Did you know that the oldest mimbre pieces still existing –storage boxes and hassocks- date back to the time of Cleopatra? Hence, do not be admired if you come back to visit this unique 19m2 suite after some thousand years and still find the mural decorations, the backs of the chairs and sofas and the window blinds made from mimbre still standing.

With its distinctive, natural look, the lightweight mimbre (rattan or wicker in English) adds a touch of sophistication to this 2 Queen size beds suit with balcony, that will embrace you with the energy emerging from its clear brown chocolate color.

 

Highlights

An experienced weaver can only complete two chairs a day.
When planning his first transatlantic flight in 1927, Charles Lindbergh had a mimbre pilot's seat installed in his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis. Mimbre was an obvious choice due to its light weight, durability and comfort.
Mimbre is so strong that it's used to construct hot air balloon gondolas. And the Malaysians use it to build suspension bridges.
The tomb of King Tutankhamen (Tut) included some finely woven mimbre stools and chests – along with baskets, matting and even a pair of mimbre sandals.
During the Victorian era in the mid-1800s, mimbre furniture came back into vogue because the Victorians believed that its smooth surface was more hygienic than upholstered furniture.
