Who is Sonnaz Nooranvary?

What does Sonnaz Nooranvary do when not on The Repair Shop?
Sonnaz now owns her own company, Sonnaz Limited, which she founded in 2011. According to their website, the company aims "to bring fabulousness and craftsmanship into every space we possibly can". It continues: "Reupholstery and restoration will always be areas we remain deeply passionate about. For those who commission either of these services, the craftsmanship that goes into all aspects ultimately prevents treasured items ending their usefulness in landfill. They live on to tell stories about their current owners, past generations, long-lost families and all manner of historical backdrops."
