Car Seat Upholstery Shop

This is a common sight outside car upholstery shops here in Jeddah. Lined up outside the shops on the sidewalks or in any spare space are dozens of car seats waiting to be reupholstered. I don't think I've ever seen something like this in the states. US businesses would keep this type of work back in a workshop that is not visible or accessible to the public for many reasons I'm sure. I don't think being exposed to the elements is a good idea, and there's always a chance that someone might trip over them if they are out on the sidewalk. Another reason is because I would think there would be too great of a chance for the seats to be stolen or vandalized in the US - but not here in Saudi Arabia.

The old adage “they don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is appropriate when contemplating reupholstering your furniture. If you’ve had a sofa or chair for several years, or it has been passed down to you from a loved one, it is clearly going to last just as long if it’s properly restored.
