DANISH CORD SEATING

Instruction
book on Danish Cord Seating

Danish cord is most commonly seen on Scandinavian chairs, but can be used on all sorts of seats. It's very versatile, easy on the hands, pliable and provides a nice, comfortable seat. There is very little published information, either in book format or online, describing in detail how to weave Danish cord: our new book should rectify that.
