What is Benchcraft Wicker
Wicker is a weaving process, not a material. One of the materials used in the weaving process today is called rattan core, which comes from the rattan interior. A machine cuts the inside of the rattan stem into pieces small enough in diameter for the weaving process. Due to the nature of this product, splits and discolorations in the rattan stems are to be expected. They even enhance the beauty and uniqueness of these fine
wicker bedroom furniture products.
How is the Furniture Constructed?
We import only the finest Malaysian Manua
rattan for our hand crafted rattan furniture line. The rattan is
then placed in a steam box which is necessary for bending the rattan
poles and making it more pliable. Wooden and metal templates are
constructed for producing specific shapes. When the rattan is
steaming hot, it is bent to fit into the templates, additional heat
is provided by torch to make every piece fit perfectly. Once in the
template we cool it off by pouring cold water over the rattan poles.
Once cooled, the rattan pole will stay in the templates shape. The
shaped poles are then assembled with straight poles that are
contoured to fit joints evenly. The joints where two pieces meet are
wrapped with peel or wicker strands giving it more elegance and
adding to the durability of the Benchcraft wicker furniture.
