Synthetic relates to an artificial material used in many industries. Regarding the furniture industry, this means the man-made fiber for producing outdoor home furnishings and decorations. The synthetic fibers are waterproof and stain resistant that makes them perfect for using outside. It’s hard to be broken, faded and doesn’t attract insects. Also, the fiber can be dyed into different colors rather than just the natural colors of rattan. The most common type of artificial rattan is polyethylene. Many furniture factories weave their outdoor products with that rattan to maximize its abilities to withstand weather and furniture-harming insects. Different styles of fiber are introduced regularly for any creative mindsets and furnishing ideas.
