Caning Canada Woven Furniture Repair

Seat Weaving While RVing

Saving Woven Treasures One Chair at a Time

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.

We're back in the Vancouver area until mid-April and will have meetups in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford once we have a truckload of weaving projects.

 If you want to know more about our journey, check out our story and our blog posts.

Caning Canada Overview

Weaving Material and Styles Offered

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

Woven Chairs for Sale

Sometimes we come upon a piece that is available to be restored. Caning Canada loves providing these beautiful pieces a new lease on life and keeping them out of our landfills. You can find the treasures we've rescued and restored in our shop

If you want to donate your piece to keep it out of the landfill or sell your Mid Century Modern or caned furniture, feel free to send us a message.

Let me know which part of this beautiful country your piece lives in so I can add your details to our booking list if we aren't currently in your area.

A couple of photos would be great so we know what type of chairs you have.

If you're selling your chairs, how much do you want?

Caning Canada will restore every piece we add to our online shops for re-homing, so please understand that we cannot offer you what we list our chairs for in the shop. We will easily spend two to three days restoring a piece and then weave it with new material before posting it for sale.

How we Price Weaving Projects

Caning Canada wants to make the restoration of your woven family heirloom or newly discovered treasure obtainable. 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.


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 entire piece, the top and the bottom.

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

Mail Your Piece for Weaving
