COTTON CORD

SitUpon Seats Shop - cotton cord
Our cotton cord comes in a variety of lovely colours, suitable for all decors, and for a variety of craft projects including seatweaving and macrame.

It's soft and easy to use, strong enough to withstand many years of use, and can be worked in a variety of interesting patterns using 2 colours. 

Our SitUpon Stool Book contains a number of suitable patterns. 

You can also weave the traditional rush pattern in cotton cord, but because it's a little thinner than seagrass or rush, it's often better to work it in double strands. 
(See our SitUpon Rush Pattern Book for more details on this.)

3.5mm [approx] COTTON CORD, 150 metres, WHITE
Please note this roll is 3 times as long as the others.
Also it comes from a different factory from the coloured cord,
and may be very slightly thinner.
I've used both types together on a seat, however, and they work well.

4mm  [approx] NATURAL FLAX CORD
A little thicker than the cotton cords, flax is a lovely silvery colour and easy to use. It does tend to sag a little, so it's important to pack the seat well if  you're working the rush pattern.

THE SITUPON STOOL BOOK
(new edition)
Completely updated June 2020, this book is full of colour diagrams and photos, and describes the traditional chequerboard pattern commonly seen on seagrass stools, as well as a number of other woven patterns that can be used on rectangular seats of various types. Some patterns are unique to this book, designed by Ally McGurk.

THE SITUPON RUSH PATTERN BOOK  
BRAND NEW EDITION 
As well as describing the traditional rush pattern on rectangular and trapezoid seats, this new, updated edition covers more unusual patterns, and also some of the myriad methods of dealing with drop-in seats. Loads of new full-colour photos and diagrams. It covers the use of ready twisted rush, paper rush, seagrass and other suitable materials. (Note that it does not go into the use of natural hand-twisted rush, as we believe this is a technique that really needs a hands-on teacher.)

  2. The needles that I wanted to buy went into my basket, but the cotton cord didn't despite trying several times. I left the site disappointed

    1. Hello - I've just spotted your comment. So sorry I didn't respond at the time, as we could have helped. We're supposed to get notifications when someone comments, but it obviously didn't work this time. I hope you managed to get some cord in the end.
