With an even grid pattern and wrapped edging, the Cortina Silla is designed to hang from the back of a chair. Tactile and delicate yet strong, it brings a playful textural element. Attaches by ties at the top corners.
Our Maguey Collection is the result of a collaborative design process between Twenty One Tonnes, Hermano Maguey, and Susana Vicente Galan.
Each piece celebrates the ancient material it's made from. Made in Oaxaca from fibres of the maguey plant, the process is intensive. First maguey leaves are pressed until all but the fibres remain. The resulting tangle is whipped and combed into smooth strands, and then twisted into lengths of slender cord. This cord is then set into a treadle loom on which each piece is woven by hand.
Susana Vicente Galan comes from a long family tradition of weavers in Teotitlan del Valle, where she learned to weave on a treadle loom when she was 8 years old. While her ancestral tradition is to weave wool carpets, Susi was happy to experiment with maguey fibre because she believes tradition can evolve.
