This Special Edition of the Upholstered Armless Chair is upholstered in a 'wild silk' fabric called Sekphura. Sekhpura is a rough, hardy silk fabric made using silk yarn spun from wild silkworms (and not the more commonly available yarn from cultivated silk worms). The yarn used in Sekhpura is reeled (spun) using waste fibre left over after spinning finer yarn called Tussah and Ghicha, which are typically used for saris and clothing. Therefore Sekhpura is a super upcycled fabric made from the waste of commercially produced yarn. The Sekhpura yarn is spun entirely by hand and the fabric can only be produced by handloom weaving. The fabric has been put through rigorous testing for upholstery usage and is reinforced with a backing layer to give it stability.
The wood finish was specially created by us to match the fabric and is called Walnut (Z4). The Walnut (Z4) finish is achieved by hand staining the wood with a water based walnut stain and then hand applying a coat of sealer.
