Wicker is a hard woven fibre that is turned into a rigid, yet compliant material. It is both lightweight and sturdy, therefore it is a much-loved material in the present furniture industry. The qualities of wicker have led it to be a forerunner in conservatory, garden and patio furniture. Thus, it has been documented in the construction of furniture as far back as ancient Eqypt. Proving yet once again that a good thing will withstand the test of time.
