Rattan is a climbing plant that grows like vines on the trees in the rainforest. As it regenerates in the span of 5 to 7 years, rattan is one of the most sustainable materials for furniture manufacturing. Rattan is a strong and durable material, and when steamed it can be formed by hand, using traditional manufacturing techniques. Rattan is solid which makes it very durable and almost impossible to wear out. Rattan comes in hundreds of varieties and from these only a few can be used for furniture production. At Sika-Design we harvest our rattan in the Indonesian islands, where we only use the two best qualities called Tohiti and Manau.
MAINTENANCE Rattan requires no maintenance. It can be washed with a damp cloth if needed.
