Giovanni (Gio) Ponti - 1891–1979

1957 - The birth of the award-winning Model 699 Superleggera (super light) was designed while Cassina was outfitting luxury ship liners with Gio Ponti. The chair weighing in at just 1.7 kgs.

Caning Canada Woven Furniture Repair

At Caning Canada - Seat Weaving While RVing, we have been providing quality seat weaving services since 1986. 

At Caning Canada we truly love the depth and character we find in all types of woven furniture from around the world and throughout the ages. I can't help but wonder if these pieces were living beings what stories and insight they could share. As a person who loves to let my mind wander in the past and hear a person's storey I often find myself daydreaming of what the piece I'm weaving wants to share.


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

My husband David and I have rented our house, allowing us to travel this beautiful country in our RV while bringing our weaving services to a town near you. Caning Canada offers Danish cord, seagrass, fibre rush, cane, rattan, flat reed, and Shaker tape weaving styles.
