Wooden and Straw Chairs

Until three decades ago, handmade wooden and straw chairs were found in every Damascene house.

The sudden influx of cheaper plastic and metal substitutes, however, led to the reduction of workshops producing wooden and straw chairs in Damascus from over 30 in the 1980s to a mere 3 workshops at the turn of the century.

Luckily, foreign demand for these traditional handmade chairs has recently revived this important handicraft.
