We want these almost forgotten, Mexican popular classics, to earn their place in the contemporary design dialogue, and for users across the world to enjoy them in their homes.

Nowadays, only a few artisans still weave these seats, and the technique is in danger of disappearing. The hope of txt.ure is to prevent this extinction by creating new interest and a new market for this type of Mexican craftsmanship.

TXT.01

 

Ø 46 x 40 cm /  Ø 18 x 15.7 inches 
100 % Hand woven in Tule natural fiber
Made in Mexico

The txt.01 –originally named in nahuatl, icpalli (seating)– is a handmade tule seat, made through a complex process that requires complete mastery of the technique. 

txt.01 is one of the unique objects that are still made with the same technology than in the pre-Columbian era, a powerful connection to the past. The forms of the txt.01 hold a traditional DNA. txt.ure has honed its style and scale to translate the icpalli into the contemporary design language.

 
 

TXT.02

 

Ø 64 x 40 cm / Ø 25 x 15.7 inches
100 % Hand woven
in Tule natural fiber
Made in Mexico

 

The history of the txt.02 is similar to txt.01 in terms of its technique. txt.ure has focused on the grandeur and scale of this version to transform the tabouret into a grandiose piece of contemporary design. 

All our pieces are crafted by weavers and apprentices under the mastery of ur partner, artisan Don Nacho Morales in the State of Mexico.  

txt.02 model is a wider variant from the txt.01 in diameter. The re-design does preserve the original prehispanic icpalli typology in terms of height.  

The txt.02 tabouret accompanies our txt.03 individual armachair model as an ottoman or as a side table, with a simple tray placed on top.

We suggest the txt.02 as a textural accent which provides warmth in the most intimate areas of the present-day spaces.

The txt.10 is an accessory tray that will turn your txt.01 tabouret in a beautifully composed side table.

In txt.ure, we are material purists. We source one of the most uncommon dense basaltic stone in the deepest part of the State of Mexico, where we are now running workshop. The black color finish of the stone is natural, sprinkled with silica that gives it a unique shimmer, adding up to its extraordinary qualities.

Tule pieces are truly architectonic pieces. this is the traditional solution for the table typology, offered by the weaving technique and centuries of tradition. txt.ure has only iterated proportions to make it more consistent in tis shape.

The weaving technique allows for a wider surface, which turns a simple tabouret into a more defined side table. Its surface is only 10 cm + in diameter than our regular txt01 tabouret or composed side table by the txt01 + txt10.
