Binding Cane

Binding Cane

Binding cane, also known as narrow binder cane, is used in many products including basketry, wicker and rattan furniture. It is a very versatile material; 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.

Similar to strand cane insofar that it is made from a rattan peel; however it has been cut wider and thicker. It is carried in sizes ranging from 3.5mm to 6mm in width and is commonly sold in 25 foot coils.

Tip: When using binder cane, separate the long strands from the strands before starting on your project. Use the long strands first in seat weaving first to have less binder to attach as you progress.
