What is wicker
While many mistake wicker for fabric, it is a weaving process for rattan furniture (a fast-growing palm pant found in tropical forests). This technique was found in the furniture making found in ancient Egypt tombs. Wicker can also be used with bamboo, reed, and willow.
Today, wicker continues to prove its timeless nature, making its way into indoor and outdoor furniture. Accessorizing your home with wicker finds will add a light and refreshing look to your space. Synthetic wicker options will fair better outdoors, while organic rattan wicker will perform well indoors. This will prevent mold or sun damage from impacting the quality of the wicker.
