History lesson – saddle making has been a huge craft practice in North India, but it is waning due to technological advancements. This Shell Dining Chair is an attempt to incentivize this skilled trade by providing these artisans with a new market for their craft (and pass on to the young’uns). The curvy shape is homage to Scandinavian design of the mid-twentieth century – embracing clean lines, leather forming and stitching, deep comfort, and durability. Long live the saddles!
