It really is an amazing achievement in the current economic climate for a small family business to achieve such an award. Not only have they had limited support from their bank but they have had to trade in these turbulent economic times.  If you also add to this the wettest summer recorded in 100yrs Zebrano Rattan is to be applauded.

Judges' comment: "You don't expect a furniture company to win the Garden & Gardening category, but then you look at what Zebrano has achieved in 12 months and why this category is so relevant to them, and it all becomes crystal clear. Outstanding progress."

The Zebrano Creative Director Zoe Rae said 'We have been working really hard on our website for the last few years and it's really nice to get this award.  We are all delighted!'

The Zebrano team has created a sleek, contemporary website designed to make the customer experience both enjoyable and easy to navigate.  Sharpe photography and revolving images make a visual impact and certainly show the rattan furniture off in the best light.  Zebrano has an interest-free payment option which makes their furniture affordable to everyone.  They really have thought of every option to enable the customer to shop and purchase on their website.

The icing on the cake as far as the consumer is concerned is the fact that not only does the Zebrano website look great, it also offers high quality rattan furniture at great prices.  It's a compelling proposition for the consumer and it's no wonder that despite the worst weather in 100 years Zebrano actually bucked the trend and had their most successful summer to date.

Zebrano Rattan is proof that despite great economic pressures on small businesses these days that with hard work and determination you can have success.
