Rattan is the name for around 600 species of palms from the tropical regions in Africa, Asia and Australasia. Despite the fact that it’s predominantly used in furniture manufacturing, thanks to its durability, aesthetics and low maintenance requirements it’s becoming increasingly popular among craftsmen and artists. Moreover, the production process of hand weaving gives additional value to the object, may it be a piece of furniture, a home accessory or a Christmas decoration.
