Well frankly, when we started in the industry, woven synthetic rattan was the new outdoor material. We fell in love with it.
Over the years we have experimented with stainless steel, mesh and teak materials.
Stainless steel is not stainless. It will ‘tea stain’ and rust if not regularly maintained. Mesh is not very robust and after some time is prone to mould. Difficult to replace mesh outside a factory environment.
Teak, if not treated with a marine varnish will ‘patina’ – go greyish and not look very premium.
They all don’t add up to a great performance. Not good for clients. Not good for us.
So we leave it to others to make products from these materials.
And we focus on making high quality woven products with powder coated aluminium frames and high quality synthetic rattan – lovingly handcrafted in our Cebu factory by the world’s best woven craftsmen.
Not only does synthetic rattan last with its robust physical properties and low maintenance, it comes in a wide choice of colours and profiles allowing greater design freedom.
We also believe that well made high quality woven furniture looks beautiful.
After 10 years in the industry, common sense has taught us woven furniture is enduring above all other materials.
Makes sense for our clients. Makes sense for us.
Makes sense for Mother Earth too. Important.
