Trilogy Loom is made by twisting and winding paper around fine steel wire, the Kraft paper is then placed on a loom and woven into a loom fabric. This traditional method has been used for over 100 years.

The above picture is of the trilogy Charlotte loom chairs, any of these colours look fantastic with the luxury faux stone tables or just as an occasional chair to have in a small nook or courtyard with a small forged iron table.
