Rattan is a climbing palm (especially of the genera Calamus and Daemonorops) with very long tough stems. A part of the jointed stem of a rattan used especially for furniture, wickerwork, and walking sticks. It is durable, flexible and light weight that’s why you can find a lot of local crafts like these baskets and fishing baskets made of rattan.

These are the fishing baskets.

The smaller ones are for decoration… for example a hanging lamp shade.
