Product Description

The Upholstered Easy Armchair/KeSa Collection is available in a set of fabric 'colourways', designed and produced by textile designer Padmaja Krishnan.

The fabric used for this chair is an up-cycled 'Patchwork Textile' - created through an intense process of collecting discarded fabric scraps, arranging them with care into specific patterns and sewing them one piece at a time by hand, and then by machine. The process of stitching and making enough fabric for a single chair takes several weeks of work and is done entirely by women artisans in Padmaja's workshop in Mumbai.

Each chair we make in this collection will be truly unique, even though they belong to a specific 'colourway' created by Padmaja.

The blue/grey colourway seen in the image above is the first one launched and we plan to add more colourways to the collection soon.

A special wood finish called P1 has been developed to complement the 'patchwork' aesthetic of the Padmaja Collection. P1 wood finish is achieved by a process that involves hand applying layers of black stain on the wood, light brushing with a steel brush and applying a final layer of hard wax oil.
