About Lloyd Loom Wicker Furniture

When Don and Dudley Flanders purchased the Lloyd Manufacturing works in 1982 from Heywood-Wakefield to form Lloyd Flanders, they began manufacturing contemporary loom wicker furniture that's durable enough for outdoor use. Each piece of loom furniture uses the same process to create the loom fabric. A consistently smooth weave with no peeling, burs or cracks are a result of advanced technologies in the process. The loom fabric contains aluminum wires that provide extra support. The cord used to weave the wicker fabric is tightly woven, glued and coated with silicon. Its then dried and painted with a specially formulated paint. The furniture is then backed in an oven to cure the finish. Ultimately, the loom wicker is extremely resistant to water, moisture and is extremely durable.
