One of the world's oldest furniture varieties, which was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century by European merchant ships. The baskets of wicked straw found in Egypt date back to 2000 BC.

The “Baxiang” of the South China Sea in Guangdong Province is the birthplace of the domestic rattan industry. It has been more than 150 years since it was made into rattan products. Before the founding of the People's Republic of China, almost every family made rattan, and there were vines everywhere.

Among them, Shabei Village began to engage in the weaving industry in the last years of the Ming Dynasty. Later, some people returned to Baiteng from Hainan Island, and the villagers began to work as a white rattan handicraft. After the Opium War, the sea ban was first opened, Guangzhou was traded abroad, and the vines entered. At that time, the Indonesians only knew how to use the rattan woven baskets to load the goods. Deng Qianji of the Houkou Village bought the baskets in large quantities and opened them for weaving small vines and rattan pots. The wind of weaving vines gradually spread in Patano, and developed rattan seats, rattan pots, rattan chairs and even rattan furniture. The ingenious Huang Qiren pioneered the first of the cane furniture.

With a pair of dexterous hands, weaved a strip of rattan into a stylish and elegant rattan furniture, which has since become the skill of the older generation of Huangqi people in the South China Sea. A large number of rattan handicraft workshops have become a landscape of the Yellow Sea in the South China Sea.

Workers on every workshop line say that vines are eaten by hand. They wore gloves and skillfully embed the roots of the cane. After a while, the rooted canes were arranged in parallel, and the excess rattan was cut off with pliers. When they work, they rarely talk and focus on repeated mechanical movements.

From a raw vine, scraping vine festival, chlorine washing, sulphur smog, vine peeling, playing rattan core... to make a single sitting wicker chair, at least more than 40 processes, in addition to separating the rattan core The cane skin can be semi-mechanized, and the rest of the process can only be done by hand.

The largest Nanhai rattan factory in the country has been exploring the mechanization of manual replacement since the day of its establishment, but it is still impossible to replace the manual until 50 years later.

With its cool, comfortable, durable and beautiful features, rattan furniture has been loved by the people in the Pearl River Delta for decades. In the past, almost every household had one or two cane chairs, and it was used for decades. The seats often sleep for three generations.

Everyone knows that mats are most common in the summer. In summer, a mat is placed on the bed, which is cool and comfortable. Why do the rattan seats in the old Yan family come in handy all year round?
