Rattan/Wicker

  • Rattan is a natural, unbleached material, made from the inner tissue of the stem of the tropical palm, Calamus Rotang. Therefore, the colour of rattan may naturally vary slightly. This is not to be considered a fault, but a characteristic of a natural material.
  • Rattan will dry out and turn hard if placed in rooms with low humidity (i.e. rooms with central heating). This will increase the risk of breakages.
  • Rattan should be cleaned approximately once a month. Use 1 table spoon of soap flakes to 1 litre of warm water and allow the solution to penetrate into the rattan. Any remaining water can be wiped off with a clean, damp cloth.
