Almost every website selling rattan garden furniture claims to offer the best. So when we say we do, we know you’ve heard it all before. The difference is that to us, quality is not a word to be used frivolously. All of our contemporary rattan garden furniture is made from materials recognised as the very best in their field…
As with many industries, the Germans are well ahead of the rest when it comes to rattan furniture materials. There are two brands of rattan fibre producers considered to materially exceed the performance of all others. Both are German (Rehau™ and Hularo™). Whilst the use of a German fibre in isolation does not define a premium product, it’s absence certainly indicates an inferior one.
We also believe all weather contemporary rattan garden furniture should utilise a marine foam, which reticulates the water through the cushion rather than trying to create a barrier to it, which is an impossible task due to seam lines created in the sewing process. The most recognised all weather performance fabric is Sunbrella™ from the United States. We also use Italian marine fabrics for many of our contemporary rattan garden furniture products, to accent our scatter cushions and ottomans.
At iola, we encourage our customers to do plenty of research. When you do you will find a few vendors of rattan garden furniture who use some of these materials due to their innate quality. However, we go a step further. We are one of two companies globally who specify 316 marine grade stainless steel on their exposed furniture feet. Our rattan furniture gliders and other parts are from Moss in the UK. Our frames are expertly engineered using greater gauge (1.8mm) alloy with additional bracing and indoor sofa elastic for added comfort.

It may sound like marketing hype when we say we sell the best quality contemporary rattan furniture in Europe. But we can support this claim. There are perhaps 4 or 5 premium brands of contemporary rattan garden furniture on the market. There is only one other which uses the best materials to the extent we do. The others use some of the same materials; however, when it comes to marine stainless steel, reticulated foam or Cebu weavers they simply can’t compete.
It is always a quandary for us to articulate how we stack up against true competing brands without coming across as peddling the Emperor’s new clothes. What we can say categorically is that there is no other contemporary rattan garden furniture on the market anywhere in the world which uses more skilled weavers, higher quality materials or incorporates better design. Those who try to match us on quality create products which retail at a price two or three times higher than our
We are so confident in the quality of our contemporary rattan garden furniture that we have provided a number of images detailing frame construction, weaving detail and various other factory processes. Please see our
