Phantom Hands Upholstered Armless Chair in Zanav Fabric/Special Edition


This special edition of the Upholstered Armless Chair ia created using a wild silk fabric from the Zanav Collection called Shekhpura. Shekhpura is a rough, hardy silk fabric made of yarn spun from fiber left over after spinning the finer Tussah and Ghicha, typically used for saris and clothing. All three variants of the silk come from wild silkworms, and not the more commonly available yarn from cultivated silkworms. Being made of commercial textile waste, Shekhpura is a super upcycled fabric. It can only be woven manually on hand looms. The Shekhpura fabric used on this chair has been put through rigorous testing for upholstery usage and is reinforced with a backing layer to give it stability.

To properly pair with this special fabric, Phantom Hands created an equally special wood finish--Walnut Z4--for this version of the Armless Chair. The Walnut Z4 finish is achieved by hand staining the wood with a water based walnut stain and then hand applying a coat of sealer.

Please see the links below to view the samples of the Shekhpura fabric and the Walnut Z4 wood finish.
