How do I Care for Fibre Rush Furniture? How do I clean Fibre Rush?

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.

How can I get my rush chair repaired?

Posted by Webmaster on April 5, 2020 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (0)

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.

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

Posted by Webmaster on April 1, 2020 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (0)

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 Canada 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 couriered from Winnipeg with hanging medallions. What a lovely piece. 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
