Natural Binder Cane
Natural binder cane is much like strand cane in that it is also made from rattan peel; but it has been cut wider and thicker. It is a very versatile material; it is used to cover the holes in hand caning, as a seating material using the tight weave technique, as a wrapping material on wicker and rattan furniture, and as a weaver for basketry. For the tight weave or twill weave technique, we recommend the book Splint Seats for Chairs.

What is wicker and rattan?

Wicker is a weaving process, not a material. One of the materials used in the weaving process is called rattan core, which comes from the rattan interior. A machine cuts the inside of the rattan pole, into pieces small enough in diameter for the weaving. Due to the nature of this product, splits and discolorations in the rattan poles are to be expected. They even enhance the beauty and uniqueness of these handcrafted products. Rattan is among the oldest natural furniture material in use today. Unlike bamboo, which is hollow, rattan is a solid timber vine. Most wicker and rattan furniture originates from Southeast Asia (Indonesia, the Phillipines, and China) and is manufactured by hand.
