NIWAR is rooted in Indian textiles and craft skills that Phantom Hands’ upholstery artisans offered. Inspired by the thick cotton tapes (called Niwar) that are commonly used in India for making daybeds and chairs, Niwar becomes the signature element of the collection. All the pieces are upholstered, with cotton tape wrapped around the outer frame, enclosing soft linen upholstery within it. The handspun and vat dyed linen fabrics and matching cotton tape are custom produced for this collection by Bangalore based textile maker Zanav. NIWAR collection includes a three seater sofa, a single seater sofa with ottoman and a lounge chair with ottoman, they are available in four fabric colour options and two wood finishes.
