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 blue/grey colourway seen in the image above is called KeSa Indigo.

The fabric used for the KeSa Upholstery Collection is an upcycled 'Patchwork Textile'. 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."

A special wood finish called P1 Black has been developed to complement the KeSa Indigo colourway. P1 Black wood finish is achieved by a process that involves hand-applying layers of black stain on the wood, followed by light brushing with a steel brush and applying a final layer of hard wax oil.
