Rush & Cane Restoration

Farcroft carries out restoration to rush and caning work, ranging from cleaning and conservation to full replacement. This specialist work is still carried out by hand as it has been for many centuries.

We can reproduce virtually any pattern including, double cane, medallion backs, close cane work, and secret caning. On more modern pieces of furniture, pre-woven cane is sometimes used.

Depending on the level of damage, residual deposits such as soot can be removed using sensitive cleaning processes and refinished. Where more serious damage has occurred, rush can be replaced using traditional hand-weaving methods and refinished with a protective shellac coating.

Restoration is an invisible art. Done sensitively, the many hours of meticulous planning and preparation, skilled craftsmanship and dedicated, loving care that go into bringing an object or environment back to its best are invisible to all but the most trained and experienced eye.

Years of expertise have led us to develop specialist techniques, enabling us to undertake many different types of restoration
