Director's Chairs

The Director's Chair is the ideal foldable chair for picnics and camping, and even for use at the home or office. Constructed from Zambezi Teak with a load capacity of 120kg, the African Touch Directors chair can be folded up easily and transported almost everywhere without hassle.

We offer 4 designs; Lite, Standard, Safari, Kruger and Director's Bar Chair.

Design & Construction
All The African Touch’s Director’s chairs are constructed from one of the most durable timbers in the world – Zambezi teak – using very accurate mortice and tenon joints to ensure an integrity and longevity of the chair that is unmatched by other chair makers.


Our design does not utilise spacers (which tend to crack and break off) for the folding mechanism of the chair. Joining screws used on hinge parts are set to the correct tension and then locked in place so they don’t unscrew. In the event of the back-support rail cracking due to excess pressure (normally from ‘rocking’ the chair – which should never be done on any chair) replacements can be ordered from the factory.


The result is a chair that easily folds for convenient storage, and their superb comfort make them ideal for long evenings spent round the dining table with friends, as a desk chair or a casual chair on the veranda or around the camp fire. They are popular on boats, in restaurants and bush camps!
Seat Covers
Seat covers can be UV protected ripstop canvas (double padded or single) or luxurious pure veg tanned harness leather. The standard canvas colour is Howard Green, though Beige and Navy Blue are normally available as well. For other colours please enquire.


After years of use, the canvas covers can become worn and possibly torn. Our covers are a standard size so replacement covers can easily be ordered from the factory or agent.
The standard finish for our Director’s chairs is an oil finish, ideal for an outdoor environment. A beautiful lacquer finish can be used for indoor chairs, and this option is particularly attractive with the leather director’s chair.


For larger orders a painted finish can be arranged, using a very durable coloured lacquer.
