What Is The Difference Between Rattan And Wicker, Natural Rattan And Synthetic Material?

- Oct 23, 2018-

Many people, including furniture salespersons, tend to believe that wicker furniture and rattan furniture are about the same.  But actually, there is a remarkable difference between the two.

Rattan belongs to the palm family. So it is a specific material, highly suitable for furniture because it is light, durable and relatively flexible. Wicker is the process used to weave various materials into the finished product.  That means that wicker furniture can be made from different materials such as bamboo, straw, willow and even rattan. Recently, synthetic materials are also being used for manufacturing wicker furniture.

Natural rattan furniture is “natural” and therefore the first choice among the eco-friendly furniture product lovers. It is more unique than synthetic rattan furniture, but it is best when it’s kept in a dry location. In the indoor area, every kind of rattan furniture is absolutely maintenance free.

Although rattan furniture is very lightweight and isn’t difficult to move or handle, taking it outdoors or covering it with a furniture cover every time you think it might rain becomes a nuisance. A perfect place for a rattan furniture is inside the house or on a covered porch.


Weather-resistant synthetic rattan or painted wicker furniture also called “all-weather wicker” is much more durable and looks just as elegant as that made from natural rattan, and can be used indoors as well as outdoors. The other big advantage of synthetic rattan furniture is that it’s very easy to care for and keep clean using just warm water and washing up liquid.

No matter which of them according to your taste you choose, a rattan furniture placed in the garden or in your own home allows you to relax after a long day.
