"I am a chair seat weaver in North East, USA. I just had a customer bring a "The Chair" with the Johannes Hansen stamp on it. I was doing a search to see if this weave pattern was the original, and it is. The cane weave is now broken and they want it replaced. My question is, if I reweave it, will it loose the value. And, i could probably figure out the pattern to reweave, but if there are step by step directions that would be so helpful. Thank for your help. Vikki"

Devaluation is moot. The chair needs therapy. I happen to like vintage weave married to a properly repaired weave. In fact...I like that combo more than all new weave. Regardless, the chair really isn't a chair if it is not functional as a chair. And I'd like to see the repair... on your chair..if that's cool.

Photos of condition would help, but I would investigate replacing broken strands.
