MAVEN (MĀ-VƏN): SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW

MAVEN Upholstery is a one-woman business owned and operated by Emma Thieme. Emma is a Maine native and professional auto trimmer, specializing in designing and building custom leather motorcycle seats. A rider herself, Emma still owns the candy red '80 Honda CM400T that she started out on and a '09 BMW F650GS with a custom black leather pleated seat. 

Each MAVEN project is handcrafted from USA-made materials, primarily sourced in New England and the East Coast.

Emma strives to be as sustainable as possible in her business practices. She donates all fabric, foam and leather scraps to Goodwill instead of a landfill, and packaging is recycled or made into pattern-making materials. Emma hopes to have MAVEN 100% solar powered by 2019.
