Straw marquetry

Straw material… as you have never seen it !

Straw shines thanks to silica…
Straw marquetry was born in France in the XVII century. This art could be compared, in terms of techniques, to wood marquetry. The straw marquetry maker cuts the straw, crushes and plates it edge to edge while making a pattern.

 

The natural material has hightly reflective qualities. The straw is tinted by deeping, as for textile. It can be of any colour (except white). The design can either be very colourful or muted according to taste.

Straw is kind of rustic and modern at the same time. Straw amazes and seduces.
