Hand woven using methods unchanged since the seventeenth century. Our rushes are cut each year from the river Thames. Green when new, the seat mellows to the warm biscuit shade most commonly associated with rush seats.
Imported from the Far East this raw material, the outer skin of a jungle creeper, is painstakingly woven by hand to produce a hard-wearing seat. Light in colour when fresh, new seats can be aged to blend with older panels. Many modern chairs use cane panels woven on a loom, which we can also replace.
This tough material is mainly used for footstools.
Danish Cord Seating
Hand woven on framed chairs mainly from the 60’s and 70’s.
