With a reputation for excellent customer service and a commitment to eco-friendly practices, HH Perkins is the go-to source for weavers and basket makers nationwide.

Whether a beginner or an experienced weaver, the company has everything you need to create beautiful and functional woven items.

Natural Strand Cane

One of the most popular products offered by HH Perkins is Natural Strand Cane. This all-natural product is grown in the wildernesses of Indonesia. Strand Cane weaves chair seats and is used on other woven items, including crafts and baskets. Strand Cane is carefully threaded through the drilled holes around the perimeter of the chair seat, producing stunning designs and patterns. HH Perkins carries various sizes, so selecting the correct diameter based on seat hole measurements is essential. See the chart in the strand cane section to determine which size Natural Strand Cane you need for your project, or give us a call anytime at (203) 787-1123.

Fibre Rush

Another popular material offered by HH Perkins is Fibre Rush. Fibre Rush is an excellent alternative to Natural Strand Cane or Natural Rush, when you want a softer, more durable material for your chair or weaving projects. Fibre Rush is a popular product among Fibre Artists, seat weavers, and crafters.

Danish Cord

Danish Cord is another popular material offered by HH Perkins. A powerful, durable type of weaving material, Danish Cord is perfect for seat weaving and various basketry applications. Danish Cord is available in different sizes and colors, so choosing what you need for your project is easy. The two main styles of Danish Cord are Laced and Unlaced. They are both 3-ply weaves. Laced Danish Cord has a tighter weave that resembles rope, whereas Unlaced Danish Cord is smooth to the touch, and the weave is less pronounced. Black and White Danish Cord comes in Unlaced only. We sell Danish Cord in 2lb coils, 10lb Reels, and we'll even roll-off 1lb coils for customers.

Seat Weaving Supplies

HH Perkins also carries seat weaving supplies for different types of weaving, including hand caning Natural Strand Cane, Cane Webbing, Reed Spline, Hong Kong Grass, Reeds & Splints, and Pre-Twisted Natural Rush. The company offers a wide selection of tools to help you quickly complete the job, including Chisels, Caning Awls, glues, wooden caning pegs, wedges, and more. There are also helpful seat-weaving tutorials on the company's YouTube & Facebook channels for various furniture projects. HH Perkins also has a great selection of books to help you with your project.
