I am an upholsterer artisan with more than 30 years of experience; I descend from a storical family that has been handed down this craft from father to son for 150 years. In the work of upholstery and padding I have skills, both in classical techniques made with springs, horsehair, flax straw, wadding, both modern ones that use elastic straps, polyurethane foam, acrylic webs, velveteen coupled foam and wadding of polyester resin.
I also gained extensive experience concerning structures in polyurethane resins cold foamed, regarding the use of specific adhesives with synthetic or water solvent and about the specific techniques for the application of coatings using thermal reactivation glue, by hot air tool, or by furnace infrared.
On design, producing specific project, also I am able to produce upholstered furniture on request and custom, starting from the frame in wood or steel. I manage 360° the removable covers production, I deal indiscriminately cutting, sewing and application; usually I use any specific type of sewing machine linear, serger, triple feed, 2 needles, overlock 4-wire and zigzag. With these skills, as a freelancer and as handiwork-lender, I successfully performed the role of modeller and clipper in two factories of removable covers sofa in the province of Pordenone. Lately, as a prototypist, pattern maker, specialist of cutting and sewing, I worked in companies in the provinces of Verona, Padua, Venice and Bolzano, creating templates for the production of series and bringing themselves to fruition various leather upholstered, imitation leather and fabric, starting from design in CAD and photorealistic rendering. I am also an artisan in the field of the curtains; in both I work, without distinction, prototypes, cutting, sewing and installation. I usually use sewing machines specialized for light and heavy curtains including hemmer for Blindstitch, the squaring machine and the Bench vacuum ironing. I know very well and I am able to assemble the curtain rods systems of all the companies in the European marketplace. I take care of mounting and installation, both indoors and outdoors, even technical blinds or structures for sun protection. I know in depth the technical specifications of all products of this type on the marketplace, both manual and electric or solar, including those for skylights produced by major industries. From the beginning of my career, I also have dealt with the sales and customer relations; I know in detail all kinds of textile structures, yarns and finishes including those with the use of nanotechnology.
