Rattan Coat Hanger

How cool is this rattan coat hanger! Looks like we are reinventing rattan. I think I've been taking rattan for granted because I grew up with so much of it, but no longer! For those that are interested, Rattan, a.k.a Berchemia Scandens, is a rope-like climbing plant that can grow to be up to 600 feet long! Its outer skins are strong and removed and woven. Like many over-harvested trees, it's not abundant as it used to be, so cherish it! Find it here.
