The original leather chairs were also very thick and expensive due to the abundance of natural fibers from the surrounding rice paddies and short trees.
The Seagrass Meditation Chair was designed with two cushions, a big cushion on each corner and then there was a back rest, matching the color of the cushions. In addition, there were matching pads to place under the legs of the chair. The cushions would fit tightly around the back of the Seagrass Chair and it was these cushions that gave this chair its unique name. The original chair has never been replaced and has been passed down from one generation to another.
