Rattanhaus was established in 2013 and it produces locally manufactured Rattan furniture of the highest quality and workmanship. Rattanhaus supplies outdoor furniture for residential use, restaurants, hotels, hospitality industry and many more.
Rattanhaus offers their customers a variety of colours and weaving styles, which until now were only available when imported.
With over 25 years’ experience in manufacturing and producing quality products to accommodate the African climate, together with experience in retail and providing service of excellence to customers.
Around 90 % of Rattan (synthetic wicker) outdoor furniture currently available in South Africa is imported and most often lacks quality workmanship together with the use of inferior raw materials. Notwithstanding the above, one of the biggest problems our country is faced with is the negative effect imports have on our economy. Foreign imports not only cause our local businesses to close down but creates huge unemployment problems.
We saw the quality of the work that was coming into the country and there was no backup in terms of repair work— Inka Fogarty, Rattanhaus
