Caning Canada Woven Furniture Repair

Caning Canada has been providing expert woven furniture repair services since 1986 


My husband David and I have rented our house, allowing us to travel this beautiful country in our RV while bringing our furniture weaving services to a town near you. If you would like to know more about our journey check out our story and our blog posts. 


Seat Weaving While RVing - Cane, Danish Cord, Fibre Rush, Seagrass, Rattan, and Shaker Tape Chair Repair

Weaving Material and Styles Offered by Caning Canada

A chair is only as good as its seat. As artisan seat weavers we are able to offer the most intricate weaving methods using multiple materials including Danish cord, seagrass, fibre rush, cane, rattan, and Shaker tape.


Caning Canada wants to make the restoration of your woven family heirloom or newly discovered treasure obtainable and therefore our pricing is based on weaving style, the material used, and the attachment process and not the value of the woven piece you need to be repaired. 


If you would like to mail your woven chairs to Caning Canada for weaving repair most chair seats and backs can be removed and then mailed to our winter site. Check out our shipping page for more details. 


For a furniture weaving repair estimate please send a photo of your project to [email protected] or text us at 403-613-5801 showing the full piece, the top of the piece and the bottom.


I will need your location and contact details for our booking list.
