The Canvas
The covers are made using our very special stash of vintage (new old) 12oz canvas. The designs (and indeed the canvas) are from the 1960's to the 1980's made mainly by Australian company Brella (sadly now defunct). The canvas was originally made for outdoor window awnings and have a plain green colour on the rear side.
We use Australian made UV protected binding and thread.


The Makers
BKF Butterfly chair covers are made in Castlemaine, Victoria Australia by Walking Foot Sewing. We also manufacture a range of cycling bags and accessories under the brand Ron D Swan.
