Reference information:
What Did A Coach Trimmer Do?
Trimmers would produce soft furnishings, carpets, soft tops, and roof linings often to order to customer specifications. Many automotive trimmers now work either in automotive design or with aftermarket trim shops carrying out repairs, restorations, or conversions for customers directly. A few high-quality motor car manufacturers still employ trimmers, for example Aston Martin.
