COLIN ROUSE MASTER UPHOLSTERER

I left school at 16 to start an apprenticeship with a family run company called Cotrims, they ran an auto trimming and furniture upholstery restoration company. After gain my qualifications as Master Upholsterer & Trimmer. I stayed with Cotrims a futher 10 years gaining a variety of skills and experience until I started my own company in Hertfordshire.

After many years working on variety of different project from Country Houses, to Classic & Vintage Cars, ten years ago we decided to have change of lifestyle and move to Cornwall.

Since being in Cornwall I've worked for Penrose Sail in Falmouth undertaking the re-trimming of the super yachts from Pendenis Ship Yard which was a side of upholstery that was new to me and a great new challenge, however,after 3 years I had the calling.

Time to go back to my roots, car trimming. I started a company within the building of Retrodubs at Chacewater, near Truro and it's gone from strength to strength. I started by focusing on Volkswagen upholstery and trimming, however, I cover all types of auto trimming, vintage & classic cars, campervans, caravans, motorbikes and boats feel free to call in for advice and a cuppa.
