We provide professional repairs of Thonet chairs and armchairs and split-bottom chairs with grooves. We use only material used for the original basketwork by Thonet and Fischel. We create wickerwork manually using 2.0-3-0mm pedig.
We use traditional processes
We manually repair Thonet wicker chairs according to the original and honest tradition, always respecting the type and condition of the chair or armchair. Upon request we can change the version to the groove wickerwork of chairs and armchairs, which is faster and less expensive method of renovation of chair wickerwork. However, the quality and the life of this method is not as good, compared to the manual wickerwork.
What is pedig and what is it used for?
Natural material called pedig is usually imported from tropical areas of Southeast Asia. Pedig is the inner part of the stalk of the rattan reed called Calamus rotang. The stalk can be several centimetres or 100 meters long. The wood is very light in colour and can be compared to linden wood. Pedig is used mostly for furniture manufacture, especially the wickerwork of chairs or rockers and baskets.

we renovate manually and maintain the history of the product using the best materials
Each piece of furniture has its own history, sometimes very complex and dramatic, sometimes peaceful. But never ordinary. In the time of creation it was distinctive and quality furniture. The owners knew it. We move its story further, sometimes just by pushing it along, sometimes breathing new life into it. It is only up to you, how the story continues.
