"Wicker" is any type of product that is made in a specific way, in particular in a woven design. The term itself is believed to have originated from Sweden with the word "Wika" translating to the term “to blend” and the term “vikker” translating to the word “willow”.

The most successful material that is used to make wicker baskets is the vine off the rattan tree. The Rattan tree can only be found in the rain forests of Southeast and East Asia, Africa, and South and Central America.  The best rattan vine used for wicker products is the Honey rattan, found in the Southeast Asia region. The material itself has many properties that make it ideal for wicker products. It can be cut to various lengths and shapes, and it can be weaved and twisted into shape without snapping or splintering like normal wood.
