About Us

MastaPlasta was created in the UK by two designers, Donna and Stephan. When they created a furniture line, one of the most frequent questions they were asked was: how do I repair a hole in my sofa? They soon realised sofas were being thrown on the rubbish heaps – or sometimes just left to litter the streets and countryside  – when the only thing wrong with them was a hole or rip in the upholstery. And no wonder, when reupholstery can cost as much as a new sofa and when repair options seem messy, costly, time-consuming and often come with no guarantees. Their belief that you don’t have to throw away your sofa, that there was an alternative every bit as good as reupholstery inspired them to design this easy, instant repair patch.
