Décor Dictionary: CMT


CMT is another term stolen from the fashion industry. As designers and decorators, we regularly use this abbreviation when working with the custom design manufacturing process…

CMT:  is a acronym most often used in the fashion production industry meaning “Cut, Make & Trim”. It can also be used in relation to the décor trade to describe the fabrication process of bespoke furniture, window treatments and upholstery. “Cut” refers literally to the cutting of the fabric, timber, or other elements; “Make” is putting it all together; and “Trim” refers to quality control and readying the item to be shipped. In short it means “manufacture”.
