From a small private paradise with lush foliage, close knit families that is found in Sumatra Indonesia, hails former son and Naval Officer, Djapril Uty, owner of Mata Hari Upholstery. Indonesia is widely known for the renown architecture and beauty of Bali with it's Garden Villas and pristine beach fronts. It is apparent that the Indonesian people take great pride in thier detailed craftsmanship and that is the same with Djapril Uty as seen in his custom upholstery work. When Naval Office Dajaril Uty's ship docked in New York, this became the pivotal changing point in his life as he quickly realized he had fallen in love with New York and it's Big Band, Swing and Jazz found on every street corner.
Djarpil said good bye to his career as a Naval Officer and welcomed New York with open arms. And it was soon after making New York his home that he found himself enrolled in a certified upholstery school. Upon graduating as his detailed craftsmanship in upholstery was recognized, he had found employment working for some of the top design studios in New York City. As a former Naval Officer who enjoyed traveling and exploration, Djapril decided to explore the USA, and he moved to Virginia. While living in Virginia, Djapril worked at a one of the most exclusive furniture and interior design stores in the Washington DC area. Eventually Djapril fell in love, married and started a family and the long hours and late nights were no longer acceptable to this family man who placed his children first. Therefore Djapril decided to find a more rural area to raise his beloved children.
Djapril discovered Frederick Maryland offered just that, where he founded Mata Hari Upholstery. Mata Hari Custom Upholstery and Antique Restoration has been in business for thirty years, and where his son Thomas Uty a graduate with an MBA from Mt. St Mary's College, joins him in the family operation. His daughter Holly is a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, resides with her husband and daughter in TN, which is only a stones throw away to once Naval Officer Djaprel Uty who takes great pride in the accomplishments of his two beloved children in the USA. Due to this fathers heart for his children, Frederick Maryland's Historic District can boast of the family operated Custom Upholstery and Antique Restoration Shop on 308 North Market St., along with it's convenient Mobile Fabric Studio.
The story doesn't end in the USA, Djaprel's youngest daughter Ditha Mathilda Uty who resides in Indonesia has recently joined her father and her brother in the family business Mata Hari Upholstery. Ditha Uty oversees the development of Mata Hari Custom Italian Furniture division which will be coming soon to Frederick MD USA.
This once Naval Officer now Master Upholster couldn't be more proud of his children, Holly, Tommy, Ditha and Linda Utyka. Mata Hari Custom Upholstery is a family owned an operated community business that treats all thier customers like, family!
