Rattan is a more affordable building material compared to iron and teak. By nature, it is a very tough material. Only with intense heating can it be used as a material for creating furniture. It is flexible enough to take on any shape. Usually, rattan is used with iron, wood or plastic. These materials serve as the solid frame for the cane. The cane is bent over and around these frames, and when cooled, takes on the shape and form of the frame. As rattan is abundantly available, the cost of producing such furniture is low. Hence, it's easier for furniture retailers to make a good profit from such furniture.
Iron patio furniture used to be very popular because of its durability. Many traditional furniture pieces are made from iron and they last for decades with little or no maintenance. Very little needs to be done to the furniture. Only minimal dusting and cleaning is required. However, iron furniture is giving way to other materials due to cost issues and a faster pace of life.
Teak wood is the most durable, stable and beautiful wood used for patio furniture. Grade A teak means you will not find knotholes or cracks in the wood. Kiln-dried means your teak patio furniture is dry to the core, with a moisture content of 12% to 15%, which means it will not shrink, slip or move. Machine made means that you can rely on the quality and consistency of the furniture construction.
