The seat of your pants

Denim is always in fashion with teenagers, and lifestyle boutique Tree has come up with a way to breathe new life into old jeans.

Southern style

The design of this children's Acapulco chair was inspired by the Mayan weaving technique that originated in Mexico in the 1950s, which was used to make traditional costumes and clothing.

Beasts of burden
