How To Care For Your Rattan


Rattan is a leading interior trend and it's not going anywhere, anytime soon. It brings tone and texture into any home with its relaxed look providing the perfect balance to timber and stone surfaces. 

Handcrafted by skilled artisans, this style of furniture is comprised of one-of-a-kind pieces that fill your home with stories through its personal, bespoke designs and not to mention, great for the environment.  

It’s important to know how to properly care for your natural wicker, cane and rattan to ensure the longevity of your pieces.   

Protecting Your Rattan


  • Dust the surface weekly using a soft cotton cloth
  • Vacuum rattan with a brush attachment
  • Treat mildew or spillages immediately and dry the rattan extremely well to avoid mould
  • Oil the rattan fibres with boiled linseed oil to avoid splitting


  • Avoid using excessive water to clean rattan as it can distort the wicker and dry in an unnatural position
  • Don't place rattan outside or in direct sunlight as it can cause damage and discolouration
  • Never use polish or paint thinners
  • Avoid dragging your furniture when moving it, always lift

We recommend the Guardsman Cloth to help protect your rattan fibres and keep the dust at bay for your furniture.
