Originally designed by Terri Koithan, each one is still hand-woven and hand-dyed. Born near Niagara Falls, NY, Terri developed a strong work ethic. One of six kids, she also inherited a unique characteristic from her dad, a determined stubbornness when it comes to getting an idea and making it a reality. Terri has an art and textile background from SUNY at Oswego and Syracuse University. With help from her father, she designed the chair and invented many of the tools on which it is made.
