Reed is inner material from the tropical vine “calamus rotang”. It is durable, flexible, and when soaked, it is very easy to weave with.
As such, it makes a great choice for any indoor chair seat with rung or dowel construction. It’s also suitable for protected areas, if you don’t have a lot of rain or humidity. If your area is very wet, use it indoors only. Even for indoors, we recommend protecting the seat from strains by sealing with a Clear coating of Clear Weavers Stain.
Flat, Flat Oval or Round, it’s sold by the “pound”. A “pound” is the same as a “hank”, “coil” or “bundle”.
