HANDMADE IN MEXICO
Made of sustainable tule fibre, the design of this unique seat dates back to Pre-Hispanic Mexico.
Perfect for contemporary settings and low table situations, these Chimpestle (Chim-PEST-lay) seats/stools are made from 100% natural tule fibre - a large rush that grows in the wetlands and marsh areas of central Mexico. Today, only a few artisans still create these seats and the technique was in danger of disappearing.
The Chimpestle seat is crafted by weavers and apprentices under the mastery of artisan partner and maestro Don Nacho Morales in the State of Mexico.
Txt.ure, a cooperative based in Mexico City, strives to bring Mexican classics to the attention of contemporary design space, and for users around the world to appreciate the craftsmanship and history. These Chimpestle seats are a clear example of how they succeed with that goal.
