Ypu can buy burlap that looks like ribbon . Here it is used for a different purpose but you can see what it looks like.

here’s a way of using ribbon instead of sashes. This could take a  lot of ribbon though- depending on how many chairs you have to do.

I’m with you on the not liking bows part, this photo is what I was going to do if I had chair wraps!

Just a note: If you do decide to buy your fabric, check out the prices in the drapery dept at your fabric store.  Some of the curtain fabric comes in widths up to 118″.  A typical chair sash is about 8″ x 108″, so if your fabric is already 108 or wider, then you can get 4 sashes per meter of fabric.

If your fabric is only, say, 54″ wide, then you have to turn it sideways and buy 3m to get your 108″ length, and you only get 6 sashes from your 3m, compared to 12 sashes of 3m of a wider fabric.
