Li, Fu Jiao, 42, reclaimed wood artisan.

We asked Fu Jiao what she likes to do in her spare time. “I’m too old to have fun anymore!”



“I’ve been at the factory for two years and now my son has recently joined. He seems happy and that makes me happy.”

“I’m one of four and we’re incredibly close. Always on the phone to each other, always visiting each other. In fact, I just got off the phone to my older sister. I like to call her on my lunch breaks.”


Li, Fu Jiao specialises in reclaimed wood, removing the hardware before it’s used in our Rubricks collection.
