The good news is, as far as naturally sourced materials are concerned, rattan is one of the safest from an environmental standpoint. While the palm tree the material is derived from is geographically limited in location, rattan itself is easily renewable, and the impact its sourcing has in the environment can be considered negligible.
The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.

Natural Materials: Natural fibres have traditionally been some of the most popular and widespread among the different materials for outdoor furniture, and that is a trend which continues to this day. As popular as synthetic fibres have become in recent years, there is still a certain charm to natural materials which causes many home-owners to choose them over their man-made counterparts – even despite the significantly higher degree of care and maintenance they require.
So, is rattan furniture eco-friendly? In a nutshell, yes. Both the natural and synthetic variants of the material are sustainable from an environmental standpoint, and the lines below go into more detail about why.
