This item is handcrafted in rattan, which is a climbing plant that grows like lianas on the trees in the Indonesian rainforest. Rattan is often confused with bamboo, but unlike hollow bamboo, rattan is a solid material. This makes rattan products very durable and almost impossible to wear out.

When steamed for 10-15 minutes, rattan can be formed by hand using old traditional manufacturing techniques and a few simple tools. Rattan comes in 600 different variants and at Sika-Design we only use the two best qualities called Tohiti and Manau. Read more about rattan here.

MAINTENANCE Rattan requires no maintenance but can be wiped with a lightly dampened cloth if needed.
