My name is Mark Mosher founder of American Rattan and owner of the trademark "Rattan Man(TM)". I love the tropical and coastal look of Rattan and Wicker furniture. So much so that I started the company in 2002 after retiring from 22 years in the U.S. Air Force. I hope you will find my blog a good resource for all things related to indoor and outdoor Wicker furniture.
Introduction to Indoor Wicker Furniture and Outdoor Wicker furniture.
Indoor Wicker and Wicker furniture is made from Rattan vines that grow wild in the Indonesian and Philippines jungles. The vines are cut and dried into what are referred to as Cane or Rattan poles. Wicker strands are sliced off the poles and then woven by hand to make beautiful furniture. Rattan furniture is made by wetting and heating natural Rattan poles and bending them to form furniture.
Outdoor Wicker and Rattan furniture is made from poly-resin man made material that is weather resistant. The looks and quality of outdoor Wicker is usually very good even though its made by machine. If the quality is good enough it can used indoors. Manufacturers are located in China, Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia.
