Canoe Seat Webbing

These cow rawhide full grain laces are ideal for restringing canoe seats.  The full grain laces are best for lacing canoe seats because there is less damage from water to the grain than with the split laces.  The most common size used for canoe seats in full-grain is 1/4".  If split-grain is used, the most common size is 3/8". The amount of lacing required depends upon the pattern used.   Please note that the thickness is approximate, and that these are continuous lacings with the odd exception that a piece gets broken here or there.

For other projects, see our entry for Rawhide Lacing.

Please note: rawhide lacing is stiff and must be wetted before use.  It will then dry stiff.  We have had customers order rawhide laces thinking that they are getting a nice soft lace and are disappointed because it is stiff.

Care of Rawhide

The most important thing for rawhide, especially for snowshoes, is to never let them freeze when the lacing is wet.  Store the canoe seat, snowshoes, etc. away from the sun in a cool dry place.  Varnishing the rawhide is prevents it from getting wet.  Re-varnishing once every year is also recommended.
