This product was created in a region near the India/Pakistan border. When the British Army removed from the region in the late 1940s, most of the industries that made the local economy went with them. The indigenous people returned to the traditional crafts that they had known for generations. Several hub cities of industry have flourished, creating numerous, sustainable, and stable jobs for the people of the surrounding villages, helping in the time between harsh growing seasons. These industries form a valuable alternative means of providing for families, especially for women in the area. Profits from these workshops have created an unprecedented number of schools, hospitals and infrastructure improvements in the area. This industry has truly created an economic renaissance in the region.

Arrived fast. Ordered 2 to sit at the foot of our king size bed. Easy to assemble, no screws or instructions. Well made and strong. Price is crazy good for product received.Read More
For the price, this woven leather seat and iron base bench is a steal! It is sturdy a little to heavy to move around. So probably best if you want to keep in one spot.Read More
I bought one of each color for the foot of the bed in two of our bedrooms. They're great for putting on your shoes and socks in the morning. But even better, they look wonderful. The leather quality is excellent. The colors are rich. And you certainly can't beat them for the price. Wonderful value.Read More
I bought two of the brown ones to go with my brown leather sofas. They look really nice and are substantial and solid.Read More
Very happy with bench, even happier that bench is so sturdy - no fear of breaking this wonderful work of art and functionally furniture. Fits perfectly in my alcove and has filled in when extra seating is needed. Also glad about the color which was a main concern, but the burnt orange fits nicely and stands out on its own. Quick delivery and wrapped nicely. All in all a good value and fine quality purchased item.Read More
Love this bench. I use it at the foot of the bed. I needed something that wouldn't take up a great deal of room or visually block the eye and this is perfect!Read More
I've watching this ties for a while now and was happy to learn that it was back. Love the dark brown. It makes it look very classic and goes with everything. Thankfully it didn't have the horrible spit smell of the gold colored bench. That was absolutely disgusting.Read More
This 'bench' was higher quality than I expected for the money. I anticipated a lot less weight in the iron, with woven leather stretched tightly over a frame. Instead, the heavy wrought iron frame supports a cushioned pad. Alas, it is white and shows through the woven leather a bit until it is treated to some oil.. It is generously sized so quite a large person could sit on it, but a little large for the vanity I anticipated. That will teach me to pay attention to measurements!Read More
This bench is a great accent piece. I have it in my foyer and it gets minimal use. I do not think it could hold up to every day wear and tear. It is an awesome looking piece. A little pricey but worth keeping.Read More
Our decor is transitional/electic. We purchased 2 benches and placed them behind our sofa; a break away from the day-to-day old sofa table styling. Considering getting 1-2 more to use in our guest rooms as luggage racks! We love the bit of rustic, hand-made charm and uniqueness! Other reviews menntioned concerns about the slight gaps in the woven leather. To us this is just plays up the hand vs. machine made. If it's a big concern you can easily use a matching permanent marker to color the minimal lines where you "may" see the pad - again, you'd have to get close and stare at the seat to find them. The benches are sturdy because of the frame stabilizing bar. We like that they can fold down for storage although we love them so much I can't imagine ever doing that. These benches look like we paid at least 4x the price and came from a boutique type shop; you WON'T find anything like it in a regular furniture store. Great style, great price, great find!Read More
