existe alguna diferencia entre ambos términos cane y wicker ? una sutileza que escape a la dfefinición del diccionario, que las traduce a ambas como mimbre?

en el caso específico que intento traducir se habla de wicker table y cane chair.

    Technically cane furniture refers to the raw material it is made from. Wicker furniture refers more to the process of weaving the cane to make the furniture. So they can refer to the same chair but be emphasising different aspects of it.

    I didn't know that. Thanks, Lis48.
