Grain Sack Chairs are Here!

We are excited to announce the arrival of the newest collection from FRAGMENTS (learn more about Fragments here): beautiful reclaimed chair frames upholstered in 120 year-old grain sacks!

These authentic, durable sacks are composed of hemp and linen, and each one is truly unique.  Hand-woven over a century ago to haul agrarian goods across Europe, each sack features a distinctive stripe that was used to exclusively identify the sack’s owner, so each one has its own special character. In recent times, they have become increasingly popular in home d├ęcor and upholstery projects, and FRAGMENTS has repurposed them into a beautiful line of chairs.

There are 10 chairs in the collection, each with its own unique history and two pieces are alike. You will find in this collection all of the elements you have come to expect from FRAGMENTS: outstanding craftsmanship, made entirely in America, repurposed with that hip, fresh look!
