The Chobe Chair by Richard Lowe. A unique design with rounded profiles and curved seat and back formed by leather straps stretched over curved timber bearers to give a most comfortable seat that is pleasing to the eye. Each chair is hand built by a couple of artisans at The African Touch trained by Richard. It is only available in small numbers to order due to the time taken to handcraft each chair.
- The leather straps that form the seat and backrest are integral to the strength and integrity of the chair. They are stretched when wet and as they dry they shrink and bind the chair together with considerable force.

We cannot offer a warrantee on chairs except for defects in material and workmanship that affect the integrity of the chair under normal use and weight limits. The reason for this is that chairs can be subject to huge stresses (such as when a heavy person rocks back on the back legs) that are impossible to compensate for in the construction of the chair without compromising on the design appeal.
We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.
The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
