Retro Kantha Patchwork Nest Chair - 42

Ian Snow Ltd

SKU: FT177-42

Retro Kantha Patchwork Nest Chair - 42 is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

A bright jewel in the world of soft furnishings, this beautiful and colourful chair is boho-chic. Covered in a patchwork of kantha scraps (recycled saris), each chair is a textile masterpiece, a one-off, a unique statement. The shape nods very much towards retro influences, but the style and ethos are nothing but contemporary. The makers of this wonderful chair provide employment for well over two hundred men, forty of whom work in the factory, fifty are cottage workers and the remainder are sub-contractors. In addition to statutory wages the workforce benefits from paid overtime, medical insurance and assistance with food and lodgings. The local area has benefitted greatly from company's efforts, providing employment and much needed regeneration. They have implemented good environmental practices including recycling waste and using recycled wood in some of their products. Having their own water supply helps the factory to measure very low on the pollution scale and the company states that are proud of their friendly and safe working environment. They value their staff for the hardworking individuals that they are. Individuality is the key here and for a special and expressive piece, choose from this bright and cheery collection. A classy, contemporary and very popular chair. It's a gem.
