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.

Fibre rush is a very durable one-ply, twisted paper made to resemble real twisted bull rushes. Paper fibre or "fibre reed" was introduced when China had an embargo on rattan reed exportation.

Pre-woven cane comes in many different patterns and gauges.
Also referred to as Cane webbing, pressed cane, pressed-in cane, machine cane, sheet cane, and spline cane.
Holes are drilled through the chair frame for cane material to be woven through.

Riempie chairs were used by the early 1820 South African settlers who were on the move and needed lightweight chairs that utilized the materials available and the technique of Riempies (leather thongs) provided this style of chair.
