As a professional seat weaver, I am usually not in favor of altering the true nature of a hand cane seat or puncturing the seat with nails, but the fibre seats reduced the overall cost for the customer. As an artist I was very pleased with the finished look. I used a dark stain on the boarder and a lighter stain on the pillowed centre. My customer was delighted.
Overall satisfactory but was disappointed in the thickness. I remember them as being 1/4" thick.. Hope they hold up to weight.
We love our fiber replacement chair seats! The old caning had dried out and unraveled. We chose the basketweave pattern and really like them. They are nice and firm, yet comfortable. One thing...I would recommend the real leather for those of larger stature.
