Chen, Mei Qing, 48 – seamstress.
“My friends say the worst thing about me is stubbornness. That I never admit when I’m wrong.”
“I used to be in fashion where we worked with a lot of leather. Leather jackets were complicated to sew but one of my favourite things to make.”
Mei Qing’s friend and fellow seamstress jumps in to speak about her. “The best thing about Mei Qing? She’s a very straight and direct person and she’ll always say what she thinks. She has courage.”
Chen works on the upholstery for our Scandinavian style Karla armchair
