South African Riempie furniture [in it's original form] dates back to Early Cape Dutch times. I like how furniture designer Haldane Martin has given it a completely new colour and twist – In his design he replaces the riempies with recycled plastic! We have some South African friends who live in London. Their Riempie chair needed some repairs and so they asked us to send some of the leather strips or riempies over. I was delighted to receive their “before” and “after" pics today! Well done Colin and co!
