Nope. They have split rattan, and Danish cord, seagrass rope, and all kinds of cane, but no rattan rope.

That chair is woven with binder cane. Most likey it's 5mm binder cane. If you are doing it yourself soak the cane in COLD water not hot, lot's of internet sites recommend hot water (hot tap water) but that can discolor the cane (goes dull and greyish). Cold works perfectly!
