The Old City covers were lost after I placed my order, but the shop owner sweetly offered a Love Park cover in its place (which is also beautiful). I gladly accepted and when I received the order, she had also thrown in a pillow form for the slip up. It's a shame the shop is closing—beautiful items and wonderful service!

About

Urban Works Textiles

Urban Works Textiles was established in May 2013 from my 400 sq. ft studio apartment. Just eight months later, I outgrew the space and moved to my first studio location in South Philadelphia. Soon after I landed my first retail store, Philadelphia Independents, which opened in Old City, Philadelphia in May 2014.

In January 2015 Urban Works Textiles was awarded the #GIRLBOSS Foundation grant, which enabled us to buy a large format fabric printer. Our growing customer base and demand for product proved that we needed a more efficient way to deliver our handmade items, and this was the way to make it happen! Our fabric printer allows us to print everything in house, oversee every detail, and ensure that our fabrics are 100% made in USA.

We now operate out of our large studio in the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia. Urban Works Textiles can now be found in over 10 stores across the country.
