Doing traditional upholstery requires a lot more than just knowing how to use traditional materials and techniques! One must know about the origin and characteristics of the right upholstery supplies and where to source them.Provincial Upholstery was opened in the Southern Highlands of NSW in 1994 by Carlos Rodrigues, however his experience dates back to his childhood in Portugal. Carlos has come to know the upholstery trade inside out and has exclusive contacts worldwide. His experience and knowledge has allowed him to source and import the highest quality upholstery supplies and materials from around the world, to ensure his traditional upholstery is the best in Australia. Together with his wife Fernanda, Carlos has worked closely with the Australian Government of New South Wales since early 2006 in his ongoing restoration project of Government House. Carlos’ work has included other heritage work within Sydney Living Museum such as the project on Vaucluse House.
We are proud to offer trade access to our unique industry supplies including Mongolian Horsehair, European Flax Stitching Twine and Lacing cord and Jute Scrim.
