Santra, 34 – sander.

“At lunchtime there’s always a lot of joking. The women huddle together and tease one another, especially about their husbands. Who has the smartest husband, and who doesn’t..! We all wear a lot of colour too. A workplace should be uplifting.”



“Sometimes I choose to work additional days for extra money if there’s something I want to save up for. When I’m not in work my favourite pastime is singing. Songs like ‘Gomar Ganesha’ is a divine song. Like a lot of people, I feel closer to God when I sing.”


Santra is one of the finishing artisans who perfects the frames of French and modern country designs like the Rouen stools.
