Wicker furniture is a furniture that is made from a Wickering process. Wicker is the process of weaving natural materials like willow, rattan, cane, bamboo into various patterns, in this case into a furniture. Wicker furniture is made from weaving interlaced slender branches around a frame and molding it into desired shapes such as tables, chairs, bed or sofas. Wicker furniture is usually made by hand to get a better and accurate results. Mostly they are made by countries in Southeast Asia, naming Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, and others. The smooth surface and clean lines in wicker furnitures were considered popular in the Victorian era.

Wicker furniture can be classified into two categories: loom woven and synthetic wicker furniture. Loom woven wicker pieces use natural materials such as rattan, cane or bamboo. These materials are dipped in resin emulsions to form a moisture resistant shield. On the other hand, synthetic wicker furniture are wicker pieces made from hand-woven polyethylene, fiber glass or resin, a material that resembles natural wicker and is washable, waterproof, colorfast, and ultraviolet and frost-resistant. Synthetic woven furniture usually has aluminum frames for increased strength and durability. It often contains UV inhibitors that repel the damaging effects of the sun, harsh weather and temperature changes. Some variety of wicker furniture is dipped in a special coating to resist fading and reduce flaking and cracking.

Wicker furniture can consist of various styles of surfaces. For example, you can have it made in natural, stained or painted surface. Each of them offers different level of comfort, durability, versatility and livability. Because of its natural finish and color, it mixes well with upholstered pieces. Wicker furniture is very much suitable for garden furniture or patio furniture because of the fact that its very lightweight and can be easily moved from place to place.

Although wicker furniture isnt too hard to maintain, because it doesnt attract much dust, it still needs a form of maintenance once in a while for long lasting life span and usage. You should regularly vacuum or dust it on fixed period of time, like maybe once a month. That way your furniture will be looking as good as new everyday. Use furniture polish when necessary. A layer of lacquer should be applied for restoring its finish.
