Cane Webbing

Also refered to as Machine or Sheet Cane is manufactured from the outer bark of the rattan palm and woven into a varitey of patterns, from the traditional octagonal and close-woven basket weaves to the modern radio, modern and box weaves.

Cane Webbing or prewoven cane sheets

Seat frames must have groove routered in it. Can also be used on cupboard doors, etc and is held in place with a trim.  Add  2" to size of actual distance between grooves.  Prices are quoted per running foot, but you can order by the inch,  if 15" by 18" width is needed, figure price as follows:  15" divided by 12" = 1.25 ft. x $10.00 = $12.50
Remember to give two dimensions when ordering.  Fine Open is the most popular.
Samples available upon request, to insure the closest match possible.  Sometimes we may not be able to match exactly to the original due to manufacturing changes, ie. different size cane or spacing
