Seat Weaving Supplies is the internet mail order sister site to Former Glory specialist restorers and seat bottomers. All material supplied is of the very best quality currently available and always competitively priced. Every item of stock is carefully stored to optimize freshness to ensure ease of use. Most importantly we know how to use everything in stock so can help you to choose the right material for the right application. Don't be shy, if you have a question about anything, just ask! We operate our mail order service from South East Dorset, not far from the Hampshire border. Phone 01202 895859. We don't have an online ordering facility because we like to talk to our customers!

To navigate the site you will find a vertical bar on the left hand side of every page. The green buttons will take you to the main category page which will give information on material recognition, types and a little history about that method of seating. The sub-sections below each category will take you to the dedicated page for that specialist material - sizes, quantities and prices.
