The inside of upholstery

Often in old upholstered furniture the jute ribbon breaks and the springs fall out. Spring-time is a stool, made in the traditional way; except the jute ribbon is replaced with a rubber ribbon. When you sit on the sear, your body weight pushes the material inside out of the bot tom of the stool. The stool is made with a latex coating to get the effect of skin being squeezed together when the upper material gets compressed.
