Rattan, which is 100% natural, has gained quite a bit of popularity over the years due to its good proprieties and timeless look. The material is made out of vines that grow around trees in the tropical jungle of Kalimatan, Indonesia and is easily recognizable.

Rattan can be used for many different things, from tea boxes to coffee tables to even chairs, an endless amount of opportunities wait for those who use this.

Rattan is harvested during the rainy season, where the strands grow as large as 15 to 30 feet and then spends several weeks lying in mud baths until it turns grey. After the strands are completely dry, they are sorted by color and thickness and are ready to be processed.

No two rattan products are alike and can be used for virtually anything. The ideal of craftsmanship, the product has gotten exposure from a series of films by Henk Teusnissen that display the benefits of this material.
