Bringing new life to special pieces
Along with quality building, we care about preserving quality. A well made frame, can last for centuries!
Our approach to re-upholstery is unique in that we don't just patch and recover the pieces, but we fully strip it down to the bare bones and rebuild it using original techniques along with our natural and organic materials. Pricing will vary depending on the piece(s) (size, design, details).
We start by stripping current materials to reveal the frame so that we can check to see if it is worth saving. If it is made from solid wood, it usually is. Then we replace all materials with the natural materials we use to produce our own furniture. We make sure the spring system is perfect, we rebuild the edge with manila hemp and add layers of organic cotton batting, before covering it with our local felted wool as fire retardant,
We rebuild the cushions using organic Dunlop latex wrapped in certified organic wool from Germany. The base underneath the seat cushion receives the same treatment. We then rebuild the back cushions with locally processed Cheviot and Dorset breed wool filled with kapok. All covers underneath the upholstery fabric is organic cotton/hemp muslin. All flat and wooden parts of the sofa are covered in felted wool. And finally, we upholster in the eco fabric of your choice.
