Furniture produced of rattan, are popularly known as wicker furniture, bamboo furniture or woven furniture. Rattan is remarkable hardwearing and at the same time a very lightweight material. We often see some of our models lasting several generations. Unlike bamboo, which is a hollow material, rattan is solid. Rattan is in the palm family and grows climbing up the trees in the rainforest. About 80% of the worlds rattan comes from Indonesia and it grows naturally without disturbing the existing structure and balance in the rainforest. The rattan cord can grow up to 185 meters long and there is more than 200 known species of the rattan plant. To maintain the rattan production it is necessary to preserve the trees, why the rattan plant indirect helps care for the rain forest in Indonesia. Rattan is one of the fastest growing materials, which also filter the air and converts most CO2 to oxygen. It regenerates it self in a cycle on 5-7 years. Rattan is resistant against heat, cold, moist and temperature fluctuations, and is a sustainable material, that fulfils our production philosophy of ethics and common sense.
