Bheemraj, 23, upholsterer.
“We asked Bheemraj what his favourite part of his job is. Instead of naming a specific process, he said: “Every part of your body is important, whether it’s your ear, your eye or your leg. Furniture is the same. It’s made up of many processes, each one is just as important as the others.”
“I learnt everything I know from my guru, Sunny. I have become faster with my work but rushing is not the right way to make furniture. For a typical armchair, I maybe only upholster three a day.”
Bheemraj is an upholster who stitches a number of our French and modern country armchairs, sofas and ottomans.
