Rattan Core

Rattan Core is also called center-cane. (Scientifically it is the pith of the Calamus plant family)

Rattan core is mostly used in baskets and wicker furniture. They can be cut/produced from many different species of rattan, but only a handful is suitable for commercial application.

The main determining factor in rattan core is the choice of right material. Good rattan core should be pliable (flexible and strong) that would bend smoothly without a kink. Unlike wood, rattan should not crack, split, or snap when bent. It should have a firm smooth texture. Well-cut rattan core is uniform in size & shape along the full length of the core.
