The highest quality rattan furniture
Not all rattan fibre (the weaving material) is created equal. There are two brands recognised as market leaders; Rehau ™ and Hularo™. Both are German. We exclusively use Rehau Stressflex, which is five times more durable than other conventional fibres.
Contrast this material to that used by 90% of other rattan furniture suppliers. They use Chinese fibre which is mostly PVC. A cheap product which has a normal life expectancy of 12 months. Our quality rattan furniture originated in Australasia and we quickly realised that only a fibre resistant to high U.V. would last. Regardless, German rattan fibre as a raw material costs more than any other fibre on the market, three times the cost of Chinese fibre.
Quality rattan garden furniture frames
A good frame makes or breaks the integrity of quality rattan furniture. All rattan furniture uses alloy frames due to its relative weight and strength properties. However, as much of the frame is hidden the customer may wrongly assume all suppliers use the same specification. Our industry loves to roll out the quote ‘alloy with powder coating frame’ and customers often think it’s all the same. It most certainly is not. We feel the best gauge of alloy is 1.6-1.8mm round and square bar which is the spec used in high quality branded wicker rattan furniture. A lower quality product will use 1.2mm (because it’s the bare minimum). You will notice our furniture weighs a bit more like for like due to this difference in quality.
We have gone one step further and love to show off our frames and our manufacturing excellence.
What you are looking at is an over engineered welded and pointed frame, the likes of which you will not see anywhere else in our industry. Look at the bracing. The construction screams quality. What lurks under the fibre of other garden furniture?
The very best fixtures and fittings
Where exposed metals are incorporated in our designs we only use Stainless Steel, 316 marine grade. This is rare in the market place. In fact we are aware of only one other supplier out of the 100’s who operate in the UK alone who use marine grade. The vast majority of suppliers use aluminum. The reason we don't use alloy is because it corrodes. Please note an iola modular foot weighs in at an impressive 450 grams. Where fixings, gliders and plastic parts are used to protect floors from exposed feet we specify Moss products in Oxford, England. There are no corners cut at iola.
