One of the big trends we are starting to see in the year is that we have been braver to also use the natural materials used in the decoration. As here with rattan. A species of the cool and tubes, flexible, of klatrepalmer, which is related with the cane. A trend that is only now beginning to sprout – and that we predict will be even bigger in 2021.
Rattan is a naturally renewable palm that grows in the tropical regions of Africa and Asia and is used for furniture, crafts and building material. Rattan is still an invaluable part of rural livelihoods in South and Southeast asia.

Here in the year are we also aware to bring naturligheden into the home’s décor, and we are as consumers become more curious about new and exciting types of wood and træteknikker here in this year.
Wood from tropical rainforests
Almost all rattan is assembled from tropical rainforests. This type of wood is a unique resource because it is easier to harvest than wood, and also easier to transport, while it also grows faster than the trees. The majority of the world’s rattaner found in Indonesia’s forests are distributed on the islands of Borneo, Sulawesi and Sumbaw, with the rest of the world’s supply delivered by, among others, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Bangladesh.
“The Rattan has been known to grow up to hundreds of metres long and rattan tubes cut in the woods and processed partially, before they are sold. Canes with small diameters dried in the sun and smoked often with sulfur. Big sticks, boiled in oil to make them dry and to protect them against insects”
Furniture manufacturing with the hardy rattan wood
Most rattaner differ from other palms in having slender stems with a diameter of 2 to 5 cm with a long knot between the leaves. And wood looks like on the surface also bamboo. But in opposition to bamboo is rattan wood stems solid, where most other species need structural support and cannot stand alone.
In general, processed raw rattan for multiple products, that can be used as materials for furniture production. From a strand of rattan peel off the palm tree, usually of the order to be used as ratting vævemateriale. The remaining “core” of the rattan can be used for various purposes in furniture production. Rattan is a very good material, mainly because it is lightweight, durable, robust and to a certain extent, flexible.
