What is 'rattan’ anyway?

Commonly referred to as ‘wicker’, rattan is the design trend that never goes out of fashion, its strength and versatility has seen it used for everything from furniture to light shades. Rattan has never been more on trend than it is right now. 

Are 'rattan’ and 'wicker’ the same thing?

Not quite, rattan is a flexible and sustainable material most commonly found in South East Asia, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to timber and much easier to harvest than most tropical wood.

Wicker is a technique for making products woven from any one of a variety of pliable plant materials such as; willow, rattan, reed, bamboo, and even synthetic materials.
