Rose le Basse Holmes nee Taylor's occupation on the 1939 register is given as Satin Liner. Is this something to do with the cutlery industry?

Re: Occupation

I looked in the newspaper archive for firms advertising jobs for satin liners in the 1930’s in Sheffield. Several were for the cabinet case trade, one was for the cutlery case trade, and one was for a cap maker.
