This special edition of the Upholstered Easy Armchair is upholstered in a cotton/linen blend fabric called Andaman Slate created by the textile maker Zanav. 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 done by hand. The yarn is dyed using the specialized vat dyeing process, in which the yarn is turned manually in and out of a vat containing solubilized dyes, resulting in a continuous reduction and oxidation in 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.
To match the fabric, we created a special wood finish– Charcoal (Z7) - for this version of the Easy Armchair. 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.
