It’s a good question. Well frankly, when we started in the industry, woven synthetic rattan was the new outdoor material. We fell in love with it.
Over the years we have experimented with other
materials. Stainless steel is not stainless. It will ‘tea
stain’ and rust if not regularly maintained. Powder
coated aluminium with mesh have their problems.
The aluminium gets hot to touch in the sun and the
mesh is not very robust and after some time is prone
to sag and mould. Difficult to replace too. Teak, if not
treated with a marine varnish will ‘patina’ – go greyish
and not look very premium, especially when
combined with modern materials. Bottom line, we
found they all don’t add up to great looks and
performance. Not good for clients. Not good for us.
WE FOCUS ON WOVEN
So we leave it to others to make products from these materials. And we just focus on making best quality synthetic rattan furniture in the world with the best woven craftsmen in the world. Not only does synthetic rattan last with its robust physical properties and low maintenance, it comes in a wide choice of colours and profiles allowing greater design freedom. It's also repairable too.
After more than fifteen years in the industry, common sense and client feedback have taught us woven furniture is enduring above all other materials. So, we focus on producing the best quality woven outdoor furniture.
