Đāo, 30 – seamstress.

“My favourite thing to do on pay day is to buy myself some gold jewellery. My husband only owns one gold ring, but he’s very understanding of my habit and saves up to buy me things too.”

“I suppose I’m the boss in our relationship. I make all the decisions at home. I wouldn’t like to own my own business though. I’ve been at the workshop for six years now and I’m very happy here.”

“There was one time when my husband put his foot down. I fell in love with a bright pink sofa – my favourite colour. I really wanted to buy it, but he said no. I can’t think why!”


Đāo sews the covers for our collection of Mimi two-seater sofas.
