A labourer stops work to offer the Namaz prayer while his colleagues continue their work attaching beads and sequins to fabrics in a factory in Lower Parel that is part of Maximiliano Modesti's Les Ateliers 2M, a Mumbai embroidery firm that works with many luxury western brands. Unlike many of the Mumbai embroidery businesses working with luxury western brands, Modesti says his highly skilled staff are not exploited and earn 50% higher wages than the local average.
