Rattan, also known as rotang palm, is a fast-growing liana-like creeper that originates from the primeval forests of Southeast Asia. It can grow vines up to 200 meters long, making rattan one of the longest plants on Earth.
Solid reed fabric can be made from the outer shell of rattan, like our present TH-1/2-60-S caen webbing. It is stronger, it can be painted easily by abrasion, it is more difficult to pickle, but in this case the natural feeling of the product can be strengthened.
The better-known name of rattan webbing roll is tonett fabric, which was used in the past for the seat of chairs. Today, it is still used for repairing rattan chair seats, but since it is a well-ventilated material, it is also excellently suitable for rattan wall protectors, rattan radiator covers and rattan door panels.

What types of thonet materials are there? Which is good for what?
Should I use ½ and ⅝ hole pitch material?
There are several types of hole-punched thonet material. At Naturtrend we basically stock two halves. Their pattern can have a similar repetition of ½ and ⅝ col, you can read this from the product code. e.g. TH-½-60-S
Which one do you need? If you buy new, whichever you prefer. If you are replacing an existing one, it is important that it is the same, you can calculate it as follows:
Calculate the hole pitch.
1col - 2.54 cm
How many holes are there in 1 inch? 2.1 cm - 1 inch 1 inch 1.5 cm - 4 holes in 5.5 cm. Measure from the rightmost yarn to the rightmost yarn of the 4th hole.
5.5 cm / 2.54 cm = 2.16 cm
2.16 / 4 (holes) = ½
So the thonet webbing is ½.
How many holes are there in 1 inch? 6.9 cm has 4 holes. Measure from the rightmost yarn to the rightmost yarn of the 4th hole.
6.9 cm / 2.54 cm = 2.71 cm
2,71 / 4 = 0,677
So the thonet webbing is ⅝.
The fabric should be measured both horizontally and vertically, as the fabric may be slightly distorted.
And with old hand-stitched chairs, it is easy to get neither of the hole pitches exactly right.
