What is Fibre rush?

 

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


 

Fibre Rush Furniture Care

As the material is made from twisted paper never use water to clean any fibre rush surfaces. What you can do is use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean dirt and dust from the fibre rush seat on a regular basis. Use the brush attachment gently to clean in between the strands of fibre rush material.

 

Try to clean built up dirt by scratching the dirt from the surface carefully not to damage the fibre rush material.

 

Some people will apply Scotch Guard or shellac to the surface to protect it from staining. Be aware that shellac may become brittle and flake with time.

If you live outside of the Calgary area no big deal. Most char seats and backs can be removed and sent to Caning Canada by mail. For more information visit. https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping

A seat woven with grass type materials are very comfortable, durable and stylish. At Caning Canada we offer fibre rush material to repair these types of seats. The fibre rush material comes in light brown and a darker brown called kraft brown. The two different colours also come in different sizes or gauges.

 

Fibre rush is a very durable one ply, twisted paper made to resemble real twisted bull rushes. Paper fibre or "fiber reed" was introduced when China had an embargo on rattan reed exportation. Paper fibre became the substitute for natural rattan reed. Material is wrapped around the four dowels framing the square of a seat creating four triangles.

 

Very often seats woven with different grasses, seagrass, rush or fibre rush can be remove from the chair frame. These seats can then be mailed to Caning Canada to have the material replaced with the fibre rush of your choice. Please visit my website to find out how to ship the seats for weaving repair.

Is the cane in the back of your dining room chairs broken, ripped and falling apart?

Want to know where you can get the cane repaired for a fair price? I'm a bit of a tree huger and I love to see things re-used so I'm offering a volume discount on repairing pre-woven cane chairs until the material I have in stock runs out. After that I will have to take a good, long hard look at my pricing as I know the cost of the material will have gone up substantially when I order next. 

So here it is.

!0% off six surfaces or more and 15% off eight surfaces or more. I won't even be picky about it. If you and your friend each have four chairs that need the cane replaced and you bring them together I'll still give you the 15% discount. 

Pre-woven sheet cane is set into a routed out groove on the top side of chair, held in place with a reed spline, no holes drilled in framework.

 

 

 

Pre-woven cane comes in many different patterns and gauges.

 

 

 

Other names for Pre-woven cane include cane webbing, pressed cane, pressed-in cane, machine cane, sheet cane and spline cane.

Still not sure what pre-woven cane is. Visit my website to find out.

If you live outside of the Calgary area don't worry. Most chair seats and backs can be removed and then mailed by Canada Post for repair for around $30. Check out my website for more information.

Why do I get so excited when I receive woven chairs by Canada Post?

I get so excited when I receive woven chairs seats and backs sent by Canada Post for weaving repair. Why you might ask do I get so excited. I'll tell you why.

1. Provides access to a service which can't be found locally

2. Extends the use and life of woven chairs

3. Keeps chairs out of the landfills

4. Preserves the sentimental value of family heirlooms

How easy is it to mail woven pieces for repair you ask

1. Most chair seats and backs can easily be removed by screws holding the chair seats and backs to the chair frame.

2. Wrap the pieces in bubble wrap or crunched up newspaper.

3. Pack them in a box

4. Contact Caning Caning to let me know you are shipping your chair seats and back.

5. Mail them to me from your local post office ensuring that you indicated signature required so they don't get left outside if I'm not home. So far packages have cost around $30 to ship from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. I even had a three panel settee courier from Winnipeg with hanging medallions. What a lovely pieces. That wasn't $30 however the client was more then happy to pay the courier cost to restore her mother-in-laws heirloom which was part of a set to include two chairs.

6. Once they have been woven I will return them collect freshly woven to include the return postage, the cost of weaving and a $7 dollar fee that Canada Post charges for the service.

easy peasy lemon squeezy

How can I get my woven chair repaired? Who can repair my caned chair?

Posted by Webmaster on March 31, 2020 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

My husband David and I are currently in Calgary, Alberta renovating our house to rent so that we can travel this beautiful country in our RV. Once we hit the road full-time we will become Caning Canada Seat Weaving While RVing. We will offer our woven chair repair services while RVing local to the area we are exploring in Canada. Check out my website for more inforation https://caningcanada.com/" target="_blank">https://caningcanada.com/.


I am currently offering woven chair repair from Calgary, Alberta.

Our house is located in Calgary, Alberta so we are able to provide woven chair repair here until we are done our house renovations and ready to hit the road likely September 2020.


If you live outside of the Calgary area don't worry. Most chair seats and backs can be removed and sent to Caning Canada for repair by Canada Post. Contact me for further details. https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping" target="_blank">https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping

We are working hard towards truly becoming Caning Canada. We were hoping to be on the road full time in our RV in the summer or fall of 2019 to provide our seat weaving along the Trans Canada and in the Halifax area.


Glass half full (I live in a Country with great health care and have an amazing doctor) or half empty (we are behind schedule and some of that stuff was very painful) I had four eye procedures in 2019 for my Glaucoma.


COVID 19 - We are self isolating Glass half full (we should get more done on our renovations as we already have the materials we need) glass half empty (not sure what the rental market will be like in September and there are no words for COVID 19).


Starting this October we will winter in Langley, BC from mid October until Mid April. We will do this regardless of whether or not we managed to hit the road full-time as we have a RV site there. Send me a message if you would like to get on the booking list.


We are thinking of spending about a month in the Toronto area September 2020 and a week or two in either Saskatoon or Regina on our way back from Toronto to Langley September or October 2020. This will totally depend on the above glass half empty (not sure what the rental market will be like in September and hopefully COVID 19 is history).


If you would like to get on the booking list send me some photos of your woven chair that requires repair to Caningcanada@gmail.com and I will provide an estimate and contact you when we are in your area.


Thank you and have an awesome day,
