Woven Chair Repair
What style woven seat do I have?
There are many styles of woven seats using a wide variety of materials. The following pictures represent the three most common styles, “hand-woven cane”, “pre-woven cane” and “fiber rush”. Within each of these styles there are sub-terms that define the pattern or the material used for each style. Knowing the terms can be very helpful when quoting a cost.

How much will it cost?
Chairs are like children, each one is unique. This makes it difficult to quote from email inquiries. Correct terminology and photos are very helpful, but speaking to you is best short of seeing the project first hand. We use fixed formulas for determining costs for seat replacement and am happy to discuss these with you. Complicated weaving can run $100 - $200, but most basic seat weaving is under $100.00 and many pre-woven seats are much less.
How long will it take?
Most chair repairs take one to two weeks to complete. When a chair needs more TLC it can take more time. We believe in moving repairs a long as quickly as possible without jeopardizing the quality of the work.
