Wicker furniture is really just a big basket! The same techniques are used to restore damaged wicker as used in basketry. Every piece is different so must be seen to give price quote.

Professional Wicker Repair

Category: Art / Creative
Description
Wicker furniture is really just a really big basket! Old Wicker is made better than most of today's wicker. Much of the stuff from the 70's probably didn't survive...Many of the same techniques are used to restore wicker as are used in basketry, yet every piece is unique. Depending on the extent of damage most wicker can be repaired without it being too cost prohibitive.
