How we make it

 

SCP’s own specialist upholstery factory, is nestled in the flatlands of Norfolk. It’s made up of a small dedicated team of pattern cutters, seamstresses, upholsterers, product developers and designers. They all work closely together to create each individual piece of furniture that leaves the factory. The process of making upholstery is quite a precise art. Once designs are completed, a frame is made. This frame has a lifetime guarantee, it is traditionally glued and screwed together using FSC approved European hardwood. Once this is made, zig-zig springs are applied and the frame is upholstered by hand with natural fibres, animal hair and wool. The factory uses traditional techniques in this process, little having changed in hundred of years, except an improvement in the tools. Finally, fabric is applied and depending on the piece, feather cushions are made. Some of the SCP designs need to be button upholstered, or hand pleated, or both, they require extra attention and time. All of this endeavor results in a very lovingly made piece of furniture, one that is fully sustainable, in both the materials used to make it and in the retention of the skills required to do so.
