The Timeless Beauty of Rattan Weaving
Rattan is a vine that is abundant in the forests of the Philippines. It is exceptionally sustainable as it renews itself naturally every 5 to 7 years.
It gives the local villages livelihood in the form of furniture and basket weaving without having to cut down trees. Wicker weaving does not rely on machinery which can pollute the environment. Men and women can do it safely in their homes without the need for extensive production facilities.
Since it is a natural material, it will naturally biodegrade. Rattan is very hardwearing, it will not unravel, break, or crack easily ensuring that furniture and handbags woven from this material will last many years if taken care of.
Rattan furniture is meant for indoor or shaded areas. Do not expose to rain.
