Quality all-weather wicker furniture is impervious to the forces of both Mother Nature and your day to day use. It will not fade in the sun, it will not become brittle and crack in the cold, it will not blemish when splashed with red wine, and it will not rust– even when left on a beach! Furthermore it can do all this without maintenance! But how?

Synthetic Wicker Fibers

Unlike traditional wicker furniture which is woven from abaca (palm) strands, modern outdoor wicker furniture is woven from new weather resistant synthetics that are far more durable than abaca. However it is very important to know what type of synthetic is used to make your furniture, as not all synthetics perform alike, and some are also extremely toxic. Please do not purchase any outdoor furniture made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Not only is PVC a less durable choice, but it emits toxic compounds during production and decomposition that are very harmful to the environment. Instead, the best choice is to purchase all-weather wicker furniture that is made from polyethylene (PE).

Be Green, Choose Polyethylene (PE)

As long as you know that the outdoor wicker furniture set that you are interested in is made from Polyethylene, then you do not have to purchase a brand name synthetic wicker fiber. However, like most industries, many furniture manufacturers and retailers will tell you anything in order to make a sale. We guarantee that you are purchasing top quality furniture that does not destroy the planet.

Goodbye Sun Bleached Patio Furniture!

Quality synthetic wicker strands have UV proofing additives that can resist fading for decades. When combined with quality outdoor fabrics such as the ones that MH2G uses, synthetic wicker furniture will keep its color far longer than traditional outdoor furniture. It is truly amazing!

100% Prime Aluminum Frames

Avoid steel! Though steel has its place, it should not be on your porch, patio, balcony, or garden. When exposed to the elements steel will rust. Even if powder coated, steel will rust because the powder coating will inevitably become scratched with use and expose the steel. Not only is rust ugly, but as steel rusts it expands and weakens. Due to this, we use aluminum to make our line of resin wicker patio furniture instead.

Our competitors say that Aluminum does not rust, which is actually half-true. Aluminum will oxidize when exposed to the elements but you cannot see it like you can on steel or iron. Aluminum "rust" is the same color as regular aluminum so it will stay beautiful for decades. Furthermore, it does not expand and weaken like steel so you will never be faced with flimsy patio furniture again! Because of its non-corrosive properties, aluminum is also used to make important components in the automotive industry as well as in spacecrafts and rockets. For long lasting outdoor furniture, buy aluminum!
