Seat Covers we offer:
Several seat covers are available. Hand stitched, full thickness bovine harness leather. Beautiful, very comfortable Auto canvas designed for 4×4 vehicles – can have an attractive genuine leather trim. Ripstop canvas as used to make tents. Tough, waterproof, ideal for hardwearing situations out of doors. For the purists we can offer old fashioned cotton canvas covers. However, we should point out that cotton canvas does tend to rot over time if left in the rain. 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. A canvas chair cover is also available to protect your chairs if you wish to lave them out of doors in all weather.
The evolution of our Director’s Chairs.
The African touch Director’s Chairs have been around for thirty years now, and the safari chair is our best seller. They have been shipped to every continent bar Antarctica (at least not that we know of!). We have made over thirty thousand of these chairs and have continually refined the design into what we consider if the best on the market.
Every joint is carefully measured using a Vernier caliper to ensure a perfect fit and the optimum amount of wood glue is applied. Our chairs are designed without any spacers between the legs as these can fail and cause the chair to become unstable. As a result, the chair armrests are offset when folded, but this has no bearing on the comfort of the chair. The seat is set at just the right tension so that it is always taught but also at the right height to sit. Stainless steel or brass fittings can be provided especially for chairs to be used on the coast.

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.
