Wicker is a sort of furniture or storage container woven from any of an assortment of stick-like materials. These materials have been around for centuries and include rattan, willow, reed and bamboo. Because of this wicker is not a genuine material, but rather a procedure or a manufacturing process. The word wicker is thought to come from Scandinavian countries. The word “wika” translates from Swedish to “twist” in Engish, and vikker translates to willow material. Wicker baskets and furniture are generally made of the organic material of various plants and trees, however synthetic plastic strands are used as well to make wicker display baskets that can be more easily washed. Wicker is light yet durable, making it appropriate for furniture and storage containers that will be moved around regularly like yard and porch furniture is.

For produce storage baskets and display containers like a reinforcing casing is not required so the whole piece is woven from the wicker material.
