by date.
Due to the big and cumbersome size, sofas can be very expensive to dispose of; sending unnecessary furniture to landfill is not economically or environmentally viable anymore.
Furniture recycling is an environmentally friendly and low-cost alternative to landfill. 
Once your sofa has lost its padding and looks a bit threadbare it’s time for up-cycling, if the frame underneath is solid it can be easily re-upholstered giving you a new and unique piece of furniture unlike your average sofa on the high street.
Cushion fillings made from recycled plastic
Sounds crazy, but these fillings are beautifully soft, non-allergenic and machine Washable. 
Made from recycled PET plastic water bottles they look and feel similar to a top quality polyester cushion pad, they have a better strength rating and will last for much longer. For every 1kg of recycled plastic fibre used, you save more than 70 water bottles from landfill.
Re-Constitued Foam
Reconstituted foam (sometimes known as chip foam or crumb foam) is a distinctive foam made from offcuts and remnants after cutting large foam blocks. Rather than dispose of this waste product to landfill, the remnants are compacted and bonded together to form comfortable seat pads .
Fabrics made from recycled plastic
We can provide fabrics made from recycled plastic plastic bottles.
How can fabric be made from re-cycled fabric?
The PET plastic is crushed into tiny flakes, these flakes are then melted and softened into small pellet chips.
The chips are melted again, and filtered and spun into threads which are transformed in to yarn for fabrics.
Upholstery Fabrics
When possible keep it natural; wool, cotton and linen is a natural by-product providing beautiful resiliant and hard wearing surfaces.
We supply a large range of plain and patterned natural fabrics in a broad range of colours.
