They are remarkably solid and well built. The material is faded but intact. They easily fold and let you carry them with a handle which is part of the chair(see picture #2). The seat material appears to be woven, a rug-like material or fabric. (see picture # 6)
Shipping will be from zipcode 28557. The package will be oversize. The shipping package weight might be 55 -60 pounds. I would guestimate the shipping box will be approximately 24 X 34 X 36 inches, well packed.
