Renewing, restoring and re-upholstering your furniture for the next generation is always a much better idea than buying something new - no matter how nice that sofa in ‘The Big Sofa Warehouse’ is.
But when you choose to restore your furniture, have you ever considered where the new fabric has come from? Where has it been? Where was it manufactured? Who handled it?
The sad reality is that fabric isn’t always produced in a way that is kind to the planet, kind to the factory workers, or kind to you as the end consumer. This is why we were delighted to discover Offset Warehouse.
Offset Warehouse fabrics benefit the people that make them, the people that handle them, and the planet. The fabrics are all handpicked by the Offset team, who only sell the most beautiful, handcrafted and ethically sourced textiles. This ensures the safety and livelihoods of the farmers, the weavers and everyone else handling the fabrics are well looked after, along with the environments they are produced in.
Check out www.offsetwarehouse.com for all the gorgeous fabrics. I still can’t decide which one to reupholster my chair in that I’ve got waiting in the workshop.
