Dimensions: 200/300 cm

Materials : hand-sewn woollen felt

the chair is covered in a thick hanging coat of padded felt. A timeless object, entirely hand-made, it takes cues from a tradition in Kirghizistan : when a girl is married, her mother gives her a sewn felt rug each stitch of which represents a day of happiness for the newlyweds. This rug has countless stitches that intertwine like long ‘hairs’.
