Abaca – Alfresco & Indoor Furniture Material


Abaca is harvested from Hemp palms (Banana family) and twisted and rolled into a strong rope. The Abaca rope is then woven over and around solid wood frames to create our furniture pieces.

Abaca furniture is suitable for indoor areas and covered alfresco areas but should not be placed outside in direct sunlight.

Kubu – Alfresco & Indoor Furniture Material


Kubu, from the rattan family, is a very fast growing hard vine. 10 metre lengths of Kubu are woven over and around solid wood frames to create our furniture pieces.

Kubu furniture is suitable for indoor areas and covered alfresco areas. If placed permanently outside in direct sunlight it will gradually fade to a lighter colour.

Water Hyacinth – Alfresco & Indoor Furniture Material


Water Hyacinth is harvested from waterways and ponds. Water Hyacinth is a fast growing plant that clogs waterways and has to be constantly cleared to allow access to the waterways and ponds.
The Water Hyacinth reeds are plaited into long lengths of rope, then woven over and around solid wood frames to create our furniture pieces.

Water Hyacinth furniture is suitable for indoor areas and covered alfresco areas but should not be placed outside in direct sunlight.

UV ‘All Weather Resin Wicker’ – Outdoor Furniture


The material is a synthetic polymer resin (plastic) with an UV inhibitor that protects the resin wicker from breaking down in sunlight. The manufacturers of the resin wicker give us a 3 year sunlight guarantee that the material will not breakdown in this time.
Other benefits are high tensile strength, environmentally friendly, as the product is fully recyclable, chemical resistant (pool chemicals) weatherproof, and is anti colour fading. The UV resin wicker is woven over anodized aluminium frames.

The UV resin wicker used is vastly superior to the non-UV and brittle Chinese Plastic wicker furniture.

 

All weather UV wicker fibre
Made for outdoor use. The UV inhibitor is baked into the wicker fibre during the manufacturing process. This allows us to provide a Warrant for the UV wicker fibre of 3 years, free from peeling, cracking or fading.

Cleaning – remove cushions and clean with mild detergent and water.

Sunproof fabrics – Outdoor fabric and Outdoor cushions.


Sunproof fabrics are UV resistant, water resistant, chlorine resistant and are specifically designed and made for outdoor use.

The fabric has a 2 year Warranty for colour fastness and water repellency. Do not allow water to pool on the cushions, as evaporation will leave watermarks.
To prolong the life of the fabric cushions, we recommend storage in dry covered conditions when not in use (such as the winter months).

Cleaning – Dust regularly. Cushion covers to be removed for cleaning.
