What a versatile, flexible, durable, beautiful natural fiber is rattan! (Calamus spp., the Rattan Palm) Rattan core is also called center-cane or rattan reed. It comes in several cross-section shapes, such as half-round, flat or oval. The one for sale here is “round”. Rattan is so strong, it can be twisted into ropes, or stretched over entire rivers, as the main supports of indigenous suspension bridges.
It can be plaited, or woven into furniture, basketry etc. For ease of use, soak it in cold water first, about 5 to 10 minutes.
When it’s peeled, it’s divided into the peel and the core. The skin peel is used for weaving of chair seats and bags.
Package contents: 500g or either 3mm or 4mm rattan core
NOTE: Because it grows naturally, the length of each piece is different. It’s usually about 1 to 3 meters. The products will be shipped randomly, so there’s no guarantee of a specific length.
