Upholsterers & Trimmers
The companies listed on this page repair and replace fabric and leather upholstery, carpets and door panels. Trimmers and upholsters tend to be small businesses working our of workshops who deal mostly with the trade, therefore don't have web sites, so we have listed telephone numbers, but don't be put off if there is no address, this usually means that 'craftsman' works from home and visits are by appointment only.

Important Note - This page contains links to companies that we feel may be of use to our customers and patrons of this website. However, unless noted, we have not ourselves used these companies or received feedback from our customers about their reliability or standard of work. For companies that are recommended, see Our Directory
We welcome feedback about any listed companies.


J. Cooper Car Trimmers
This Kent based car trimmers has been recommended to us by one of our customers, who is having them work on the leather seats in his classic Mercedes (we hope to show you the photos in the near future). Cooper's have over 30 years experience in car trimming and they list hoods and convertibles as one of their specialties - which makes them worthy of mention in any address book.

And of course, they also do the usual magic you would expect from a car trimmers such as custome re-trims and re-upholstering vintage cars in leather. Their Gallery is well worth a look.
