Melvill & Moon is South Africa’s ‘retro Safari brand’. The company manufactures high-end safari luggage, canvas seat covers, camping furniture and safari accessories.
These seat covers are now available in the UK via Tuff-Trek. Melvill & Moon started manufacturing its original seat cover in 1998. Often referred to as the seat cover that started an industry.
The range includes the Original 100% Cotton Canvas, Premium Range with added luxury features,and the 510g Bokseil made from hard wearing heavy duty material. All of the company’s products are inspired by the era of great African Safaris which lasted for one century. From 1836 – 1839 unique conditions and eccentric individuals created a style of adventure that can never exist again.
Abundant big game, ungoverned landscapes, a zest for discovery and an appreciation for both hardship and luxury, came together then in vast bush of South-eastern Africa. The heyday of the great African safari, particularly during the White Mischief / Happy Valley / ’Out of Africa’ Edwardian era, has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Melvill & Moon design and product inspiration. The product inspiration resulted in solid brass zippers and buckles, heavy canvas, wide webbing, vegetable tanned leathers, bridle hide straps: ‘Hardy on the outside, fine on the inside’.
These hardy seatcovers are available in the UK via Tuff Trek for Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover, Defender (pre-2007, 2007-2011, 2012-2015) and other makes by special order.
All of the seatcovers are Airbag compliant, have side pockets on front seats and are waterproof resistant.
The Premium covers come with leather piping and are available with personalisation options by means of embroidered initials.
Unlike synthetic seat covers (made of Nylon, etc.), cotton breathes and is exceptionally cool to sit on.
Owners of the top of the range 4 x 4 vehicles purchase these Safari Seat Covers for a number of reasons; they give the vehicle interior a superb quality finish, which looks as good in the city as it does in the bush. Melvill and Moon Safari Seat Covers keep the original seats new underneath no matter how harsh your vehicle usage may have been.
When they get dirty you simply remove them and hand wash them. Suddenly the likes of wet gun dogs, messy kids and the dust of Africa or mud of the Highlands shoot is no longer an issue.
