Rattan is the outer layer of several species of slender, vine-like palm plant. Among rattan’s many uses, building furniture has always been its strongest suit. Building rattan furniture is the source of livelihood of many people in rural areas in Asian countries, such as Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Bangladesh.
