Rattan Core cane is machined from the pithy centre of the rattan vine.  Because it is processed it is available in many accurate sizes.  It is popular for basketry and other craft work  because it is very pliable when wet and will readily accept dyes and stains.


Peel cane is mainly used for weaving patterned screens and chair seats, but can also be used for binding handles.

Peel Cane is $ 686.90/ kg so please contact us with your requirements and it can be weighed up for you.

Pith Cane comes in coils of approx. 500gm or kg, depending upon the thickness and is sold by the coil. For smaller amounts please contact us and it can be weighed out - please note that freight is additional for part coils.

Sea grass cord is a twisted product which looks like fine rope or coarse string.  When new, it is the colour of freshly mown grass but mellows to a rich golden colour as it ages.  It is used in the making of sea grass chairs and as a decorative material in basketry and other crafts. Our standard size is 3.5/ 4mm thick however other weights can be ordered by request and they are approximately 450gm coils. The standard 3.5/ 4mm is approximately 65m long.
