We live in a prefab, cookie cutter disposable world, but I come from a family of artisans. I understand the values, pride and passion that come with practising a craft. As a second-generation upholsterer, I’m incredibly proud of the design, the art and skills my father has passed on to me. Upholstering is a sustainable craft that drives a circular economy, and the way it works informs my whole world view and inspires my work at MinRes.
