The History Behind Cane Furniture
Cane is a term which refers to the skin of the rattan stalk, most commonly found in Indonesia. From a sustainable standpoint, it is a material which can be harvested with little harm to the surrounding trees upon which it climbs (as a vine-like plant). Of its 2-5cm diameter the exterior bark/ skin is separated from the stalk. This is what is processed to make the cane strands commonly weaved together for furnishings like the above round-up.
