Rattan is a variety of palm that is frequently found in the tropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Australia. Because it was less challenging to cultivate, harvest, and transport than lumber during its first known uses, rattan quickly gained popularity. Today, rattan can be found in some shape/form in most homes.
Rattan is the palm material that is harvested. Wicker is a style of weaving that dates as far back as 3000 BC. Rattan can be woven into wicker, but not all wicker is rattan. Various natural and artificial materials, such as willow, bamboo, reed, and synthetic resin, can also be weaved into rattan.
Both rattan furniture and non-rattan wicker furniture have their pros and cons.
If left in the sun, natural rattan furniture is prone to fading, so it’s recommended for indoor use exclusively. On the other hand, furniture constructed of synthetic materials or painted wicker is not known to fade when exposed to sunshine. As a result, they may be utilized both indoors and outside.

Whether you choose wicker or rattan furniture, be sure to maintain, cover, and clean it frequently. While synthetic rattan furniture is typically weather-proof, wicker furniture may be more vulnerable to environmental factors like rain and dampness. Regardless of your decision, storing it in a garden shed while not in use or during the off-season will extend its useful life.
