Traditional childrens Malawi dark
Making and weaving Malawi Chairs is a long labour intensive process which takes months of planning.
The Tiliaceae shrub is used as jute for the weaving of the chairs. The shrub grows in the summer months and the long roots are harvested, coiled and dried.
In the winter months there is no material available to weave these chairs, therefore weaving is limited to about 8 months of the year.
These chairs are extremely hard wearing and strong. A generous sized seat and back support providing space to add desired cushions for style and added comfort. The natural chairs can get damp– but drying quickly is essential, as it is an organic product and must not stay damp for long periods, as mould can settle.
