Kubu Sun Lounger with cushions:
There are actually two different types of wicker furniture; cane and synthetic. Organic cane is a natural product and is simply not durable in the changing climate of Australia. Furniture made from cane is susceptible to the changing moisture in the air and when exposed to dry weather it becomes brittle and loses shape.
Our Kubu furniture made using an aluminium frame, making them extremely strong but light to move around. Many wicker products are built with a 4mm thick aluminium frame, but our Kubu range is made with an 8mm thick frame.
Our Kubu range is made from synthetic wicker that does not have these durability problems. Most synthetic wickers are woven together and then coloured. We use a synthetic wicker called VIRO fibre that is made in the USA by VIRO. Unlike other synthetic wickers, VIRO fibre is a true colour — each woven rod is the same colour the whole way through the rod. This makes our Kubu range guaranteed never to fade - the top layer of the rod can never fade away as it is the exact same colour underneath. It also does not scratch as it is impossible to scratch away a true colour. We have a 5 year warranty covering our Kubu range from scratching, splitting and fading. This warranty also covers the structural frame of the Kubu product.
The cushions on the Kubu are water resistant, but not completely waterproof. It is fine to sit on them in damp swimmers or a damp towel, they can get sprinkled on, but you cannot leave them out in heavy rain. The cushion covers are waterproof, but once water soaks through the covers it could damage the cushion inside. There are zips on each of the back cushions and bottom cushions so you can take the covers off the cushions and wash them if they become dirty. The cushion covers are UV resistant and are protected against fading.
More useful Kubu facts: - It takes 10 years to become fully trained in how to weave our Kubu products - VIRO fibre is 100% insensitive to UV rays - VIRO fibre is a 100% non-toxic synthetic wicker
