• While researching natural threads, we came across to the last yarn factory from Romania, located in Falticeni, that produces only linen and hemp yarn. We then started to experiment with different crochet patterns.

  • We first designed the rocking chair, the shape of the wooden structure and the crochet cover has evolvate in time, until we were satisfied with the confort of the chair.

  • While searching for natural textile fabrics, we discovered an interesting story about the hemp tissue. In certain parts of Romania, the hemp was an important material. In the Cris county, the hemp was the most cultivated textile plant, from which textile fabrics were made. We found there, at the artizan’s market, hemp tissue woven more then 50-60 years ago and designed to endure generations of constant use, so it would still have a  long life. We used the hemp tissue to cover the poofs and the bench.

  • Looking for a natural material that we could use to fill our poofs, we came upon the feathers that we found in old pillows. For our grandmothers, the feathers of the poultry was a material that they collected in time, the duck feathers are the most suitable to fill the cushions. We recycled some old pillows, we’ve washed their feathers and they became more fluffy.

  • A decorative ornament was necessary for our poofs covers,  so we visited some local traditional artisan manufacturers ( Palanca, Clisova-Noua, Moldova). They guided us to use an ornament that is applyed to the seam between to pieces of textile. Here the ornament is also functional, because it holds together two pieces of textile.

  • The reeds for our bench were collected from the south of Moldova, Valea-Perjei village, the local people halped us to collect it. Because of the natural conditions, the reeds are growing there constantly in this natural area.

  • We've done most of the woodwork in our own workshop, with the exception of some details which were made by craftsmen in their workspace.
