masters of their craft: junaid hamid


Known simply as 'the upholsterer,' Junaid Hamid handles his needle and thread with absolute attentiveness and precision - as the master of his craft in the upholstery division at SHF, every stitch must be considered. Junaid is part of a long line of family upholsterers - the 4th of his generation. As a family man, his wife and daughter often accompany him to the studio. His skill is honed by tuning into all five senses, paying meticulous attention to texture, depth and movement. Fondly referred to as the Christiaan Barnard of precision by his colleagues at SHF, Junaid is an artisan who is dedicated to this craft.

'Life cannot be tailor-made but true craft can, by tailor making the things I love, I tailor make life'- Junaid Hamid
