Mukesh, 25 – upholsterer.

Mukesh didn’t want to be photographed alone. “I like to work with Bheemraj. I would be happier to be photographed with him.”

“I learned my skills here in Jaipur because I wanted to make my own sofa suite for my home. No-one can do diamond tufting like me.”

“I specialise in the tufting part. There are two threads that I stitch through the cotton and then I make a fold to hide the thread. It’s very strong and it can’t be broken. It will last forever.”

 

Mukesh works on the upholstery of designs like our Astor ottomans.
