Rattan is a natural fibre made from the stem of a certain kind of palm. Flexible and pliant, it is easy to work and weave into various objects. A typical material for outdoor furniture in the fifties, it is actually quite delicate and must be treated carefully when used outside, protected from bad weather and aggression by atmospheric agents. It is recommended for use in covered spaces.
We recommend washing the surface with a non-abrasive sponge and neutral soap, rubbing gently.
