The other day, I was at this garden furniture outlet, and I saw some tables and chairs made of what was labeled as ”non-wood.”
I asked the owner why they didn’t just call it plastic or polycarbonate, etc.
His answer was kind of interesting. He said it was because, although really just plastic, the material used for the furniture had the surface structure, feel and form of real wood therefore the term non-wood — wood that is not wood.
Now, in the above, replace wood with Iranian and you’ll get a picture of some the characters on this site.
