Not everyone might know its name, but Filipinos are no strangers to the solihiya weave. We often see this sunburst pattern on local rattan furniture, and it's widely used to this day for being as beautiful as it is versatile and durable. In fact, this weaving pattern is becoming more popular overseas, too, particularly in Korea where it's used as an accent in minimalist spaces. With the calm, tropical vibe it adds to a space, we really don't blame them.
Here are pieces of furniture with the traditional weave that you can shop online:

2. Lulu Solihiya Sideboard from Yanna's Home
We love how the solihiya webbing on the cabinet doors gives this sideboard some texture without losing that clean, minimalist vibe.
