Where To Buy Cane Webbing
I knew that I wanted to incorporate some caning into my son’s room makeover and I was surprised at how limited the resources were to purchase it. Although cane webbing is becoming increasingly popular in home decor, the mainstream market has not quite caught up yet. But don’t worry, I did the hard work for you and scoured the web for the best places to find it depending on your needs.
Cane Webbing Sources For Larger Projects:
Frank’s Supply is probably the best resource online if you are needing a large amount of cane webbing. If you plan to build or repurpose a large piece of furniture and want to add caning, then this will probably be your best bet to find exactly what you need.
Franks Supply is great because you can order all different weaves, sizes of mesh, colors, and types of caning. The price per foot decreases with the more feet that you purchase, making this a great option if you are needing a large amount. The width of caning available ranges from 16″ – 24″ You do have to pay shipping and your order must be a $10 minimum.
Prices are per foot, ranging from $6.25-$16.50.
Caning.com is another online retailer that is a great option if you need a larger amount of caning. While they do not have as many option as Franks Supply, there are still a number of different weaves and sizes to choose from. They also sell a variety of caning supplies as well as other craft supplies.
The pricing for Caning.com is per inch (instead of per foot like Franks). Unlike Franks Supply, the price only decreases if you order an entire roll which is 600 inches. However, it may be a better deal than Franks depending on the amount of caning that you need.
Prices range from $1.26-$2.48 per inch.
Cane and Basket does not have as many options to choose from as the 2 sources above, but if you are needing a large amount of caning, then it might be the most economical option.
The price for cane webbing is also per inch (the same as caning.com), but you can also purchase a 50′ roll if you need a large amount. You do have to pay shipping as well.
Prices range from $.40 per inch to $337 per 50′ roll.
Basket Makers Catalogue sells a variety of cane and basket supplies. They do not have a large selection of cane webbing to choose from, but they do have a few different styles. Basket Makers Catalogue sells their cane webbing by the foot and it seems to be much higher than Franks.
If you are looking for a specific type of cane that Franks doesn’t carry, or if you need some unique supplies related to baskets, then Basket Maker’s Catalogue may be a good choice for you.
Prices range from $12.95 – $19.95 per foot.
Surprisingly, Online Fabric Store also carries cane webbing. Although they only have 5 different cane styles to choose from, they do offer free shipping on all orders over $150 which might make this a great choice if you are ordering a large amount.
The caning at Online Fabric Store is also sold by the foot and comes in either 18″ or 24″ wide. The prices per foot are cheaper than Basket Makers Catalogue, but there are only a few options to choose from.
Prices range from $8.75 – $13.25 per foot with FREE shipping on order over $150.
H.H. Perkins has a large variety of cane webbing to choose from. From open weave, to modern or even closed weave, they have something to offer. This might be a great choice if you need a very specific type of cane webbing to match a piece of furniture that you already own.
H.H. Perkins charges per inch on all of their cane webbing. I did notice that many of their styles were sold out, so they may not have the inventory that Franks does, but it still is a fabulous option to check out.
Prices range from $.70 – $3.00 per inch.
Cane Webbing Sources For Smaller Projects:
Michaels sells open weave cane webbing online. It does go in and out of stock. If you notice that it is out of stock, try checking back in a few days. This is a good option if you don’t need a large amount of caning, because you can have it shipped to your store for free.
Another bonus to purchasing your cane webbing at Michaels, is that you can use an online coupon, making this one of the most economical choices. While there aren’t very many varieties to choose from, it’s a great choice for a small project.
Prices range from $9.95 per foot, plus an extra discount if you use a coupon and possible free shipping to your local store.
Surprisingly, Walmart also sells one variety of cane webbing. It comes in one 18X18 piece for $18.96 online. This isn’t the cheapest choice, but if you only need a little bit of caning, it may be a good option.
Like Michaels, you could have it shipped to your local Walmart store to avoid having to pay shipping costs.
Price is $18.95 for an 18×18 square.
I was able to find one retailer that sells cane webbing on Ebay. There is only one type of cane webbing to choose from, but it does come in a variety of widths.
This caning is sold per foot and the price varies, depending on how wide you need your cane webbing to be. There is also a shipping charge.
Prices range from $6.75 – $8.75 per foot.
Amazon has a few different options for cane webbing. Most of their choice include an entire cane webbing kit, which means you are unneccessarily paying for the kit when you only need the webbing. They do have one choice of a 10 foot roll of webbing, but if you are needing that large of an amount, one of the other retailers would be more economical.
If you are in a pinch and need free 2-day shipping on cane webbing, then Amazon is worth checking out.
Even though it may not be the easiest thing to find, there are a number of great resources for where to buy cane webbing online. Hopefully you will find the perfect kind for your DIY projects!
