A unique and sustainable product: the sensation of FIELE

FIELE: woven-wood furniture

Hand-woven fabric

FIELE uses woven-wood developed in-house for the production of its designs. Woven-wood is the fusion of our own artisanal hand-woven fabric with poplar plywood. The yarns used in the woven cloths are mainly sourced from the textile industry (remnants and overstock).

Plywood from native maple and poplar: light-coloured and light-weight wood types

Maple and poplar

We almost always use maple wood from Dutch forests to construct the frames of our furniture. FSC produced poplar plywood is used as the base board for the woven-wood for our table tops, cabinets and (acoustic) wall panels.

More about the materials

Our artisanal production process.

1. Design

Every piece of furniture starts with a design. Klaas Bokma designs and manufactures the furniture for FIELE, but also for you.

2. Weaving

Lysbeth Leistra weaves the most spectacular cloths with a variety of coloured yarns.

3. Interweaving Wood and Cloth

A glue roll applies the cloth to the plywood board to produce the woven-wood.

4. Protection

To ensure the sustainability of the cloth, several layers of water-based resin and lacquer are applied to the woven-wood. This protects it against discolouration and scratches, and makes it easy to clean.

5. Cutting to Size

After curing, the board is ready to be cut to size and fixed to, for example, the poplar frame of the coffee table. The demountable table legs are then fitted. In case of shipment, you will need to fit the table legs yourself.

6. Shipment

Each piece of furniture is carefully packed. A fitting instruction is included, as well as assembly tools, if necessary.
