From the Manufacturer
Reed comes from the core of rattan, a vine-like palm that grows on the Malaysian Peninsula and in Indonesia. Processed in China, the core is machine cut into flat, flat-oval, oval-oval, half-round, and round shapes. Reed can be carved, sanded, and stained like any wood product. We always carry the best materials available to us. However, due to varying climatic conditions, minerals in the ground, heavy demand, and primitive cutting conditions, the quality available changes from time to time. Please keep in mind that although commercially available, reed is still a natural product.
Round Reed is used in basketweaving as both spokes and weavers. Larger sizes may also be used as handles. Wicker furniture is sometimes made of various sizes of round reed. The diameter of a size of reed will vary from batch to batch.
