Diy Danish Modern Chair & Furniture Webbing Repair Kit:
Reupholstery supplies are not always easy to find in your area, and fabulous Danish furniture is out there waiting to be repaired and enjoyed.Rattan, wicker and other open frames also use this type of webbing for seating.
This elastic tough stretch webbing and accompaning v-clips quickly and easily rewebs modern midcentury seating that you love, while providing optimal resistance level for the foundation of your seat. It has become an industry standard and is certified for strength and aging. It retains its elasticity after years of use. 2" wide, it replaces old dried up, stretched and broken original rubber webbing straps.
All frames are a little bit different, but if you have 6 or less strips at 22" (55.88 cm) or less, this will fix you up in no time. You'll get:
• 3 3/4 yds (3.5 m) of uncut webbing
• 12 clips
• Printed instruction sheet (there's also a blogpost on it on my website, millerupholstering (dot) com - it's super easy.
• Practice clip and strap sample piece to test how far you need to flatten the v-clip to fit into the frame's slot.
Simply flatten with pliers/vise or hammer one end down as flat as need-be to go into frame's back webbing slot. Stretch to the front of frame, mark your cut, make the cut, apply a v-clip to this front end and stretch into place. Whool-la! Takes about a 1/2 hour or less.
YOUR FRAME MAY UTILIZE STAPLES, NAILS OR DOWELS TO HOLD WEBBING inquire by sending pictures if you're not sure this kit will work for you or if you need more materials for multiple pieces of furniture.

Special Note On Original Fagas Webbing:
Furniture frames that originally used support strips where the metal clip of a very thin gauge is fused with rubber webbing at both ends are called Fagas strips. These are often difficult to substitute with the type of v-clip and elastic webbing offered in this kit. If you think your furniture has used fagas strips but aren't sure, please email me a picture of the original clip/strap assembly and the slot in frame where it's supposed to go - Email here through etsy or directly to info[at]millerupholstering.com and I'll advice as best I can.
PS - I was the first one on to offer this kit in 2005ish for my daughter far away from home who wanted to fix the webbing in a teak chair she found in a dumpster. It worked for her and it'll work for you! Since then, hundreds of people worldwide have repaired their seating themselves. A few other sellers have copied me and even went so far as to borrow my pictures without permission. All photos you see here are by Miller Upholstering
