All jeans have practical pockets, including KLIPPAN sofa cover. This one sits on the side and is perfect for storing the remote control, a mobile phone or other small things that you want close at hand.
By using recycled demim, we can save 27,000 litres of water and reduce our carbon footprint by 67% – per cover. A considerable reduction compared to industry standard manufacturing.
Extra covers to alternate with mean it's easy to give both your sofa and room a new look.
For us, worn-out clothes are a resource that is destined for greater things. Like using recycled denim, equivalent to 2 pairs of worn-out jeans, to make KLIPPAN sofa cover.
In Europe, about 500 million pairs of jeans are sold every year and the average European has 7 pairs of jeans. Less than 1% of these are recycled when they’re worn out. What massive potential!
The cover is easy to keep clean since it is removable and can be machine washed.
The cover is made of 40% recycled denim mixed with 60% new cotton from sustainable sources.
This cover is made of 100% cotton weave, a hardwearing natural material that’s comfortable to sit on.
To manufacture this sofa cover, we’ve used approximately 2,200 litres of water – from raw material to finished product, which means a reduction of 93% compared to conventional manufacturing.
No harmful substances or processes such as potassium permanganate spray or stone washing have been used in manufacturing.

More COVER OPTIONS for grown-ups, pleeeaaase!!!!!Verified ReviewerGreat budget-friendly sofa ideal for small rented flats like mine. I so wish Ikea would revamp the cover options with something a bit more sophisticated and suitable for grown-ups, too. Please bring a dark green soft velvet cover!!!3
Leg broke during installationVerified ReviewerThe wood is really fragile, and it broke when we tried to flip the chair back up after installing the legs.1
Good colour and comfortable!Verified ReviewerGood colour and comfortable!4
Classic Klippan!Verified ReviewerGood to seat3
Very good value.Verified ReviewerVery good value.5
Rubbish coverVerified ReviewerMost disappointing item I have ever bought from Ikea. The settee itself is fine but the cover is a nightmare to fit. We have tried our best but it still doesn't fit well - I have now bought a throw to cover it over - not ideal.3
Bought as come with cheapVerified ReviewerBought as come with cheap replacement covers as my cats have ruined so many sofas. Is fairly comfortable with few extra cushions for back. Covers are amazing, cat hairs wipe off easily and they gave hardly touched it. Where they have snagged it
it easily popped back in with fine needle. Have a spare cover but probably won't use for a while🤞
Quick and fairly easy to put together. Re-tightened straps after a week.5
Small sofa for kitchenVerified ReviewerIdeally sized to be located at the end of the kitchen looking out over the garden. Best seat in the house!5
Not like it used to be....Verified ReviewerI bought my first Klippan in 2004 and it was a great sofa, soooo comfortable. After many changes in life I decided to come back to old favourite this year (2021). Unfortunately it’s not the same quality. No full cover- just removable cover. Nothing at the bottom of the sofa. It feels different too, not so comfortable.3
Our take on cotton
We use cotton in many of our products, from sofas and cushions to bed linen and mattresses. It is a soft, durable and renewable fibre that breathes and is good at absorbing moisture.
All these great qualities make cotton one of our most important materials, but it isn’t without its challenges, much having to do with conventional farming methods that negatively impact the environment and poor working conditions for farmers.
With our size and production volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry.
Working together to drive change
Each year, IKEA uses around 0.5 percent of all cotton grown around the world. This may not seem like a lot, but the number is big enough to drive change in the industry.
For many years, we have been working with partners and stakeholders globally to transform conventional large-scale cotton farming and set social and environmental standards for cotton production. As an example, we helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who runs the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Today, more than 110,000 farmers have adopted more sustainable farming practices within IKEA projects.
Ensuring compliance throughout the value chain
All IKEA products are produced in accordance with the IKEA IWAY Standard, our Supplier Code of Conduct. It sets out the minimum environmental and social standards expected from our suppliers, including compliance with local laws. We do not accept any form of forced labour, child labour or treatments in breach of our supply chain requirements.
Our cotton teams across the globe ensure that all cotton used in IKEA products meets the demands of compliance in our supply chain. By having teams on the ground in areas where it has previously been challenging to work responsibly, we can challenge the traditional ways of working and improve the industry.
If we discover that we are acting in places where we cannot ensure our requirements are being met, we follow-up on the ground and drive change.
What is cotton?
Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibres. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilisers and water.
