Straw Work’s origin is in Egypt and it uses natural fibers from the haulm. Originally, this material appeared in the East but then it was taken to new lands all over the world. Straw can be obtained by merging different fibers with several thickness. Interlacing and crossing the material, the master artisan can shape patterns in flat surfaces, but also create tridimensional pieces. This technique is mostly used to create chairs, sofas and other furniture pieces. Its huge popularity in the beginning of the XX century was accentuated by Italian and Scandinavian post-war design aesthetics and by the midcentury modern style in the EUA.
