Malawi Chair - Natural
Authentic African Malawi Chair – Natural
Making and weaving Malawi Chairs/Tables 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.
Reed from the river is also incorporated into the manufacturing process.
These chairs are extremely hard wearing and strong. 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.
