Kauai Rattan Frame (Lighter Color)
You will find our Rattan Frames available for each piece of art and map, in our standard sizes of 8×10, 12×16 and 16×20.
Our Frames are manufactured exclusively by a small family owned furniture manufacturing facility in Cebu, The Philippines. Rattan is a sustainable product that supports thousands of families throughout the rainforest regions of South East Asia. The plant can meander through the jungle for over a quarter of a mile and its trunk spans between a diameter of 2 1/2 inches down to the thickness of a human hair.
The collection process is performed by hand with a simple machete. The rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Fortunately, it quickly regenerates and due to this method, protects the forest. Due to its natural pliability, exotic appeal and lightweight qualities, rattan is a favored choice for furniture makers. Our hand-made rattan frames are an all-natural, non mass-produced product. Therefore, no two frames are exactly alike. The outcome is a superior quality frame, designed for art aficionados with discriminating taste.
