Hand Caning and Weaving by
Mitchie Garlington
 
 An ancient art,  caning and weaving has been around for thousands of years.  Today hand weaving is nearly a lost art.  See some samples below of a master weaver.
 
Mitchie Garlington is an experienced caner and weaver.  She replaces chair seats and backs for the public as well as maintaining family heirlooms.  Call her for an estimate if you need chair seat replacements.                770-251-6484      

                   

The most intricate weave is seven-step handwoven through holes predrilled in chair. (above)
 
 
The very basic, herringbone weave, is still very popular. 
 
 Above an example of fibre rush.  This weave is very popular on ladder back dining room chairs.

These are  just a few examples of the many available options for seat replacement.
 
Wicker repair is also included in her weaving skills.
