Peerless Rattan located in Plainwell, Michigan is a cane and basket supplier that carries a wide variety of raw materials and tools for both basket weavers as well as chair caning folks.
Owners Ed and Cindy Hammond are chair caners themselves and can be found on the National Furniture Repair Directory™. They know how important it is to have quality weaving materials and carry sheet cane, strand cane, spline, flat paper splint, round and flat reed and lots more.
Ed has written small beginner instruction booklets on chair caning, spline cane and rush weaving. And on the website they feature short instruction slideshows on some of the most popular weaving techniques.
You can find some hard-to-find tools and materials to use on those projects such as, English “metal weaving steamers” and “straw wrapped rush,” too!
