The Cutting Team
The cutting team is headed up by Eddie, a man that likes to get straight to the point - of his sharp and trusty scissors. Every single piece of material is checked for imperfections, before the team prepare the patterns, measure, mark-up and individually hand cut each piece of leather.
The Sewing Team
With Head seamstress Janet at the helm, these are the ladies that bring it all together and hold everything in. From thread to needle to leather or fabric, sewing is a physical skill as well as an art-form that demands care and patience. With 64 years of collective experience; their sharp beady eyes constantly check for detail to ensure the hallmark of beautiful, skilled needlework sits proudly on all our furniture.
The Upholstery Team
Andy and Paul are upholstery masters. Mainly responsible for that classic deep buttoned look clearly associated with the Chesterfield style, these men know how to get the tension just right, the buttons deep enough, and the comfort factor spot on. Years and years of experience; yes, nigh on 30 years each, means these guys have practically grown up right here in the workshop!
The Finishing Team
Whether it's hand antiquing, testing comfort or hand-tacking stud lines, these are the boys that finally make sure everything is exactly as it should be. Nothing gets past these experts until your Chesterfield is perfect in every way. Only when they're satisfied that everything is as it should be, will it leave their hands and our workshop, to journey to your home.
