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.

Caning Canada

Weaving Styles Offered by Caning Canada 

Furniture can be used as historical text as it reveals social history and meaning.


There are three players associated with the furniture as cultural documents: the maker, the mediator and the user.


At the top end of the scale, 'aristocrat or nobleman furniture' is made by highly skilled cabinetmakers whose work reflects the latest stylistic tendencies.


The middle group, 'country furniture', is made by cabinetmakers with good technical skills and whose work portrays the fashionable style of the day.


'Vernacular furniture' is made by anyone in order to address a functional need and not typically style. Showing a lack of furniture-making skills or training. 

Hans Wegner Danish Cord CH23 Dining Chair

Danish Cord

Danish mid-century modern mcm furniture incorporates minimalist design creating functional furniture with pure, clean lines. Chair frames are specifically designed to accept Danish cord material woven in a certain style.


Danish paper cord is a twisted paper cord that has been used to weave seats since the 1920s. Danish modern furniture gained popularity after World War II in Denmark and other European countries.


Mid-century and modern Danish cord chairs are woven with the standard basket weave pattern or the traditional rushing pattern. Chair frames are designed to accept a specific style of weaving and are therefore not interchangeable.


Some of the main Danish furniture designers include Peter Hvidt, Hans Moller, Hans Olsen, and Hans Wegner
