Made of Eggshell
High-quality furniture with the most fragile materials? Eggshell use is an ancient Vietnamese tradition with lots of difficult techniques. Nowadays, Cravt Original is the high end furniture brand that creates furniture and design objects with finishes of natural materials like eggshell.
Coloring of Eggshell
Putting the eggs on hot coal creates the shading effect on the shell itself. Turning the egss around every couple of seconds creating a darker ‘burnt’ color depending on the shade you need. From the moment the eggshell has cooled down the egg get’s crushed and meticulously placed into position, piece by piece, color by color…
Use of Eggshell
The uses are almost unlimited! Amazing vases combined with vibrant lacquer colors and birds made out of mother of pearl. But als geometric patterns created with thousands of eggs. Do you feel like the burned, brown coloring is nothing for you? There is also a technique to slightly sand-down the eggshell layer and put any lacquer color on top. The irregularity of the eggshell will be filled in with the specific color giving the overal look a total new feel.
Mother of Pearl, Lacquer, White Kabibe shell or semi-precious stone. All rare and techniques that slowly dissappear in the world of mass production. Some passionists still love to work with these materials and have the patients to still produce this. We thank Cravt Original for all their help and to keep up the good work!
