From the island of Java in Indonesia

The furniture in the Crosillia collection are all manufactures in Yogyakarta, a city on the island of Java in Indonesia. All the materials and the production of this beautiful furniture are made by workers from the local community, primary by elderly women from the community. This to help them raise their income without having to leave their home tasks.

The use of the natural element in this furniture collection is guaranteed to create harmony and contemplation in any interior décor and is a unique and eye-catching furniture design that brings tranquillity and authenticity to your store.

Wood with durability

The furniture is manufactured in teak derived from the community forest in the Yogyakarta area. Each piece of furniture is handcrafted with great care by skilful craftsmen and afterwards carefully hand sanded to reach the soft and nice texture of the wood.
 
Teak is a trend that has long been a luxury element in our décor and is a very popular material to use in the interior design – it is not hard to understand why! The warm colour brings a lot of charm into the home and acts as a good contrast to the bright and minimalistic style. Teak exudes a special retro atmosphere, which is hard not to fall in love with.
 
Teak also called Tectona grandis, is a tropical tree type that originates from India, Burma and Thailand. Originally, teak was used on ships and for maritime equipment due to the durability of the wood. It is one of the strongest available wood types and is very popular due to its unique colour, strength and exotic origin.

Macramé comeback

Today the yarn weaving skill has had a great comeback turning textile knots into modern pieces of art. The twisted rope used for our Crosillia furniture collection is made of 100 % cotton and manually twisted by local women. The cotton rope is macramé woven to create the beautiful pattern and texture.
 
The word “Macramé” is Spanish and is originally derived from the Arabic word Migramah. It is meant that the macramé technique comes from an Arabic weaver culture in the 13th century Arabic, meaning “fringe”. This refers to the decorative fringes on camels and horses that helped to keep the flies off the animal in the hot desert regions of northern Africa. From Arabia, macramé was spread throughout Europe, where sailors used the macramé method. When they had quiet moments in the sea they made the artificial macramé ties and sold it when they arrived Europe. To complete the furniture after the manual processes, the rope and the wood frame are collected and processed for further weaving in a factory.
 
Our gorgeous Crosillia furniture collection is one of our absolute favourites from our Spring Summer 2018 collection.
