UNIQWA FURNITURE -
Solid rattan frame with water hyacinth webbing and cotton rope knotted decor.
Water hyacinth is a beautiful natural textural material. It is a fast-growing, invasive weed that forms large, dense mats on the water surface if left to grow uncontrollably. Water hyacinth is harvested when removed from waterways to allow light in, making it an eco-friendly material choice for furniture manufacturing.

Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
The Uniqwa range is largely individually, hand-made pieces. As the majority of the products are made from natural materials, elements such as texture, colour and pattern may vary piece to piece.
Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features. Over time, natural splitting, cracking and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults, rather part of the natural life and beauty of timber.
Uniqwa believes the use of natural materials and hand-crafted elements result is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
