Handmade in Spain using recycled sails from around the world, each of design studio Dvelas‘ chairs is a unique expression carrying its own history on the sea. Over time, ship sails start to weather and deteriorate, making them useless for exact navigation. The material however retains many of its excellent qualities with respect to resistance and humidity. The goal of Dvelas is to recover these used sails and give them new life and a new history through design.
