Resin wicker isn't natural. It's made from polyethylene resin which is spun into strands and made into furniture like rattan, or bamboo is weaved. The most durable furniture made from resin wicker is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) due to its toughness and resistance to fading under the sun.

Most of the time outdoor patio furniture is constructed from synthetic resins. The resin wicker is designed to look just like natural wicker. By the way, Fun fact! Wicker comes in the Scandinavian word "wika," which refers to "to bend."
Then, why should we pick Resin Wicker?
First, as we mentioned before, durability matters. Based on the test, high-quality resin wicker furniture is expected to last 10-15 years. Since resin wicker does not biodegrade rapidly, it's more durable than natural materials such as bamboo and is more resistant to sun and rain harm. It's better suited to be used outdoors and requires minimal maintenance apart from cleaning with dishwashing or window cleaner liquid after it has become dirty. HDPE wicker is water-resistant that is resistant to mold and mildew. It doesn't fade or stain and since the color is built into the fabric, there's none of the paint flakings.
Another benefit is that it is easy to maintain and fix. The individual strands of synthetic wicker furniture for outdoor use rarely break in normal usage; however, repairs are simple to fix if they do. Repair kits for plastic rattan with various colors to match almost all furniture brands are readily available and generally will cost you a little money. Repairs involve weaving a new plastic strand over the damaged one and then attaching it using epoxy.
