Charpoy, which means “four legs”, is a rethink on the Indian daybed. Charpoy has a handmade cotton and silk mattress embellished by precious crafted embroidery. The decoration is a facsimile of a game, similar to drafts, which in India is reminiscent of the time of wars when kingdoms and wives were won as bets. The mattress of Charpoy is a highly valuable item that encapsulates the tradition, craft skills and richness of the hand finishing, contrasting with the underlying wood base with a black lacquer finish produced industrially in Italy.
