Paper Fibre Rush Cord

Following on from the driftwood chairs in the last post, the pretty Arts & Crafts chairs that we started last week went home yesterday and they too were woven in the thin version of the same paper fibre material.

The little stool was also purchased by the same customers and woven to match. A handsome trio!
A good substitute for hand twisted real rush, the paper is quicker to use and gives a good hardwearing seat that is not as attractive to pets as the real thing - it doesn't smell of the river, sea or fish!

Enjoyed watching your rattan video.

I've just been on your shop website and it is really comprehensive. Total beginner here wanting to weave two Orkney stools. They are a project and if I enjoy it I'll just keep on buying them to repair. The dirty old seats may be original but I don't want them in the house with decades of dirt ground into them.
