The difference between wicker and cane...

 

Cane is a material / Wicker is a process (Wicker work)

Understandably many folks are confused on wicker verses cane chairs. Cane for chair seats and backs is a material (the peeled skin of the rattan vine ) but Wicker is a particular weaving method that can be done with many different materials, including parts of the rattan vine.  Wicker weaving or wicker work as it is referred to in the trade is often performed with reed from the rattan vine as seen here in the wicker rocker picture on the right. Wicker work can also be performed with different willows and reeds which are commonly seen in wicker baskets. You can perform wicker work with anything that's suitably proportioned and flexible

Hand Or Machine Woven Sheet Cane

Is Your Chair Hand Woven Cane Or Machine Woven Sheet Cane? Chair caning is the craft of applying strands of rattan cane to chair seats or backs. Two methods of applying rattan cane to chairs are hand weaving and machine woven sheet cane. The hand woven method involves weaving the strands of cane into a series of holes that are drilled into the seat or back of the chair in a 7 step pattern. It's called 7 step because you weave two parallel strands of cane vertically, followed by two parallel strands horizontally, then two more strands diagonally while crossing each other and finally the 7th strand, which is typically a larger width, is woven around the outer perimeter to cover the weaving holes to give the end results a more finished look. The second method is applying a prewoven sheet of cane onto the chair while tucking it into a groove formed in the seat or back and inserting a thin strip of rattan pith into the groove with glue to hold it all in place. This method is similar to installing a screen on a screen door but much more difficult ...read more...

The Five Available Machine Woven Sheet Canes

Danish Diagonal               Closed                      Open                 Box/Radio          Danish Modern

Machine woven sheet caning originated about 100 years ago when the furniture manufacturers were looking for ways to overcome hand caning chair production limitations caused by lack of skilled rattan cane weavers. The vintage photo on the left shows production hand caning of bent wood chairs while the picture on the right shows the machine weaving process which is used to create the sheet rattan cane. As you can see the "machine" is nothing more than a rudimentary hand loom

What is chair cane and where does it come from?  Cane for chair caning and chair caning repair is actually the peeled bark of the rattan vine. Rattan, of the liana plant species, is a spiny climbing palm that grows in tropical forests throughout Southeast Asia attaining lengths of over 600 feet...read more...

What is "Rush" for seat weaving and where does it come from?

The term "Rush" for chair seat weaving originally comes from the bulrush or cattail rush used in weaving a rush chair seat. Bulrush is pictured below on the left and cattail on the right. As you can see from the photos they both grow in wetlands and marshes, which for the most part, puts them off limits due to the protected nature of their habitat. Fortunately we have good alternatives with fiber rush, sea grass rush and golden wheat rush. You can see examples of various rush seats we have restored on the "Find Your Rush Seat Chair"  page
