INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR BAMBOO AND RATTAN


Why rattan l.jpg
Why rattan?

  • Rattan grows up trees for support and helps save them from

    premature harvesting by providing additional benefits that

    outweigh those of early harvesting the companion tree.

  • Rattan can be planted in natural forests without disturbing

    the existing structure or balance of the forest and can

    increase its financial value.

  • Rattanpoles are light and extremely flexible and have a

    huge market in the furniture and handicraft industries. In

    order to guarantee future supplies, rattan plants must be

    properly managed and sustainably harvested.


Why make woven products from rattan l.jpg
Why make woven products from rattan?

  • Due to the unique structural propertiesof rattan wood, rattan poles can be split to yield splits, cores and narrow slivers, which are flexible longitudinal sections of wood much broader than they are wide. They may also be split further into coarse or fine threads. All are very verstile and can be used to produce a huge variety of products.

  • Woven rattan products have many close associations with different cultures and are readily accepted by consumers. In addition to handicrafts and articles of daily-use, many agricultural items are also woven from rattan.

  • The skills for weaving with rattan are often already existent within communities or individuals. The quality and intricacy of the product, and the price attainable for it, depends greatly on the skills of the weaver. This is a strong incentive for weavers to maintain and upgrade their skills.


Main development attributes of a woven rattan products unit l.jpg

Reduces dependence on timber resources and thereby increases environmental protection and conservation.

Permitsrehabilitation of degraded lands through increased areas of tree-rattan plantations.

Createsincome-generating opportunities for bamboo growers who will supply the unit, and employment for semi-skilled and skilled staff at the unit. Producing woven rattan products is labour intensive.

The work is gender sensitive

- women are employed in all

stages of producing woven products.

Main development attributes of a woven rattan products unit


Some salient facts l.jpg

The Community Crafts Association of the Philippines has been very successful at promoting community-based woven products manufacturing, including community marketing systems..

Product manufacture by contract or on a made-to-order basis assures a ready and secured market outlet.

Weaving can be done on a piecework basis by home-bound women and elderly or infirm folk, as well as at the unit itself and can thereby provide additional income opportunities during spare time.

High quality woven products are valuable export commodities in many producing countries.

Continued innovation and development of new products is necessary to promote and maintain market presence. Good access to market information is vital.
