  • History of Cane Weaving
    popularity has largely been dictated by fashion During the Regency period many faux bamboo chairs were made some with finely crafted cane seats The Brighton Pavilion was a trend setter and as its style was based on Far Eastern influences as a result rattan and bamboo became popular English furniture manufacturers wanted to promote this style and so cane seating became more widely recognised Since then a revival of Regency style at the turn of the 20th century saw an increase in the number of pieces of furniture using cane Bergere salon suites became popular with their cane back and side panels and almost everyone had a dainty little cane seated bedroom chair Many of these Edwardian pieces are highly prized now and the caneworker s art is making a comeback We have price guides for our repair services For standard six way weave replacement click here or for close woven patterns click here and for Bauhaus Cesca John Lewis Rubberwood dining chairs and all other furniture using pre woven panels click here If you have patience and like to be creative traditional canework can be a fascinating and productive hobby Basically there are six stages to the weave the first stage is a series of vertical strands passing through opposite holes from the front to the back rails of the seat You follow this with a set of horizontal strands passing from side to side through opposite holes then put in a repeat set of vertical strands laid slightly to one side of the first vertical set from front to back rails It is not until now stage four that you begin weaving A second set of horizontal strands are passed through the side rail holes just as before except that this time they are woven in such a

  • A Potted History of Rush Weaving
    seating material declined during the first half of this century partly due to the lack of skilled labour Many of the rush workers and harvesters were men who never returned from the two great wars the craft suffered as a result With the recent interest in both old crafts and vintage furniture rush seating is once again enjoying a revival It is not a difficult craft with practise anyone can create a good hard wearing seat and the mellow tones of a rush seat seem to fit in with any decorating scheme or period of furnishing There are now many new alternative materials available like paper fibre and pre twisted cords which are so much easier for the novice to use making the craft even more accessible to all We can replace any type of rush seat for you to see our price guide please visit the paper fibre replacement services page here or for real rush material replacement visit our page here The traditional rush pattern resembles an envelope in shape It is created using a single continuous strand of the chosen seating material This strand passes over and round the front rail through the centre of the seat then over and round the left hand adjacent side rail From here the strand is bought up through the centre of the seat again then over and round the right hand side rail through the centre and over and round the front rail This is the basic pattern repeated round and round the seat rails always passing over the top of the rail the crucial element is tension getting it right It needs to be tight enough not to sag but with enough play to allow stuffing of the pockets that will be created inside the weave As with canework
