Award winning work (Concours)

Paul Richards started life as a car interior trimmer from a home workshop in 2006, with the company being founded in 2008. Paul has always believed in personally greeting everyone that comes through the door and working with them to achieve their vision. In fact, until recent times the majority of Paul's business came from word of mouth. “I didn’t have time to work on a website so I relied on reputation gained from previous projects, and occasional networking at shows and other events.” Classic car upholstery is a highly skilled craft and the seats, for example, often have to be built from the frames up due to years of deterioration.

This includes repainting the frames, cutting/shaping the foam and any woodwork required. We are lucky to have a large collection of templates and original parts in our stores. Once the preparation work is complete the interior can be upholstered. We believe in using only the very best materials. Our first choice and recommended leather for example is Connolly, which was founded in 1878 and used on the very first Rolls Royce, Bentley and Aston Martin. Our carpets are Wilton Wool, founded in the early 1700 and unbeatable on quality. During the restoration process, no shortcuts are taken and traditional coach trimming techniques are used. For those wanting to defer from originality, we can provide bespoke options and upgrades.
