GBO's synthetic wicker furniture is made predominantly using strong but light aluminium framing. The weaving material is made by Rehau, a polymer specialist from Germany since 1948 and Viro, the first all-weather wicker inducted into the prestigious material library of Material ConneXion. The library has four locations worldwide: Milan, New York, Bangkok, Cologne.
These synthetic weaving materials are 100% UV resistant, robust, durable, low-maintenance and easy to clean. One aspect in choosing the right supplier for our weaving material was due to the specific type of polyethylene, our weaving materials can be recycled completely residue free. The world’s best weavers use this quality product to manufacture furniture for Groundbreakers Outdoors and Interiors.
We have chosen our outdoor fabrics carefully too and decided on Sunproof 100% solution dyed Olefin yarn. Sunproof fabric is 100% recyclable. It has a high UV protection rating capable of blocking 97% UV rays. It is stain resistant and water repellent. Perfect for all outdoor applications, it is proven to have a strong ability to withstand the effects of exposure to sunlight, wind, rain and humidity. Sustainable bamboo and rattan are a common material used for the construction of Groundbreakers Outdoors and Interiors tables, chairs, hanging baskets and serving trays and wall art. These materials are strong, robust and the natural character of these materials add great texture and an organic feel to any room. We use predominantly reclaimed teak wood for our timber furniture requirements. Teak’s high oil content, high tensile strength, natural durability and water resistance makes it particularly suitable for outdoor furniture. It has the advantage of being dry and stable and a sustainable source of timber. The small quantities of new teak we do use are from sustainably managed forests. Other wood we use includes non-threatened species such as Acacia and Mango woods. We have a number of relationships with bespoke furniture makers and factories both nationally and internationally allowing us to source quality furniture at great prices. We are excited to be bringing you our furniture and interiors collection.
