Used cardboard can be sliced lengthwise (along the channels) into one inch strips and tightly woven into a strong packing material. With the loose ends fixed with glue, woven cardboard would be given a second life as an inexpensive, environment-friendly fiber product.

This term has instead to do with how modern paper is made and has nothing to do with my idea [FarmerJohn, Oct 04 2004]

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Weaving a web of pulp FJ ?
||A good thought. Unfortunately, both woven paper and woven cardboard are already available.
||I see a line of cardboard outdoor furniture falling apart in the rain.
||[ldishler] Does the commercial use of woven cardboard exist, not just craft basket making?
||For woven paper, yes--it's used extensively for wallpaper, and braided paper is used for chairs. There is mention of (handmade) woven cardboard, but I don't see any commercial manufacturers of it, (and I'd doubt that there would be).
||Diposable furniture. "Now available in packs of 10!"
