A seat for example will have coil springs stitched onto a Jute webbing base. They are then lashed onto each other & fixed to frame. The springs will then be covered by & tied onto Hessian. Coir fibre is then added, held in place by bridal ties. This then is covered by more Hessian and tacked to frame.
Edges are stitched by hand, 3 row’s making a good firm (long lasting) edge with a small rolled edge on top. Next a layer of hair topped with cotton felt. It is then covered by calico & is now ready for the top fabric to be applied.
