saddle blanket

Christien Meindertsma has long dreamed of using residues from the furniture industry, because many of these woolen residues still have a beautiful quality and color. Usually these pieces are thrown away, but Christien started a research on how these offcuts could be reused. The offcuts consist of two different types. The whimsical trimmings that remain when cutting the fabric and the last few meters of fabric on a roll that can no longer be used.

For "saddle blanket" Christien devised a way in which all these unusable small pieces of fabric can be reused. The trimmings are alternately stacked on the last few meters of unused fabric and these are then needle-felted into a package. This way all layers are connected to each other which results into a spectacular mixing of the colors. To give the fabric a blanket-like and firm structure, it is felted again with water.

The design of "saddle blanket" is based on the shape that naturally arises when you fold a woolen blanket. The base of the stool is a frame made of beech wood. The stool almost seems to float on its four corners and is reminiscent of a folded saddle blanket or cushion. Each seat is unique.
