A special edition of the Upholstered Easy Armchair, upholstered in a cotton/linen blend fabric called Andaman Slate. The fabric has been woven using a simple Panama weave pattern and dyed to a slate black colour. The entire yarn production process - from yarn winding, warping, denting, drawing to dyeing - is by hand. Special mention must be made of the vat dyeing process used to dye yarn; the yarn is turned manually in and out of a vat containing solubilized dyes, resulting in continuous reduction and oxidation deep into the fibre until the desired colour is achieved. The yarn picks up dye differentially, and the result is a subtle inconsistency of colour which is the hallmark of all Zanav fabrics. The final fabric is woven on traditional power looms that are relics from a bygone era.
The wood finish has been specially created by us to match the fabric and is called Charcoal (Z7). The Z7 finish is achieved by hand applying layers of black stain and sealer, followed by burnishing with a steel brush to give the wood a textured finish.
