Situated in Knysna, the heart of the South African indigenous timber industry, George Fechter established Fechters Furniture Manufacturers in 1936.
With the company growing and an ever widening client base, reaching far beyond our borders, Fechters became well known for producing elegant masterpieces in timbers such as stinkwood, yellowwood and hard pear, as well as sought after Australian blackwood, a well established timber in the area.
While being best known to produce classical Cape Dutch styles, modern, clean and uncluttered designs are constantly being introduced to our range of furniture, while maintaining the high level of craftsmanship that the company is famous for. Fechters specialise in producing custom made furniture, tailor-made to individual customer’s needs and in a variety of timbers and finishes, as well as upholstered pieces in a variety of fabrics and luxurious leathers. Today, furniture by Fechters can be found in many luxury hotels, lodges and private homes.
In 1995, we also became one of the first South African manufacturers to design and manufacture a wide range of patio furniture. Today, Fechters is considered one of the largest local manufacturers of outdoor furniture, with our products available through selected retail outlets country wide.
