- Customer Reviews
Item - Pair of HTF Vintage Folding Chairs produced by Lafuma of France, Circa 1950s (please see all photos). Brothers Victor, Alfred and Gabriel Lafuma founded the company in 1930 producing backpacks. In 1936, the company developed and invented the metal-frame braced backpack, which expanded the company considerably. Having produced products for both the French Army pre-World War II, and during the occupation of France by Nazi Germany for the Wehrmacht, the company resumed production post-war. In 1954 Lafuma expanded into camping & outdoor tubular steel furniture including tables & chairs. In 1984, the company went bankrupt, and was taken over by a grandson of the founders, Mr Philippe Joffard.
