The bowl rests in an upright frame traditionally made of rattan, but also sometimes made of sturdy wicker or wood. While similar designs of furniture have existed around the world, the papasan was introduced in the United States in the 1950s, and rose to great popularity in the 1970s. The cushion of the chair is typically thick velveteen material filled with cotton fluff.Read more about papasan chair In traditional papasans, the cushion can be removed and used outside of the sturdy frame, although it is hand-wash only.
