Hank’s Cane & Rush Restoration specializes in Hand Cane, Machine Cane Webbing, Paper Rush, Danish Cord, Shaker Tape and more. Sadly caning and rush seat weaving are fast becoming dying art forms and it is our intent not to let that happen. Each chair we see in the shop comes with a story or has a story yet to come!
Our mission at Hank’s is to restore your chair or furniture piece while refreshing the memory that accompanies it! Or possibly it’s a chair with memories still to unfold! Whatever you do, don’t throw that chair out without talking to us first! ~ Lynn

Saggy Bottom Girls Caning offers chair seat weaving services in and around the Indianapolis, Indiana area. We specialize in cane, fiber rush, seagrass, flat reed, binding cane, and others. We are a home-based family business and I personally weave each chair. We also work with local restoration companies should your chair need structural repairs.
I started this business several years ago as a way to spend time with my dad. People began asking me to fix their chairs with saggy bottoms and that is how the business began.
This is also how I came up with the name. It’s a play on the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” starring George Clooney, and my Saggy Bottom Girls Caning seemed like an interesting twist to their Soggy Bottom Boys band.

Barbara’s Caning and Weaving, also known in the region as Broward Furniture Refinishing & Caning is located in Fort Lauderdale and has served Broward County and the surrounding area over 25 years, reweaving chair seats.
Owner Barbara Marx, started weaving many years ago when she needed her own four chairs re-caned. She was living in New York City at the time, in the 1980s, and decided to learn the chair caning craft on her own.
Barbara liked caning so much that she later went into the seat weaving business, providing services of hole caning, pressed cane webbing, paper rush and repairs to wicker furniture, too.
Always up for a challenge, not only do we work on chair seats, but also love seats, benches, and even cabinet doors on yachts!
Our services also include repair and re-gluing of chairs. We do work for several local antique dealers in Florida and New York, too.

RS Peck offers caning, both hand woven and prewoven, in most patterns including the very difficult double-blind cane technique. I also do woodcarving of reproductions (such as missing sections on furniture and mirror frames) and original pieces.
I owned and operated a furniture restoration business in Racine, Wisconsin for 24 years, prior to closing in 2014. So if your piece needs gluing or repair, as often is required with chairs and rockers, I do provide that service.

East Street Arts is dedicated to fostering the creation of art through artisan training programs, workshops and community interactions for persons of all abilities.
The Association of Artisans to Cane, a chair caning studio at East Street Arts, students learn many different styles of seat weaving and use these skills to restore chairs for community members. Caning students are trained in the craft of chair seat weaving through hands-on learning and with oversight from a Master caner with over 30 years of experience.
The caning students have the opportunity to learn various forms of seat weaving, including hand cane, pressed cane, paper rush and flat reed/splint weaving, as well as other techniques. Caning students advance at their own pace; as one style of caning is mastered, another style is taught. While most of the seat weaving is done to restore chairs for community members, donated chairs in good condition are also restored and sold in the shop.
