Product Description

Cobalt is the second KeSa fabric colourway developed for the Upholstered Easy Armchair model.

The fabrics used for the KeSa Collection are upcycled 'Patchwork Textiles' - created through a process of collecting discarded cotton fabric scraps, arranging them with care into specific patterns, and sewing them one piece at a time by hand, and then by machine. Making this fabric is a very time consuming, laborious process as each yard of the fabric needs to be designed individually every time. This long and intense process of stitching and making enough fabric for one chair is done entirely by women artisans in Padmaja's workshop in Mumbai. Therefore, every piece we make as part of the KeSa collection is truly unique, even though they belong to a specific 'colourway' - designed and produced by textile designer Padmaja Krishnan.

Each fabric colourway in the KeSa collection is complimented by a specific hand-stained wood finish, developed by Phantom Hands. The wood finish for the Cobalt is called Burnt Cobalt/Coir and has a distinct bluish tinge.
