These benches are made with sisal, the raw fibers from the leaves of the agave plant which are typically used to make ropes, carpets and fishing nets. Once a large industry in Mexico, the production of sisal came to a grinding halt after the invention of plastics. For me it was important to do the whole procedure, from harvesting the plant to extracting the fibers and knotting them by hand. With this I hope to remind us of that some answers to the environmental challenges of the future might be found in traditional crafts rather than exclusively in new technological discoveries.
