Background  /

Tradidional Rattan crafts in Taiwan

 

 

Taiwan, which is located in the subtropical area, has the reputation of “The Kingdom of Rattan ”for its abundance of rattan and its processing industry during 1970s-1980s.

 

Though the rattan industry has declined because of the extortionate cost of labor, the memory of rattan types of furniture has never gone out of our minds. We still can see the traditional rattan chair in our lives. The woven crafts of rattan and Taiwanese culture are inseparable.
