The American Rattan Blog is Maintained by the "Rattan Man(TM)"

Welcome to our Blog



My name is Mark Mosher founder of American Rattan and owner of the trademark "Rattan Man(TM)". I personally love Rattan and Wicker furniture so I started the company in 2002 after retiring from 22 years in the U.S. Air Force. This blog will hopefully be the best resource for all things related to Wicker furniture.



Indoor Wicker Furniture



So just what is Wicker and Wicker furniture? Rattan vines 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. Many of our collections incorporate both Wicker weave and Rattan poles into furniture designs. Factories that build this furniture are located in the Philippines, Indonesia, and here in the USA. Chinese factories do not build this furniture.



Outdoor Wicker 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.
