    A once popular item in 70-90s era, rattan export industry started to slow down in mid 2000 where it got to the lowest point in 2008, partly due to Great Financial Crisis but also because of its outdated style. Recently, we see a more contemporary look on rattan products, which starts to boost its popularity again. More designers are attracted to work on this rattan material and create a new style which is modern and sleek compare to the old style with darker color. The shifting design from classic and old style to be more modern, light, and clean look, brings the products to a higher level.
