Natural Rattan Furniture: Even more than with synthetic rattan, the question of whether or not rattan furniture is eco-friendly seems to arise about items made from the actual material extracted from palm trees. Any natural material will always bring about doubts as to whether or not using it may be harming the environment, and in the case of rattan, this is no different.
Is Rattan Furniture Eco-Friendly? Rattan garden furniture is perhaps the most popular decorative item for gardens, patios and outdoor areas across the western world. The material’s sturdy, weather-resistant nature and low maintenance requirements, make it a perennial favourite among home-owners; as a result, both natural and synthetic rattan garden furniture are common sights in homes the world over.
Synthetic Materials: Aside from the natural fibres detailed in the lines above, there exist a number of different materials for outdoor furniture which are entirely man-made.
However, as the popularity of rattan garden furniture grows, so too do questions surrounding it. Home-owners naturally find themselves curious about several aspects regarding this material, such as its build quality, the manufacturing process, or even whether this material is ‘green.’
If your a do-it-your-selfer you can find websites that help you create a special piece for your home. In this way you save some money and you get a sense of accomplishment for having created the item yourself. Keep in mind that you may want to start with something small such as a lamp or other accessory. I have seen bigger projects that look very interesting and a bit challenging so make sure you don't get in over your head and waste money on materials you won't use.
