Weaving Materials - Shaker Tape

Cotton webbing is traditionally used on Shaker style chair seats. It is also popular in basketry as handles and backpack straps. When possible, our Shaker tape is the authentic, original American-made tape. (See note below in red.) Colorfast. Sold in whole yard increments only. Rolls are NOT one continuous length. There will be an additional charge to cut tape to specific lengths. Formula for figuring yardage for seats is at the bottom of this page.
Shaker Tape is available in: 5/8" & 1" widths.
Sorry, No returns on cut goods.
Note: US Shaker Tape is currently only being made available in custom orders of 100 roll per color lots. As we are unable to stock this much tape, we are replacing the Shaker Tape with material from Taiwan.

Formula for Measuring Amount of Shaker Tape Needed For A Seat:

Answer is in yards

#1 - Measure the width of the seat at the widest point (in inches).
#2 - Measure the depth of the seat at the deepest point (in inches).
#3 - Multiply the width by the depth.
#4 - Divide by 9 for 1" Tape.
     Or - Divide by 5.3 for 5/8" Tape
