This remarkable material is Polyethylene-based, extruded and through-dyed (as opposed to top-dyed, which is toxic). The synthetic fibers are molded into strips and hand-woven onto our aluminum frames. Unlike PVC, our wicker is UV stabilized, weather resistant, soft to touch, highly supple and toxin-free. It is highly resistant to salt water + chlorine, lotions, food + drink stains. Our wicker is tear resistant, environmentally friendly, recyclable, pest protected, and immune to rotting. It is not heavy to handle.
We use only Viro® www.virofiber.com fibers. We use aluminum frames for longevity and stability outdoors. Our furniture is all hand-woven to the highest manufacturing standards in Indonesia.
Maintenance is minimal. If needed, use a non-foaming cleanser with water and a low setting pressure hose.
At Outdoor Collections, all cushions are FREE on Deep Seating sets as shown. We use only Sunbrella® fabric and dacron wrapped Quick Dry® foam. We employ only reputable upholstery companies to produce our cushions.
Depending on the amount of use, a woven chair will generally perform very well over time (similar wear pattern to indoor, upholstered furniture).
Woven furniture can be left outside all year round and is able to easily withstand temperatures from -20° to 120°. When very cold, the weave will become stiffer than normal and when very hot, the weave will become more elastic. However, it will always revert to its normal elasticity once ambient temperatures stabilize.
