The Upholstered Armless Chair is available in a choice of three Andaman fabric colors and three Bompuka fabric colors.
Bompuka is a 100% cotton upholstery fabric designed by Belgian textile designer Fabienne Collet for Zanav. As with all Zanav fabrics, Bompuka is produced by processes that are mostly manual, with nearly extinct power looms used for the final fabric weave. These old looms have limited pattern options, and out of this constraint, Fabienne created a unique fabric by experimenting with the interplay of weave, color, light, etc. For example, twisting two differently colored vat-dyed yarns brings light play to the matte cotton fiber and blurs the edges of the very small geometric repeat. Bompuka requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship; it would not be possible to design and produce it consistently if hand and culture were missing from the process.
