Loose strands of natural rattan and cane can easily be repaired

Loose strands of rattan or cane can just be glued back into place with Superglue.
If there are pieces of weave missing, replace with new material, usually available from a craft outlet.
- Cut the old strands out back to good cane.
- Measure a generous length to fill the gap and soak in water for 30 – 45 minutes to soften; this makes it easier to weave.
- Dry off any excess water and weave through the damaged section of furniture. Pull through with a fine-nosed pair of pliers.
- Glue the ends into place.
