Rattan and Wicker Shops on Penang Island


View Rattan Shops on Penang Island in a larger map

As society moves away to embrace plastic utensils, the number of rattan and wicker shops on Penang Island is diminishing every year. Nevertheless there are still a few wicker shops left. They are one of the few endangered trades of Penang specialising in creating beautiful crafts from rattan.

Thean Seng Huat is a rattan shop at the junction of Beach Street with Prangin Lane. Unfortunately I do not have its phone number but you can view its photo below. For more information on its architectural details, read 492 & 490 Beach Street.

 Lee Soo Kee Rattan sells wicker items such as stairs, baskets and other household items. It is located along Chulia Street, next to Chulia Heritage Hotel. The "Rotan" Sculpture installed on the side wall of the shop celebrates this particular shop.
