KNOW YOUR RATTAN.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
The production of rattan furniture generally has a lower carbon footprint compared to furniture made from non-renewable materials or materials requiring energy-intensive processes. The sustainable sourcing of rattan, its minimal processing requirements, and the use of traditional craftsmanship techniques contribute to reduced energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Rattan is considered a renewable and sustainable resource. It grows relatively quickly, with some species reaching maturity within five to seven years. Harvesting rattan involves selecting mature stems while allowing the palm tree to continue growing, ensuring the long-term sustainability of rattan production.
Rattan is biodegradable, meaning it can naturally break down and return to the environment without causing long-lasting pollution or waste. At the end of its life cycle, rattan furniture can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner or even composted, reducing the burden on landfills and contributing to a circular economy.
By using rattan as a material for furniture, the demand for traditional hardwoods is reduced, which helps alleviate deforestation pressures on natural forests. This contributes to the preservation of biodiversity, ecosystem stability, and the mitigation of climate change.
