Weaving Materials - Shaker Tape


Click on this link for:



Cotton webbing is traditionally used on Shaker style chair seats, and is also popular in basketry as tote handles and backpack straps. Sadly, Shaker Tape is no longer being produced in the United States. Currently, it comes from Taiwan, and is 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.

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
