Q: What is rattan?
Rattan is a climbing plant related to palm tree leaves found in Southeast Asia. Branches and leaves are individually selected, treated, and prepared, then handwoven by skilled artisans into the desired shape.
Did you know:
The economic value of rattan can help protect forest land where it grows by providing an alternative to logging. This means that instead of razing a forest, rattan can be harvested and the forest protected. Rattan is easier to harvest and transport as it does not require heavy machinery. Rattan is the perfect plant to be used as a tool for forest maintenance, as it is a crop that depends on trees!
Q: What is the difference between wicker and rattan?
