Born from the very latest designs, our wicker range uses highly sophisticated weather-tested materials as the foundation for every product. We apply passion and skill in production - the kind that comes from ancient crafts and centuries old-skills handed down through generations. 

Caring for your wicker furniture

Resin wicker is the ideal material for both indoor and outdoor furniture. It is low maintenance, strong, natural-looking and extremely weather-resistant. Your furniture will look great and perform well in even the harshest of climates - heat, sun and freezing cold. However, if you follow these few simple precautions, you can extend that 'like new' feeling for years to come. 

  1. We recommend that you place your furniture away from trees or bushes that can drip sap or where birds roost.
  2. When not in use, remove cushions and store in a dry spot, or invest in quality furniture covers (which we do supply!)
  3. Protect cushions from contact with insect repellant, suntan lotion or oil. Whilst some products are totally harmless, other may cause damage or discolouration.
  4. Avoiding dragging or hitting the wicker against hard or rough surfaces. This could weaken the resin wicker, particularly on corners, and cause it to split. 


Very little maintenance is required to retain the beauty of your resin wicker. We do however recommend a periodic cleaning to remove the dirt, dust or oils that may collect over time, to keep your furniture looking new.

If you are using your furniture outdoors, the wicker may be washed with mild detergent and water if it becomes soiled, using a wet sponge, cloth or a soft plastic bristle brush. Wish and allow to dry thoroughly before use. 

To remove mildew, use a solution of warm water, mild laundry detergent and chlorine bleach (no more than 250ml of bleach to 12 litres of water). Do not use solvents, scouring agents, carbon tetrachloride, undiluted bleach, janitorial cleaners, or gasoline. If in doubt about using a detergent, chose an inconspicuous area and test the cleaner. 

If you are using your furniture indoors, a damp cloth with mild soap and water should be the only requirements for maintaining your wicker.

Regular use of a vinyl protectant spray will help prolong the life of the wicker.
