Welcome to the Ministry of Upholstery Fabric Collection

Welcome to the Ministry of Upholstery Fabric Collection

A carefully curated palette of colourful and stunning patterned fabrics, designed by experts specifically with upholstery in mind.

A few reasons why you might want to choose a fabric from the Ministry of Upholstery collection:
We have been teaching upholstery at our Manchester school for over 10 years. During that time, we have been privy to an amazing plethora of different fabric designs, colours and types. We have now drawn on all this knowledge, as well as our combined wealth or upholstery skill, to curate this collection. We print everything in-house on the latest digital printing technology and each design is scaled and coloured with upholstery and current interior trends in mind.
Not only that but we have selected the best base cloth we can find on which to print. We print onto a beautifully soft, yet hard-wearing velvet, which is upholstery grade and suitable for sofas, headboards, footstools and more. We have spent several years printing and trialling fabric at the Ministry and are now proud to release our collection to the public, confident that our fabric is suitable for every upholstery job, printed and quality checked with care and attention and will look beautiful on your furniture. From vivid brights to dark and sultry, our range of printed, decorative designs are suitable for all domestic upholstery.
We use a high-density sublimation ink, providing vivid and clear colours. The ink is permanently fixed on the fabric by sublimation at high temperatures.
Our printing is eco-conscious and our base cloth has been certified by the worldwide recognised OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 as being free of harmful chemicals. The ink has attained the “ECO PASSPORT” certification from OEKO-TEX®, so you can work with our fabric, safe in the knowledge that you are not handling harmful chemicals.
Unlike cheaper base cloths, ours is designed for upholstery in mind and therefore suitable for all upholstery and can even be deep buttoned with beautiful results.
Our base cloth has a rub test of 50,000 rubs, making it suitable for even everyday use.
The colours are vibrant and won’t fade over time, our printed velvet can even be washed on a cool wash.
Thank you for browsing our fabric collection. Please note that our fabric printing is on summer shutdown between 11th July and 5th Sep for orders over 1 metre continuous length (multiple 1 metre panels are ok) and between 20th July and 5th Sep for any orders, including samples.
We have spent several years perfecting the print process, ensuring that the print is as far down the pile as possible, thus minimising the amount of white base cloth you see when the pile separates on pleats or around piping.
Each design can be scaled to suit your needs. If you like a design but want the repeat to be bigger or smaller, just get in touch. For a small admin fee, we can change any design to suit your requirements.
We can provide complimentary or contrasting plains in any colour. So perhaps you want a patterned fabric from our collection for the top of your stool and a contrast or complimentary plain for the border, we can pick, match and print any colour from any of our designs.
All our fabric is fire retardant to cigarette and match and thus suitable for all domestic upholstery.
Up to 4 samples available for free so you can see the vibrancy and quality and feel the luxury velvet for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
