Prior to joining the workshop, Ismail worked as a tailor in a large factory in Delhi for over 10 years, and is one of our most experienced employees. Originally from West Bengal, 1500 km from Dharamsala, he comes from a family of ten children, most of whom are tailors!
He's responsible for training many of the new tailors and specialises in jersey and knit wear. He says he prefers the environment of the workshop compared to Delhi: he feels relaxed here and able to express himself, feeling like he is part of a large family.
Ismail's head of the downstairs tailoring room, and although the position commands much authority and respect, he much prefers sewing to giving orders! He's also one of the stars of the workshop football team, and is the first on the field most weekends!
