Marine Couture is now operating under the name Couture. They continue to provide comprehensive indoor and outdoor upholstery and sewing services from their new location: their expanded workshop and showroom is now situated in Cole Bay,  # 5  Royal Palm Drive, Unit 2. 

Established in 2006 with just a team of two, Risje van Eijk, the founder of Couture, now oversees a team of ten upholstery and sewing specialists. Their mission is to cater to the upholstery needs of a growing clientele, including superyacht owners and luxury villa residents. Originally known as Home Couture, the company's extension into Marine Couture in 2008 was prompted by an increasing demand for their services in the superyacht industry, fueled by referrals from Ernst at Tropical Sail Loft. 

Year after year, Couture receives glowing recommendations from captains who have experienced their exceptional work. Risje emphasizes that Couture's goal is to deliver flawless design solutions for both the interior and exterior upholstery of yachts. They work diligently to accommodate the unique limitations and constraints of each vessel, both above and below deck. Their expertise, creativity, and extensive fabric and material selection ensure that all  Couture projects are executed successfully and on schedule.

For a wide choice of fabrics, visit their dedicated fabric store, Couture, in Hope Estate on the French side. They also display a massive fabric samples library in their Cole Bay location making choosing just the right fabric for any interior or on deck cover or upholstery project an easy task!
Specializing also in blinds, Risje and her team offer all types: ‘Roller’, ‘Honeycomb’, ‘Venetian’, ‘Roman’ and more. Additionally they offer custom-made beach towels and bed linens with high-quality cotton.
They provide clients with the opportunity to explore a diverse range of indoor and outdoor fabrics, terrycloth, blinds, outdoor furniture catalogs, and other decorative items.
To maintain the highest standards of craftsmanship, Couture collaborates with a French guild of skilled artisans. In the workshop, Risje, along with her assistant Julien and their team of machinists, take pride in delivering designs that are both elegant and functional, paying meticulous attention to fine workmanship details. They offer a versatile range of products, from delicate silk curtains and custom-designed lampshades to robust protective covers, sophisticated throw pillows, awnings, fitted motor covers, and stylish outdoor mattresses.

Captains’ feedback for their works continues to tell the story well:
  • “COUTURE made some rushed curtains for us, the quality was excellent and they fitted beautifully.”
  • “Very nicely done and good price!”
  • “Excellent standard of workmanship at very reasonable prices.”
  • “On time, good selection of materials and new ideas!”
  • “Risje is fantastic.”
  • “Top, top quality and on time.”
  • And one of the most recent comments received: “We have upholstery work by COUTURE done three years ago, still in good shape!”
