lives in the coastal waters in most of the continents. Seagrass is unique because it is the only flowering plant that can live underwater. Dried seagrass makes beautiful furniture. Seagrass furniture is woven by hand, while the plants are still green. Because the seagrass dries, the furniture will lose the green color, become firm and ready to use.
Leather is a natural product and comes (mostly) from animal skin. No animals are slaughtered for the leather itself, it’s a byproduct of the meat industry.
Leather is durable, full of life (grain) and can resist most types of weather if protected well.
The smooth and shiny exterior makes it very easy to maintain. Use a soft cloth along the rows of the grass to get rid of dust or dirt. Steam the seagrass to straighten if you please.
We recommend keeping your seagrass furniture indoors. If you take it outside, protect it from rain and rough weather. If exposed to rain, there is a possibility of rotting since it’s a natural material. Also, direct exposure to sunlight will fade the color of the seagrass.
Clean leather by using a soft and dry cloth. Water and soap could also be used.
To maintain your leather products the best way, we recommend cleaning it regularly with an uncolored leather polish.
Also, leather can lighten and fade color if it’s exposed to direct sunlight, so be careful where you place it. In any case use a protection spray once every two or three months.
