Wonderful Wicker Furniture Weaves Magic in Your Home And Garden

What is wicker furniture? How is it made? Is it any way different from the cane or rattan furniture? These are some common questions asked whenever the subject of wicker furniture or cane/rattan furniture is mentioned. While cane furniture is made of individual cane poles fixed to frames, wicker is made from weaving natural vines and barks wrapped around frames. Both are very popular choice of furniture – for outdoors but nowadays for indoors as well. Until recently both rattan and wicker furniture were made from totally natural materials. The frames were made of strong and sturdy natural canes bent to desired shape by heating it to high temperatures. In Asia, even today, wooden and cane frames are used and traditional natural fires from bamboo, cane, and willows are used for weaving and the wicker furniture is totally hand-made from 100% natural sustainable green products.

But today, almost all wicker furniture are made using sturdy high-quality light-weight aluminium alloy frames or in some cases heavier steel frames. And the wicker used to wrap around the frames is mostly synthetic. Recycled plastic/resin, vinyl or vinyl/resin is used for making synthetic wicker material. Resin synthetic wicker equals the wicker woven from natural fibres in looks but is sturdier and ages more slowly. It is also naturally water resistant. A good quality wicker weave should be tight, uniformly woven, close together without any visible gaps and have a smooth finish. It is flexible but quite strong. But it is advisable to keep the wicker furniture under cover in shade in extreme weathers. It is easy to clean; just vacuuming it lightly and wiping with a moist cloth should be sufficient. Occasionally a lick of varnish may help. If the cushions can be removed, the frame can be quickly washed with water and wiped dry to remove any spills etc.
