rattan mending

Hello!

My MIL recently asked if I wanted these beautiful antique rattan chairs she has in storage.

They both have a small defect on the arm rest. Does anyone know where to look for someone who might be able to mend this?

or how would you search for such a person?

thank you

Would cost a fortune to repair. Forget it. Google " rattan "

you could try and get a quote from
https://www.st-jakob.ch/de/flechtere...klassiker.html
It is a "Sozialunternehmen", engaged with helping people with disabilities etc.

If you feel up to it, you could have a go at mending it yourself. There are lots of youtube videos to show you how
Here's one

Thanks, very good post. Got a few chair-seats that need fixing in the cellar. Never even thought about being able to do that myself.
