Natural rattan has always been one of the most popular choices to use for outdoor furniture and in recent years this popularity has skyrocketed. However, this popularity has spawned a new industry in manufacturing synthetic rattan. The increase in popularity of rattan has driven the price of natural rattan to the point where many buyers can no longer afford it and are looking for a more affordable option.
Synthetic Rattan Offers the Same Beauty as Natural Rattan
This has brought about the rise in popularity of synthetic rattan. It looks as good as natural rattan, takes little to no care other than an occasional hosing off and costs significantly less. One more reason that this type of rattan is popular is that unlike natural rattan it will not develop mold or mildew. This means it can be left outside in the elements for a very long time without suffering any ill effects.
