Vintage Wingback Chair
The Vintage Wingback Chair with carved feet and a high sculptured back has been upholstered by hand in an original 'West of England' Covert cloth woven at the Fox Brothers mill.
The classic Covert cloth from Fox Brothers is pure wool twill, made famous by Cordings of Piccadilly in the early 1990’s with its iconic Covert coat.

To recreate the original ‘West of England' Covert used here to hand upholster this beautiful chair, we tracked down a label in Japan so we could analyse the construction of the original, authentic British cloth made by Fox Brothers
Since its conception, the iconic Covert coat has become symbolic of everything that is good about British design and historically was worn when riding through the countryside as its weave is thorn proof, avoiding pulling.
