Talk us through your background.
From the age of 14, I dedicated my summers to working in my father’s factory, where I was introduced to the art of crafting furniture. It was during these summers that I became acquainted with the unmistakable scent of natural wood and honed my skills under the guidance of seasoned master furniture makers. With each passing summer, my passion for my craft and familial heritage steadily flourished, eventually solidifying as the greatest love and pursuit of my life.
