Urban Sprawl is a small family run business making cushions, cushion covers and tailored loose sofa covers and chair covers. Now based in Leyton in North East London, but originally from the garment trade and with a small factory in Hackney , we branched out into home furnishings in 1996. We soon found we liked loose covers and cushions better than tailoring, but still pride ourselves on trying to finish everything very neatly, more like clothing than upholstery. We use zips, not “touch and close” tape, and overlock seams inside to prevent fraying in the wash. Even the insides of our cushion covers are normally overlocked.
Amongst our small, but talented staff are our design technician, Amanda, who might come and measure your cushions or covers - -
