Protect Wicker Furniture

Keeping wicker furniture outside leaves it exposed to full sun and water which degrades the weave.

Protective coatings and natural oils become dried out, reducing the wicker’s resistance to the elements.

Adding a protective coat of timber varnish is a simple way to extend the life of wicker furniture. It also adds warmth to the fibres, giving a fresh appearance that takes only a few minutes to achieve.

TIP First wash the wicker in warm, soapy water and leave in the sun to dry.
