BARKTEX®_Patchwork_tradition_0188

Here are BARK CLOTH® pieces from several trees sewn together exclusively by hand in a traditional technique, which is extremely elaborate, to form a complete work of art using sisal or sea grass with sisal- or seagrass as thread. This BARKTEX® contains no additives. The motif appears harmonious tone-in-tone, but never repeats itself. Depending on personal preference and temperament of our experienced designers, the motives are sometimes playful and possibly “African,” and sometimes more geometric, influenced by Doesberg or Mondrian. The size is standardized to 1.3 x 2.5 m. The most common applications are in the interior design and furniture manufacturing. IF Design Award in 2005 and nominated for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2007.
