Rattan is a natural product that is made from the stem core of the tropical palm, Calamus Rotang. Calamus Rotang is a climbing palm that has long, flexible vines that can be over 100 meters long and up to approximately 4.5 cm thick. The palm has leaves with strong thorns and grows like vines up the trees in the rainforest.

Carl Hansen & Søn uses rattan from plantations in Indonesia, ensuring a product of the highest quality. Rattan has a beautiful and natural color spectrum which varies from yellow to light brown nuances.

Normal cleaning and maintenance

Rattan is a strong, natural material and usually requires no maintenance. Loose dust and dirt are removed most easily by vacuuming. If vacuuming is not sufficient, the braid can be cleaned with a damp cloth. To avoid stains, remove any spilled liquids as soon as possible.

To prolong the life of the braid, you can moisten the back of the braid a couple of times a year.

Special consideration

Rattan is a natural material where the appearance can vary greatly. The color spectrum goes from light yellow to light brownish shades. Likewise, the surface gloss may fluctuate which is why some frames may appear shinier than others. The color variation is a characteristic of the natural materials and is not considered a defect/reason for complaint.

Rattan reed widths are never exactly the same so the number of windings can vary from frame to frame and be different at the end of each frame.

Do not place the rattan near heat sources or in direct sunlight.
