Teak (Tectona Grandis) is a tall sturdy evergreen tree indigenous to the tropical climate of south eastern Asia. Indonesian teak wood is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood.
It naturally contains high levels of resinous oil that act as an insect repellent and this allows teak to be resistant to moisture and the drying affects of weather. No other wood compares to teak for durability, elegance and stability.
In addition to this teak is a low maintenance natural material, making it the ultimate wood for choice for furniture construction. This unique wood is cultivated in immense plantations on the island of Java, Indonesia and is only cut down after decades of growth.
It takes at least 40 years before a teak tree can be felled only then does the wood possess the necessary qualities that make teak the perfect choice for outdoor furniture. Local Government authorities then ensure as many trees are replanted as are felled, so that a natural balance can be preserved and maintained for the environment.
