What You'll Get


Textile patterns can awaken feelings of nostalgia, calling to mind a favorite childhood blanket or the ratty piles of saliva that it turned into. Make better memories with this Groupon.

$20 for $40 Worth of Vintage Fabric

A collection of over 5 tons of vintage fabrics enchant textile aficionados with items such as 1920s–1960s 36" cotton prints ($12–$26 per yd.), vintage bark cloth and shantungs ($28– $85 per yd.), and mid-century modern cotton canvas, broadcloth, and linen ($26–$38 per yd.).

Urban Burp

Far more than an emporium of colorful textile patterns, Urban Burp holds over 5 tons of vintage fabric dating back to the early 20th century, collecting original vintage threads that weave memory and nostalgia into their very fabric. The studio takes its unusual name from the intense experience of recognition that seeing and touching a piece of familiar pattern can bring. "All that emotion has been shoved down into the lower chakras and all of a sudden it takes one piece of fabric to bring you back to that place," owner Electra Skilandat told The San Francisco Chronicle. She continues to elicit that response with bolts of cloth decorated with the floral designs and abstract art of the 1920s, or the bold color mixtures and fractal patterns that were popular in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

Skilandat traces her love affair with textile design back to her childhood in Boston, where her mother lovingly hand-crafted all of her clothes for school and play. Over the years, Electra amassed a collection of over 1,000 bolts of fabric and experience in interior decor. After the death of her only son, she rediscovered her creative instincts, opening the fabric shop with upholstery and drapery services that would precede Urban Burp's stunning display of warp and weft. As guests peruse the studio's ample supply of original vintage pictorial and patterned designs, sewing patterns, and notions, Skilandat unfurls her decades of wisdom during interior decor consultations.
