Umila, 36 – frame finisher.

“I’m very house proud and like to shop at the markets, especially if there are weddings to prepare for. I went to a wedding last month and there were about 500 people there, all dancing. I love to dance.”

“Oh, we never chat. Definitely not. Always working hard…” The lady at the end winked at us.

“I’m very proud of my work. Mostly men do my role; I’m one of only three ladies doing this. They’re hiring more and more women all the time though. It’s a very good thing.”

 

Umila works on the frames of some of our modern country and French-style designs, including the Astor ottoman.
