Teak furniture is popular for its appearance and its durability: a hard wood, native to the tropics that possesses natural properties that many other woods do not have.
The timber comes from trees 70yrs - 100yrs old, making the wood heavier and more solid than wood from younger tree. The wood is dried taking 7-10days in a kiln before production can commence. The result is the highest quality teak furniture with a beautiful grain and consistent colour.
Due to its natural oils, Teak is able to ward off dry rot, making it a very popular choice for shipbuilding and for all outdoor uses. The oils help to protect the wood from invaders such as parasites and fungi.
Teak is known for its long life and durability and the beautiful greyish silver patina that it eventually acquires after many years in the sun.
