The Tripolina Chair gets it's name from the Libyan capital, Tripoli. The chair was patented by Joseph Fenby in the late 1800s. When Libya was under Italian colonial rule in the early 20th Century the chair was produced by the firm of Paolo Viganò in Tripoli for the Italian expat market, who used them as camping chairs. They were very stable in soft sand and the readily available local camel hide gave original Tripolina chairs a distinctive Italian colonial style.
