Wondering what wicker is, I know most of you must be familiar with it, it’s the same old thing that a bamboo basket is, it’s just that wicker involves many more plant stalk shavings; from branches, stems,etc. Nowadays these are also made fully artificial with plastic and other synthetic materials; and also by mixing some artificial material and natural; plant stalks too.

We Indians are very well aware of bamboo basket weaving, the similar weaving is used to contruct these furniture pieces, these are light in weight yet very strong due to the strong weav. So now let’s see how are traditional art form can be used in the making of stylish and classy furniture.

Examples:

  • Sofa sets.

Rocking chair was an attraction to me as a child, I would always love to play around it, I know we all did. This being light weight is a safe option as children love playing on them and heavy furniture can hurt badly if there is any accident during the fun time.

  •  Swings.
