Kimua is a contemporary take on the traditional thatched chair.
The craftsmanship is marked by a clear sentimentality towards an ancestral knowledge of this art. The collection is crafted with natural, untreated hand-plaited Tabouda straw which gives the bench a delicate, refined feel.

Solid oak legs and back, available in five different finishes. Hand thatched “tabouda” straw seat.
Alki´s path started in 1981 in a small village in the northern Basque Country, in Itsasu. In a time of economic difficulties a group of five friends founded a small chair factory that they named Alki which means chair in Basque, with the aim of creating jobs in the Basque region. One of the core principles of Alki is that you can't rush what is meant to last. Beneath this principle lies an abundance of skill and know-how that blurs the boundaries between the artisanal and the industrial. The Kimua serie is a design by Iratzoki Lizaso.
