Rattan is derived from a Malay word “rotan” which is a close relative of the palm tree, a type of vine that grows in forests of Southeast Asia, and also known as malacca or manila because majority of rattan products are exported from these countries. Rattan usually grows in the shape likened to a pole, with one to three inches diameter, and it is considered a very strong material, possessing the ability to grow up to a hundred feet. The different types of rattan furniture are rattan garden tables, rattan sofas and daybeds, rattan dining chairs, rattan dining sets, rattan sofa sets, rattan corner sofa sets, rattan deep seat and lounge chairs, and rattan sun loungers.

The outside skin or the peel of a rattan pole is used in binding the furniture joints together, while its solid core and vertical grains are harvested, cut into small sections and steamed, thus giving varying shapes for making different types of furniture. Rattan is often used in making wicker design furniture pieces wherein wicker is an ancient handcrafting technique used in making items like furniture out of natural materials, wherein these are wet for them to be easily woven.
