Wicker Resin: A robust material that offers many advantages:

The braided resin also called “poly rattan” or wicker resin is made from polyethylene or PVC, molded in the form of fiber and then dyed. The fibers, which give this rattan or wicker appearance, are then braided around a metal structure, often made of aluminum.

There are different types of braiding and different colors. The main quality of the resin is its resistance to weathering, UV rays, and strength. Despite the lightness of resin furniture, your garden furniture is not easily damaged and can withstand almost anything!

Lightness has a positive effect: your garden furniture is very modular, you can change its layout with only two arms! No need to be several to transport it, and this according to your desires.

Prices remain within everyone’s reach because we count “top-of-the-range” resin or “bottom-of-the-range” resin. The latter offers furniture where the difference is not very apparent, but it feels long term in terms of product quality. In fact, garden furniture made of synthetic resin is less good quality and preserves the original color for less time.

How to recognize good quality braiding?

You can evaluate the quality of a rattan wicker patio furniture yourself at the time of purchase: if you can pass your finger under the braiding, this means that the braiding is too soft and therefore not very resistant, the resin is liable to deform in the long term. It is important that the braiding is tight and tight.

First of all, check whether your product is guaranteed for a minimum of 12 months, as the braiding underneath may be of poor quality. Carefully read the specifications on the datasheet: if the product is hand-woven, strong and solid, and dyed in the mass (not just on the surface, which shows the raw color of the synthetic fiber in some places), the product is reliable.

Braids and colors in all their splendor!

There are several types of wicker patio furniture of with resin, and especially several types of braiding: round braiding or flat braiding. The main difference lies in the visual aspect, however, it can be said that round braiding is stronger than flat braiding. The fibers are actually thicker, which gives a better quality to the product. The rendering looks more natural and this rattan resin is less likely to move over time.

Wicker Patio Furniture Maintenance side:

Maintenance is still the advantage not to be overlooked compared to a teak salon. It is simple and requires no special product. A soft sponge, a little soap, and warm water are enough. You can also use a soft bristle brush to remove dust or other residues.

Above all, do not use a brush with hard bristles, or steel wool for example, as this could damage the wicker patio furniture by scratching it

Finally, never attempt to clean your braided resin furniture with a solvent, bleach or chlorinated product as this is the best way to damage the quality of the material and the color.

In winter, cover your furniture with a protective cover, it will be able to pass the bad season outside without problems. You just have to avoid handling it in cold weather because if the resin freezes, it may break and unfortunately, a braided resin piece of furniture is very difficult to repair.

Be careful with the covers: the fabric, on the other hand, can be damaged by the sun’s rays, it is preferable to store them when the living room is not in use or when you are not at home. This applies in particular to colored or dark fabrics…
