Lobatse-born Sithole crafts his products perfectly to furniture shops standards that one can be mistake them for imports.  Situated in a busy street of Woodhall 1 ward, his business attracts customers as far as distant districts in the southern part of the country.

Sithole said he started upholstery back in 1998 after learning from his late father.
