Rattan is a naturally renewable palm tree that grows in forests in Africa and Asia. Rattan grows rapidly or over two (2) centimetres per day. Rattan can harvested within two years, whereas some hardwoods take up to 20-30 years. This makes rattan an absolutely sustainable and environmentally friendly product.
