MAVEN Seats & Upholstery is a one-woman business run by Emma Thieme in Downeast Maine. Emma is a Maine native and certified 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 project by MAVEN is handmade from USA-made materials, sourced in New England and the East Coast. All leather is tanned right here in Maine.

MAVEN strives to be as sustainable as possible in its business practices. All fabric, foam and leather scraps get donated to Goodwill instead of a landfill. Packaging is recycled or made into pattern-making materials. The business has goals to be 100% solar powered by 2019.
