Take a look at this absolutely stunning Big Story Chair.
The first thing that strikes you about this wonderful ‘big story’ chair is the beauty and simplicity of the natural wood.
Hand carved by very skilled artisans, it’s easy to see why it is so often a case of ‘love at first sight’ for visitors to our Affinity – Made by Hand shop in Portumna.
The detail in the back rest and the fabulous curvaceous arms beautifully capture the qualities of the wood’s complex grain. Enhanced by its clear wax finish.
Aside from its stylish looks, it is also incredibly versatile, projecting a fabulous warm welcome when positioned in a hall, or perfectly at home in a lounge, dining or conservatory area. Equally we have customers who choose to put it in a bedroom!
Beautifully crafted using solid plantation monkey pod wood, it captures the imagination of all who appreciate its immense workmanship and style.

What is Fair Trade
The international Fair trade system represents the world’s largest, and also most recognised fair-trade system. This is a global movement with a strong and active presence here in Ireland. Fair trade is a movement for change that works directly with businesses, consumers and campaigners.
Fair trade is about better prices, but also decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Workers who make items such as this Big Story Chair.
By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices for items such as for this Big Story Chair, (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fair Trade looks at the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
With Fair trade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves. There are over 1.66 million farmers and workers in 1,411 producer organisations across the Fair trade system.
Buying Fair trade is easy and you can buy with 100% confidence when shopping with us. Here at Affinity – Made by Hand we ensure that all of our hand carved & hand crafted wooden products are Fair Trade Certified. We also ensure that all of our products are ethically from sustainable sources and made using environmentally friendly methods.
