You might have seen woven chair seat patterns at your parents and grandparents houses, antique shops, flea markets, or furniture stores.
But did you know each of the different patterns and materials all have particular names?
Believe it or not,  they are not all called, “caning”!

Six Most Popular Types of “Chair Caning” are:

Traditional Hole-to-Hole, Hand or Lace Chair Caning
Pressed Cane, Machine Woven or Cane Webbing
Wide Binding Cane or Porch Cane
Natural Hand-twisted Bulrush & Cattail Leaf Rush
Man-made Paper Fibre Rush
Ash, Oak, Hickory or Rattan Reed Splints
