WWF Singapore Earth Hour 2023
In recognition of Earth Hour 2023, we will be donating S$1 to WWF Singapore for each order placed between 13 March - 24 April 2023!
Championing sustainability has always been a key pillar of Kathy's Cove, and we would like to further support our cause by raising funds for WWF's efforts in fighting climate change.
If you would also like to join us in making small but vital steps to building a greener future for the next generation, you may also donate directly here.

What is rattan?
Rattan is a type of vine that is native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australasia. It is commonly used in the production of furniture, baskets, and other household items due to its strength and flexibility.
The material is harvested from the outer layer of the vine, which is then peeled and processed to be used in various forms such as whole cane, core, or split.
Rattan furniture has become increasingly popular, thanks in part to its natural, organic appearance and its durability. It is also a sustainable option, as it is a rapidly renewable resource and requires less energy to produce compared to traditional furniture materials like metal or plastic.
Additionally, it's lightweight and easy to maintain, making it a great option for homeware, furniture and sustainable toys.
What is Mindi Hard Wood?
Mindi wood, also known as West Indian Walnut or white cedar, is a type of hardwood that is native to Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
It's known for its durability, strength, and is often used in the construction of furniture, flooring, and decorative items due to its attractive grain patterns and natural color variations that range from pale yellow to dark brown.
Mindi wood is a sustainable hardwood option as it is harvested from managed forests and is a fast-growing tree species.
Are your rattan items waterproof?
All our rattan furniture and rattan toys are handcrafted using natural rattan and wood, they are hence not waterproof and are best kept indoors.
To increase the longevity of your rattan items, keep your rattan products sheltered and limit their exposure to rain and extreme elements.
How should we care for our rattan items?
To remove dust or spill, gently wipe down our products with a moist cloth.
To clean any woven rattan surfaces, use a soft brush to gently clean them and avoid the use of abrasive cleaning agents.
Let your rattan furniture or rattan toy dry for a couple of hours under natural sunlight if it is dampened.
