Resin wicker is a synthetic material that combines natural fibers and PVE plastics that are more environmentally-friendly than traditional PVC, nylon, and latex materials. Resin wicker is built to last longer, too, and is even more durable than organic rattan wicker. Because it is a synthetic material made of thousands of individual fibers, it is not “dyed;” the coloration is implicit in the material itself. This means that even if your furniture gets scuffed and scraped, it won’t lose its color or its strength.
Due to its very nature, resin wicker requires very little maintenance. Since it is not superficially dyed, but rather the colors are a part of every individual fiber, resin wicker is totally immune to fading. Resin wicker is also very strong because the fiber mesh has a very high tensile strength; it doesn’t fray the way rattan wicker does, but it is still very taut over an aluminum frame.
Yes! Because PVE is mostly synthetic material, it is completely waterproof. Additionally, the skeleton of every piece of Forever Patio furniture is made from lightweight and rust-resistant aluminum. Aluminum can rust, but it oxidizes in a manner different from steel; the rust will not drastically affect the appearance nor the integrity of the framework. While classic steel frames are very prone to rust, our aluminum frames can be exposed to the weather as much as you like and with just basic maintenance they will last a lifetime.
No! The resin wicker fibers of our premium patio furniture are not dyed superficially like most outdoor sets. The color is infused in every individual fiber of the resin wicker weave. Because it is not “dyed” the resin material never fades. It will look just as rich and lovely as the day you bought it.
