The Mater Shell Bar Stool is a contemporary and yet very premium bar stool with a leather stitched seat. The craftsmanship involved in making the seat is inspired by traditional craft practices in North India, particularly saddle making. A swivel makes the bar stool suitable for various spaces in both the residential and the commercial settings. The Mater Shell family attempts to revitalise this craftsmanship by providing leather-stitching artisans with a global market for their craft, encouraging them to pass it on to younger generations. The wooden frame is crafted in solid FSC certified oak - the label for responsible forestry - with a water-based stain that respects the local environment.
