Saddler - Upholsterer - Trimmer

Saddlers traditionally produce horse riding saddles and articles. Over the centuries, however, the product range has expanded to include vehicle upholstery in cars, trucks, buses and boats. In the modern world, this occupation is called 'upholstery'. The work of an upholsterer is not restricted to providing furniture with fabric or leather covers. An upholsterer must also be able to provide seats with new padding, springs and webbing. Upholstery work also extends to automotive interiors, while the occupation of recovering car seats, carpets and other soft furnishings is called a 'trimmer', 'coach trimmer' or quite simply 'automotive upholsterer'.
