A & B Upholstery is a family upholstery and textile business located in the heart of Derbyshire with over 30+ years’ experience. The business is owned by Angela & Ian who both have a wealth of experience in the textile and upholstery trade.
The business services haven’t always specialised within the upholstery market. From humble beginnings in 1997 and trading under the name of FAAB Clothing Ltd, the business grew and had orders in excess of 150,000 units of ladies nightwear sets with Ann Summers. Following successful growth, the business relocated from the birthplace of author DH Lawrence in Eastwood, to the former war time Aristoc hosiery factory in Langley Mill, Derbyshire. From there the business continued to expand and employed a medium-large workforce. At one stage we acquired over 9,000 top hat and tail coats! Following the financial downtown in 2008, FAAB Clothing’s services were eventually wound down to pursue new markets under a new name, A & B Upholstery Ltd.
The business first specialised in meeting the static caravan re-upholstery market with multiple contracts to static caravan renovators and resellers. All our products & furnishings are lovingly handcrafted with upmost care and attention in our new fully equipped workshop in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. With a free made to measure design and consultancy service and with a huge choice of designer fabrics to choose from. It wasn’t long before our quality services and products expanded from re-upholstering static caravans to where we are today.
We now specialise in meeting the upholstery, curtains, blinds and other soft furnishings requirements for both commercial and domestic markets. From caravans to train seats we craft for all. Whether that’s made to measure elegant curtains for your living room, re-upholstering a cosy pub or even producing thousands of designer dog coats. Our experience, expertise and quality service has given us a large repeat customer base. We never pass on bad quality; your project is our project.
We’re passionate about eliminating & reducing waste. Our hearts are in repairing, re-upholstery, upcycling and sustainability. We like to keep ourselves busy and occasionally craft new life into tired old items for our online store – have a browse, you won't find these items anywhere else. We’re very friendly and here to help make your dream project a reality, message us or give us a call. We've worked on single seat cushions to a whole hotel soft furnishings refurb, we treasure all jobs no matter how big or small.
