Kooboo Gray Rattan & Basketry

Kooboo gray is one of the materials in manufacturing rattan and wicker furniture. It has a unique characteristic that makes it different with other rattans. It is its gray color which is obtained from very natural processes.



The process begins from separating kooboo soft, which is the earlier form of kooboo gray, from jawit, a kind of rattan which is very similar to kooboo gray, but has lower quality. After that, kooboo soft will be soaked in the mud for several weeks to get the gray color on the surface. There are no chemical materials added in this process. But, to make this process faster, we need to put some kinds of leaves in the mud. That is all. After several weeks, we need to take it out from the mud. When this process is done, the color of kooboo soft is not changing. It is as same as the first time we put it in the mud. The only different is in the matter of smell. The smell of soaked kooboo soft is very unpleasant. You will not like it. Therefore, to eliminate that unpleasant smell, we need to enter the soaked kooboo soft to the last process.

The last process is the drying process. We need to dry the soaked kooboo soft under the sun. And just like the second process, there are no chemical materials added in this process. All we need to do is controlling this process. The gray color will appear itself. It is very beautiful, very unique, and very natural. That soaked kooboo soft which has been dried completely under the sun is named kooboo gray.

Until here, it is not ready yet to be used as material in manufacturing rattan and wicker furniture. We need to clean it first from the rest of the mud before use it. After that, it is ready to be used as material in manufacturing rattan and wicker furniture. Kooboo gray is always used as weaving material in manufacturing rattan and wicker furniture. The frame of kooboo gray furniture can be made from rattan pole, teak wood, mahogany wood, or other wooden materials. But, manufacturers of kooboo gray furniture usually use rattan pole as the material in making frame for kooboo gray furniture. It is because the combination of rattan pole and kooboo gray makes this furniture very beautiful and very natural. Also, rattan is not tree. Because of this, you can feel free to sit on a kooboo gray chair.

And, unlike the other kinds of furniture that need to be polished by melamine or other chemical materials as the finishing process in manufacturing furniture, this furniture do not need to be polished. Indeed, polishing this furniture by using melamine or other chemical materials can reduce its beauty. Therefore, most of this furniture buyers do not like to polish it. They know what they buy.

Now, we know that there are no chemical materials added at all in manufacturing this furniture. Using this furniture can enrich the beauty of your home. Using this furniture also can help us save our climate.
