Compared to plastic, sure, price of rattan end product is expensive. Just for an example:

- small plastic baskets cost less than US$1, whereas rattan material could reach more than US$ 15.

Some of the reasons why rattan end products expensive:

- strong
- durable
- workmanship standard
- quality

If we look after and avoid from outdoor elements (such as rain or wet), rattan furniture may last from 5 years to 10 years.

Do you have rattan end products at your home?

  1. ...I love baskets. They are made around the world and differ by the materials available in each area. There is something genuine about an item made by hand.

  7. Hello
    I like the rattan baskets and furniture. The first two baskets are really pretty. I tried to post a comment on the Koi fish post and it will not let me comment. I wanted to say thanks for linking up and sharing your post. Have a great day and a happy new week!

    1. in this case, "durable" means easy to "bend," leaks and can't be used more than 2-3 years for plastic basket less than US$1....

  11. Tanza, My wife has many baskets...more than we need for sure. Some are true works of art, including a couple of American Indian baskets. I don't think any are made with Asian rattan...but she does have one or two made from North American vines. Natural materials for baskets and furniture is so much preferable as it will eventually return to the soil. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
