Teak (Tectona Grandis) is a dense and oily hardwood with natural antibacterial and preserving qualities which make it the ideal material for wooden garden furniture. The dense nature of the teak grain makes it very smooth to the touch, preventing it from splintering and consequently has been used to build ships for centuries past. Teak's natural oil content means it is highly resistant to rot, warping, insects and decay.
History Of Teak
Teak was brought to Java, Indonesia in 1816 by Dutch colonists who planted the seedlings of teak trees and is not indigenous to Indonesia.
All of our teak is sourced from harvested trees from sustainable plantations owned by the Indonesian government agency Perum Perhutani who preserves this natural resource by limiting the numbers of felled teak trees each year.
