Himalayan Rattan

  • The Himalaya rattan originated in northeast India in the Himalaya Mountains.This plant from the Plectocomia genus, is a high-climbing palm that can reach 80 feet. It is extremely weather resistant and can withstand frigid temperatures and even snow. Himalayan rattan is one of the most ornamental of the rattan palms, but it is seldom used for furniture because of its soft pith. Himalayan "singing bowls" use rattan wands of different densities to bring out different tones and sounds.

Manau

  • Manau is considered one of the most desired types of rattan. It is from the Calamus genus, the most popular genus used for commercial production. Manau is found in Africa, India, Sri Lanka, China, Malaysia and eastern Australia. It is primarily used furniture and handicrafts. It is also an ancient material used for weapons, especially in the martial arts of hand-to-hand combat. Long combat sticks, called bastons, are often made from Manau.
