Malawi Chair - Black
An African decorating staple full of tradition, these beautiful chairs are made entirely by hand in rural Malawi and display great weaving craftsmanship passed from generation to generation. Each chair requires three to four days to create, and every chair is slightly different in shape and size.
Malawi chairs are handmade using rattan strips, which are woven into intricate patterns along the sides of the chairs and the seat. Rather than using glue, makers secure the strips with special knots. To create a curved barrel back, they temporarily insert spare parts from cars and bicycles that guide them as they work.
