Care & Maintenance
Rattan is believed to be the oldest natural fiber known to man. 80% of the world’s rattan resources grow in Indonesia, where GUBI’s rattan furniture is made. By producing so close to the material’s source, GUBI is able to utilize local craftsmanship and work with traditional artisans with generations of experience in processing and weaving rattan.
NATURAL SKIN-ON RATTAN
Treated with a water-based lacquer, GUBI’s rattan products are made by hand using all-natural skin-on rattans of the Manao and Tohiti species – these varieties have the highest density, which makes them exceptionally strong, and means they can accept screws without risk of damaging the stem or the screw falling out.
SEMI POLISHED RATTAN
The skin is removed from the rattan cane and sanded down to a beautiful smooth surface, which is polished in its natural golden state, and shiny lacquer applied on top.
French cane is a durable weaved material made from rattan vines.
