Seat Weaving While RVing - Cane, Danish Cord, Fibre Rush, Seagrass, Rattan, and Shaker Tape Chair Repair
Caning Canada has extensive experience repairing binding cane or rattan woven furniture.
Binding cane or rattan is used to wrap furniture legs and arms and is often used to create magazine shelves on vintage tables.
Twisted seagrass was used to weave vintage chairs prior to Danish cord.
Peter Hvidt and Borge Mogensen are two mid-century designers whose chairs are generally woven using seagrass.
Pre-woven sheet cane is set into a routed out groove on the top side of the chair, held in place with a reed spline, no holes drilled in framework.
Also referred to as Cane webbing, pressed cane, pressed-in cane, machine cane, sheet cane, and spline cane.
Holes are drilled through the chair frame for cane material to be woven through.
Also referred to as Rattan, wicker, strand cane, lace caning, traditional caning, hole to hole caning, and natural strand caning.
The technique of Riempies (leather thongs) provided this style of chair.
I don't do leatherwork, however, can offer to weave your Riempie chairs with a binding cane which provides for a beautiful woven chair.
Cotton strapping is used to wrap straight edge chairs and is available in a multitude of colours.
