Famous for bags and hats, Ramesh works slowly and carefully, and enjoys making complicated accessories that the other tailors don't want to make.
Ramesh is from a small picturesque village about 20 minutes from the workshop, and previously worked in a small tailoring shop in Dharamsala. Although he enjoyed the atmosphere of the lively market, he says the hours were too long- the tailors were required to complete the garments for the customers no matter how unreasonable the time frame. He says he appreciates the job security he has now, as well as the regular hours, as he is married with two small children.
