Charles Armchair Claret Mohair


Mohair is known for its durability and crush-resistance and is prized for strength, ease of care, colour and lustre - that’s why it’s been used for centuries to upholster furniture. Mohair comes from the long, luxurious and strong hair of Angora goats, which are shorn twice a year. The fibre takes colour easily and once dyed, has a translucent effect that makes this natural material a timelessly elegant choice.

Charles Armchair Claret Mohair


Every button is hand-threaded with a giant needle - a real expert skill because the placement has to be completely precise. When the thread is pulled through, it’s tied to a small piece of cord which is then wrapped and stitched with a velvet bow. All the pleats around the buttons are neatened by hand, resulting in a perfect, hand-finished armchair that has the mark of a true craftsman upon it.
