Wicker furniture is found in many homes around the world and is considered to be a very durable, sturdy type of furniture that can be used for both indoor and outdoor uses. However, many might not know that Wicker has an extensive history that spans 5,000 years to the present day. It is actually to be considered the oldest type of furniture-making technique in the history of the world. Ancient Egyptians are the supposed inventors of Wicker furniture. It was from Egyptian culture that Wicker furniture was passed on to other Ancient Civilizations, eventually to Rome spreading to European countries, and then finally arriving to America on the Mayflower in the form of a baby carriage.
