Wicker ~ Rattan &  Wrappings

How do you - I fix or repair wicker or rattan chairs?

How to fix or repair wicker or rattan chairs?

  RATTAN is a type of climbing palm plant, which grows primarily in the tropical regions of Indonesia and China.  The outer Bark or skin of the long climbing vine is removed from the Rattan Pole, then cut into very thin strips to become CANE for using in cane chair seats.  It has a very shiny surface, and is extremely strong, and creates a beautiful chair seat that will endure for years.
  WICKER is a term basically given to anything woven out a grown material.  After the bark is removed, what is left is called the "Core."  This material is often used in making the frames of RATTAN FURNITURE, or may be further milled into various diameters of Round material commonly called ROUND REEDS in many widths and diameters 1/16" up to 5/8", or into half round, oval or flat strips called "FLAT or FLAT OVAL REEDS."  Whenever these materials are then "WOVEN",  a piece of "WICKER" is created.  Technically this would be called Rattan Wicker.  Other Plants used in creating "WICKER," items are Bamboo & Willow.

  WICKER FURNITURE, has been with us for many generations. Wicker, Rattan      and Cane are materials used in various  types of furniture making, baskets and other purposes, both decorative and functional.

Repairing the Skirt on the front of a Wicker Chair~

  This chair below was made by the Henry Link Company, as part of their, "Smithsonian Collection", from the The Stephanie Inn ,  A Premier Oceanfront hotel located on Oregon's beautiful north coast in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Some Rattan or Wicker Chairs have a special type of  2" (The New material is Actually 1 & 15/16") tan / light brown Pirelli rubber.

  On some "Fancier" models there is a type of two part metal clip that attaches to each end of the strap, then a special mating clip is attached to the chair.

Others like on the chairs above, there is a little 1/8" groove going around the frame. The end of the rubber has a flat metal piece attached to it which then locks down into the groove on both sides at an angle.

 

   If the rubber on your chairs is broken or has lost its ability to hold a cushion up, we can replace these for you. We can also sell you the rubber webbing and clips like above to do it yourself.

 

Rattan Wrapping

  Most RATTAN FURNITURE pieces have  joints wrapped with thin strips of Rattan Cane Binding Material about 1/4" wide.   Most often this wrapping is more decorative, than it is actually holding a piece together. Sometimes however these wrappings over the years have a way of unwinding themselves, or becoming worn or damaged.  We can repair, re-glue, tighten & replace missing wrappings, to make these items look beautiful again.

 

Teapot Handle

A Recent little Sterling Silver Tea Pot ( teapot) with a rattan cane wrapped handle. This was her Grandmothers, and needed some attention. It was a fun little Project.

Pricing for Wicker & Rattan Repairs

These Repairs are always different for every piece we do! No two pieces ever need the exact same repairs, even 2 identical pieces.  There is no easy or simple way to give a flat price on repairs in this classification of furniture repair. Every thing in this category of work is a creative & time consuming  project to figure out where you can best begin to marry the new repairs, into the existing work.  Sometimes conditions like years of improper storage in attics or old barns of items, makes repairs of them very time consuming! Sentiment can be expensive here.

Currently I charge $50.00 an hour for Wicker Repairs
