    My friend has a cape her mother was given from a bull fighter in Spain and would like to have it properly restored. She lives in Phoenix Arizona. How do we do this?

    Hello,

    We are an interior design company based in Orange County and we recently finished a job up in Sacramento. We had a sofa reupholstered in a custom woven chenille. Unfortunately the sofa fabric somehow got a hole on the front lip about the size of a finger tip. The hole did not go through the backing. We were able to get some loose threads and were advised to contact an antique fabric repairer. Is this something you can help us with? I would be happy to send you photos and any other details needed.

    Thank you.
    -Christie
