What is “resin wicker”?

Wicker means woven, when someone asks ‘is it real wicker?’ they are likely referring to the woven natural rattan wicker from their grandmother’s front porch, but “real” wicker is anything woven.

Resin for our outdoor wicker is a synthetic material that combines natural fibers High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) resins that are more environmentally-friendly than traditional PVC, nylon, and latex materials. Resin wicker is built to last longer, too, and is even more durable than organic rattan wicker.

How durable is resin wicker furniture?

Due to its very nature, resin wicker requires very little maintenance. We have engineered out HDPE resin to withstand four times the industry standard for fading or structural failures making it best in class. Resin wicker is also very strong because the material has a very high tensile strength; it doesn’t fray the way rattan wicker does, but it is still very taut over an aluminum frame.

Can I leave my patio furniture out in the rain?

Yes! Because HDPE resin is mostly synthetic material, it is completely waterproof. Additionally, the skeleton of every piece of our furniture is made from lightweight and rust-resistant aluminum. Aluminum oxidizes in a manner different from steel; the oxidation will not drastically affect the appearance nor the integrity of the framework. While classic steel frames are very prone to rust, our aluminum frames can be exposed to the weather as much as you like and with just basic maintenance they will last a lifetime.
