Rattan is considered to be one of the strongest woods available, since its grain grows vertically instead of forming the concentric rings of most other hardwoods. The straight wood is usually steamed and then bent into the desired shape through the use of specialized shapers. Once dried, it will retain its shape and strength forever. Rattan comes from a vine like palm grown under license in the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. The Grey colour is achieved by dipping the rattan in a specific liquid, which soaks into the rattan giving the varied shading, which makes their colouring interesting.Grey Rattan is not a solid colour but a mixture of muted shades of brown and grey.
