What is rattan?
Rattan is a plant that hangs from palm trees and is a naturally growing vine-like species that is native to tropical regions. Rattans are extensively used for making baskets and furniture. When cut into sections, rattan can be used as wood to make furniture. Rattan accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colors, and it can be made into various styles. It’s a material and style that has never completely gone out of style, and it’s that timeless quality that draws so many people in.
What is the benefit in using rattan in your home?
Rattan is strong and durable. Natural rattan is grown under harsh conditions in tropical areas, and the vines protect themselves against rain and hot climate. It is quite resistant to any kind of wear and tear. Rattan also requires a little care as it is stain and weather resistant, making it a good material to use outdoors.
