We stopped in our tracks when we saw Urban Burp's sign outside that reads "Rare Vintage Fabrics." We quickly made a detour for their door and spent at least an hour talking textiles with Electra Skilandat, the shop's owner. Electra is as vibrant as her inventory, and her passion for fabric is seen through her shop. From Art Deco to Mid-century Modern, Urban Burp has a pattern (or texture!) for everyone.
We absolutely fell in love with this hand-printed fabric. Our only gripe? The sheen. Thankfully Electra chimed in with "Not a problem! Just give it one wash and the sheen is gone."
Unlike most other retail fabric stores, Urban Burp has extremely reasonable prices. The majority of fabrics that we fell in love with were priced 20% below retail. Electra also made it very clear that she aims to please and is willing to work out a deal with any individual client.
In addition to carrying vintage fabric, Urban Burp also carries new fabric, recycled fabric, and also offers custom upholstery.
