FROM OUR ARCHIVES

Singleton is a trading division of Porter Valmic Limited, the leading supplier of upholstery materials to the UK furniture industry.

Our roots in Manchester go back to 1889. This was the year John Singleton started a small family business that sold a variety of coverings for chairs and couches. In the early years these would have included embroidered saddle bag panels, tapestries and damasks.

One hundred and twenty-six years later, Singleton is recognised throughout the furniture industry as one of the most trusted and innovative sources of upholstery fabrics in the UK. Our fine collections of chenilles, flat weaves and velvets combine technical excellence with craftsmanship that has stood the test of time.

Singleton’s business operates from three locations. There are two depots located at Chadderton in Manchester and at Long Crendon in Buckinghamshire and a sales office located at Waltham Abbey in Essex. At each site we have an experienced and dedicated team who ensure we provide a first class personal service. This includes technical advice, samples and prompt deliveries. There is a trade counter facility at each depot.

We offer a wide choice of top quality domestic upholstery fabrics and a large collection of fabrics and vinyls suitable for contract use. In addition we stock a wide range of upholstery components and sundries. These include various grades of foam, polyester waddings, fillings, springs and platform cloths.
