It is an easy wood to work, despite its considerable hardness, which makes Iroko a timber destined to last over time. Iroko has good thermal stability for this reason it is an excellent outdoor wood in damp environments.

    Polypeel

    Is a mass dyed synthetic fibers: this means that the color is not only on the surface and so the color doesn’t fade away. It is derived from polyethylene through an extrusion process and have high performance characteristics such as resistance to UV rays and bad weather and durability in time. It is recyclable, they don’t absorb sunscreens or suntan oils, it is washable with water and neutral/non abrasive soap and resistant to fungal growth, mould and insects.

    Bending

    Rattan is the general term to define this material while “giunco” is the italian translation. There are over 100 varietes of rattan, but the most used are: Manila, Manau, Malacca, Palasan. The rattan cane is manually heated over an open flame and curved. The use of the flame allows a total freedom in terms of shapes and as a consequence in the design of the furniture.

    Weaving

    The rattan core threads, which are then hand woven, come from the the inner part of the cane, they are obtained in different sizes by the use of a special machine. To be woven the rattan core threads must first be soaked in water, so that they can become flexible enough to be hand woven. The natural color of the rattan cane core is very pale, and the lightness of this color is guarantee of its quality: the more pale it is the higher the quality. As time goes by and depending on the amount of light to which it is exposed the natural rattan core and core threads will turn into a warm honey colour which as well is a sign of a high quality material.

    Colouring

    Once the piece of furniture is completed it can either be left raw or undergo the staining or lacquering phase. Anilin stains are water based finisheswhich are completely natural and while colouring the material they are very light and allow to still see the vaining of the material. Alternatively a lacquer finish is another option.

    Bindings

    Canes are assembled with screws and nails in order to make the piece of furniture stable and resistant. The bindings have the double function of reinforcing and covering the head of the nails. Occasionally the bindings can be also a decoration of the furniture itself. The materials used for this purpose are leather, flat-oval rattan core threads and flat-oval rattan skin threads.
