Rattan isn't wicker, but wicker can be rattan. Confused? Keep reading and you soon won't be.
Rattan is a prolific climbing vine found in tropical climates throughout the world. Some species can grow more than 300 feet in length. It's abundant, sustainable and incredibly versatile.
Wicker is a general term used for woven furniture and home accents, and has been popular since the pharaohs. How's that for a design trend? It's often made with rattan, but not always. Wicker can also be crafted of bamboo, twigs, seagrasses – even banana leaves. Some of Amanda's wicker accent pieces, including her signature lanterns, are handmade from bamboo.
At Amanda Lindroth, we make our wicker furniture frames from rattan because it's naturally strong, pliable and beautiful. We use only the highest grades of rattan, hand selected for its smooth, uniform color and dense grain.
