Hand Caning Kalispell Mt

Hand Caning

Cane comes from the rattan palm which grows in the Orient. There are two types of caned surfaces — hand caned and machine caned.

Hand caning is hand weaved right on the chair. When you look at the seat there will be a series of holes thorough which the cane is woven and tied.
