The difference between the two materials lies in their physical and mechanical properties and the choice between one model or the other generally depends on the final product to be obtained. It is worth mentioning that the use of synthetic fibre for the manufacture of rattan mesh has become popular because it is a material that not only imitates the physical appearance of natural rattan but also presents itself as a substitute that is more resistant, durable, versatile and cheaper than natural rattan.

  • According to the weaving method

  • Suppliers and request for samples

After a selective search on different platforms, it is possible to find dozens of suppliers of this product so after understanding the above factors the next step is to find a supplier capable of meeting your needs. Many buyers usually wish to receive samples of the product before considering placing an order and this is an option offered by several manufacturers. Although samples are free of charge, it is not surprising that the supplier will ask you to pay for shipping costs so the only information you will need to provide to the supplier will be: your full address and the postcode, name and contact details of the person who will receive the package.


This is a very important factor that many people are unaware of and that can sometimes generate many complications if it is not managed in the best way. It is very important to take this information into account when importing rattan netting, otherwise it can lead to financial losses.

A fumigation certificate, often referred to as a pest control certificate, is a document used to ensure that all packaging materials have been fumigated. Materials requiring sterilisation or fumigation prior to international shipment are usually items whose raw material is made of natural raw material, in this case natural rattan netting, whereby synthetic rattan products are exempted.

The fumigation certificate is mandatory when shipping international or maritime goods. Failure to comply with these measures runs the risk of your cargo not being shipped, cleared or quarantined upon arrival at other ports.

It is worth mentioning that the requirement for this certificate may vary according to the country of origin and the ultimate destination of the cargo, e.g. according to statements from various cleintes, it is not necessary to have this certificate for the import of natural rattan netting in Colombia, Chile, Panama etc. But it is necessary to have this certificate in countries such as Australia, USA, Canada, etc.

The cost of such a certificate is around 100 dollars, the payment is made according to the amount of rolls you wish to import. Persons wishing to import synthetic rattan netting do not have to pay this fee.

The details required on a fumigation certificate are information on the purpose of the fumigation treatment and a list of the fumigants used. In addition, the amount of time these fumigants were used and the temperature range during the fumigation must be detailed.
