Check the label on Thompsons Water Seal or a competitor.It is a clear pentrating protectant for exposed wood,concrete,decks,rope etc,etc.Dries completely,can be tinted I believe.Does need to be reapplied from time to time.

I love jute chairs. And anything made out of jute.
Haitians come to PR to sell their handmade crafts, beautiful pieces, I must say.

The jute and rattan are worked wet. When it's dry, it gets tight. So the dryier it gets, the more likely will be to break, eventually.

If I want it colored, I'll tinted it. But to preserve it, or keep it from breaking I spray it with water once in a while. But then again, I live in a warm weather place, and dryies fast.

Maybe there's a comercial product for it.
