A brief history of rattan
You have probably come across rattan garden furniture; it is one of the most widely used materials for its strength and durability. It is believed some form of rattan has been used for furniture and basket making since early human history. Rattan is not one type of plant, but 13 different genera with 600 different species.
Rattan furniture now employs a man-made material thanks to modern breakthroughs and the invention of polymers. Although PE rattan is still constructed of weaved strands, the foundation substance is a synthetic resin. Rain may seriously harm things left outside in the UK, which is usually damp in some way or another. PE rattan is more sturdy and weather resistant, which means it will last longer.
