Rethinking old craftsmanship
Whether injecting new life into real classics or whether cherished pieces are to be reupholstered, the Kravka upholsterers and decorators have the right touch for it. Incorporated into the Hofmeister Vienna group of companies three years ago, Kravka is entirely devoted to stylish outfitting and furniture.
From Tradition to Modernity: horsehair mattresses and furniture upholstery
The team of the workshop has not only mastered the almost forgotten craft of horsehair processing but also makes modern furniture linked to the great classics: it is upholstered, covered, sewn, repaired and restored. From the suspension, to the horsehair pad, through to the exquisite selection of furniture fabrics, everything is done in the workshop. The skill of processing of horsehair, which is almost extinct in Austria, is a special skill of Hofmeister's team. This is a shame, because this material inherently has many positive attributes compared to the requirements of conventional foam. It is antiseptic, among other things, and can be brought back to its original form, even after prolonged use by "rolling up".
