Part 5: Inside and outside cover

Building a sustainable piece of furniture takes experience, craftsmanship and in our case: an extra dose of 100% natural materials from only sustainable sources. We chose to build furniture only in this way, because we believe that we should not live with, or sit and sleep on anything that is built using harmful materials. Harmful for nature, our environment or our own health.

Part 4: Cotton, felt and latex

100% natural latex. On top of the jute material on the seating area, but also for the armrests and all around we are now applying a layer of 100% natural latex. The latex is delivered in large blocks and we cut it down to the needed sizes in the correct height and length using our large scale vertical saw. This process takes experience and craftsmanship, as the material is very soft and any push or pull in the wrong direction will result in an uneven cut.
