Wicker is a plastic weave. For the Exotan wicker products, a durable plastic wire with polyethylene as a basis is used. The wire is woven by hand which makes it extra sturdy. It is lightweight, UV-resistant and low-maintenance. The material can withstand various types of weather. You can leave your garden furniture outdoors for the entire the garden furniture season. For optimal enjoyment and in order to extend the lifespan, we recommend that you regularly maintain this material with the Exotan Care Wicker cleaner (ECP500). After cleaning, we recommend protecting it with the Exotan Care Wicker protector (ECP700). This way, your garden furniture will remain in top condition for years to come.
