Product Description

Products in the KeSa Upholstery Collection are available in a set of fabric colourways, designed and produced by textile designer Padmaja Krishnan. The colourway seen in the image above is called KeSa Sand. This is the third KeSa fabric colourway developed for the Upholstered Easy Armchair model.

The fabrics used for the KeSa Upholstery Collection are upcycled 'Patchwork Textiles'. It is created through a process of collecting discarded cotton fabric scraps and new fabrics, 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.

A specially-designed cushion is optionally available for each chair model in the KeSa Upholstery Collection. The cushion is designed keeping in mind the ergonomics of the Easy Armchair and is called the 'Manju' cushion.

Fabric colourways in the KeSa Upholstery Collection are complimented by specific hand-stained and burnished wood finishes, developed by Phantom Hands. The wood finish paired with Sand is called Mocha-Driftwood. Mocha-Driftwood finish is achieved by repeated applications of diluted walnut stain and sealer on deeply burnished wood, followed by brushing with steel wool.
