AMUSF – Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers
At Trust A Trader, we believe that, whatever tradesperson you are looking for, you deserve the best. That is why we encourage all of our traders to become members of professional bodies and check and accredit each trader before it is registered in our own directory, allowing you to find traders near you with complete peace of mind.
The art of upholstery is a traditional craft that allows people to preserve and enhance furniture; poor upholstery could result in damage to pieces of significant sentimental, if not monetary value. The AMUSF (Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers) was founded in 1947 as the AMU to address the challenges, restrictions and inequalities faced by master craftsmen in post-war Britain. Since then, the organisation has grown to include soft furnishings, helping members to source materials, offering guidance and advice on current fire safety regulations, as well as legal advice to members.
The AMUSF strives to encourage consumers to only accept the highest standard upholstery and soft furnishings, by identifying AMUSF members as offering excellence in their craft. With so many under qualified upholsterers and soft furnishing specialists out there, when you choose an AMUSF member from Trust a Trader’s directory, you can rest assured that you are choosing a master craftsman who adheres to and exceeds best practice in the industry.
