The cane is actually the stem of the bamboo tree, which is stripped down lengthwise, then treated and processed into a strong and sturdy material suitable for furniture manufacturing. Very popular in 17th.-century, British colonial homes, it has remained popular in England till today.

Cane furniture, in its elegant simplicity, significantly enhances the visual appeal of its surroundings.

One fascinating thing about these benches is their cleaning process, which is almost negligible. There's hardly any effort needed for maintaining and cleaning the shower bench. They could be cleaned as per the instructions of the manufacturer. As a matter of fact, one can also clean them using regular detergent and water in a ratio of 1:2 with a soft bristled brush. There are products available in the market that could be helpful to regain the original honey color of the teak wood bench instead of the silver-gray patina, should you find it displeasing.
