You might have heard of wicker furniture – or you might even own one! If you don’t own one, then you might be wondering what it is and why it is so popular in the furniture industry.
A Brief Background
The term ‘wicker’ pertains to a finely woven material found mainly in outdoor furniture. The general category of wicker covers many natural fibers including reed, bamboo, cane, rattan, seagrass, and their synthetic versions. When it comes to outdoor furniture such as lounges and chairs, wicker is very popular.
The word ‘wicker’ also refers to woven furniture and in general, the act of weaving. Almost every wicker type can be painted, stained and left untreated. For synthetic wicker, they are manufactured in their final desired color from the start and this makes them more durable and long-lasting.
Here at Palm Casual, our wicker patio furniture is created from durable polyethylene strips woven and fitted across sturdy aluminum frames. Since polyethylene is a non-reactant material, it is considered to be the best choice in terms of fabrication of synthetic wicker.

It comes with a natural, organic quality that would complete other natural and eco-friendly décor. It also looks great with colored pillows – perfect for accenting any existing outdoor living space or sunroom décor!
In terms of MAINTENANCE…Another reason why wicker outdoor furniture is loved by many homeowners is because it is very easy to maintain. It can simply be wiped clean with a damp cloth, or you can easily wash it with a 50:50 water and bleach mixture. This makes it the perfect outdoor furniture for people with hectic schedules!
