Kingcome’s fabric cutting team
Our highly skilled team of fabric cutters have over 100 years’ experience between them.
Fabric cutting is a creative process, and Kingcome’s highly skilled team handle a huge variety of fabrics, from the first stage of receiving clients’ fabric choice on the roll to handing over cut pieces to the sewing team. No machinery is used by the team – fabrics are hand cut to bespoke measurements, and pattern matching and placement is all done by skilled eye and hand.
With backgrounds as diverse as costume design, fashion, embroidery and even sewing yurts and wedding dresses, the teams’ understanding of textiles and pattern placement is unparalleled.
Each piece of furniture is the responsibility of an individual cutter, whose creativity and experience reflects in the final look, enabling each team member to achieve the satisfaction of creating a finished model.
With 30 years’ experience Marcia says “I enjoy patterns that really make you think – working from measurements, planning placement according to the fabric pattern and clients’ requirements, all while minimising wastage”.
Our talented craftspeople are a vital part of creating timeless bespoke furniture that will last for generations.
