Annatijie | Seamstress

As a child Annatijie would watch her mom sew and this is where her desire to become a seamstress was born. This desire soon turned into her passion and today she has been working as a seamstress for 33 years.

Part of her love for what she does is the ability to create something beautiful and to share it with others, especially that moment at the final fitting when each client expresses their initial reaction to the finished product.
