BLACK AND WHITE COWHIDE$5.00
Our black and white cowhide is just that: the hair-on hide of a black and white cow. The amount and degree of blackness and whiteness and hairiness varies from cow to cow and thus from hide to hide. We aim, always, for a harmonious mix of black and white on each chair but there will of course be some variability from piece to piece. Shedding is normal and to be expected with cowhide. In time, some hair will wear off revealing the leather underneath. All of the slats on a chair are interchangeable thus a more worn slat may be moved to a different position.
The upholstered slat covers which wrap the gently curving slats on our line of steel seating affix securely and discreetly with velcro. The inside face of each slat is covered with durable ballistic nylon fabric and the core is filled with a high-density foam cushion. Each slat is essentially an individual padded backpack strap with an added hook-and-loop closure.
We designed this system so that over time folks could swap out the slats for new ones and thus easily re-upholster their DoubleButter chair with a new look at a modest cost. The plan is to add new and occasional limited-edition upholstery options on the regular, so stay tuned. For now, if you want to order a new set of upholstery for fresh look on a piece you already own, just give us a shout and we'll make it happen..
