A twisted paper product for use in weaving chair seats, that's cheaper and easier to use than cattail leaves or bulrush. Man Made Rush comes in a continuous strand and is durable and lasts considerably longer than natural rush. It's frequently used on weaving seats of Colonial style and other post and rail modern chair seats, and also used in wicker furniture from the 1910s-1940s. Paper fibre rush, paper twist, or artificial rush as it's sometimes called, was invented in 1904 when there was an embargo against importation of the rattan reed from the Orient. This forced the wicker furniture manufacturers to search for an alternative construction material, and the new synthetic twisted paper filled the bill. 4mm dia.
