On the other hand, rattan or rattan is a native vine plant of the tropical regions such as Africa, Asia and Australasia that usually reaches a great length. It has stems that are finer but at the same time very hard, and the elaboration of the products must be done while the rattan is still wet since it is then much more flexible and simple to mold.

Both materials are usually knotted and braided to form the pieces, although wicker furniture is somewhat more flexible and lighter than rattan furniture, as well as being able to be painted more easily. On the contrary, the rattan is more resistant and supports the adverse conditions better. It is for this reason that many experts choose to elaborate garden furniture from a mixture of these two materials.
