Our teak is sourced from the sustainable plantations of Perum Perhutani, on the island of Java. These plantations are owned and managed by the government who have a strict policy with regard to the age, size and number of trees felled each year, together with a comprehensive sustainable replanting program.
Teak, Tectona grandis, is a dense, close-grained hardwood high in natural oils and rubber. These characteristics give teak strength and durability, making it virtually impervious to the effects of rain, salt, sun or snow and hence very resistant to rotting.

Yes, the properties of teak enable it to withstand the most inclement of weather - hence its use as decking on ships. However, it will get dirtier than furniture enjoyed during the spring and summer only. For storage we recommend an outhouse, garage or garden shed. However, please ensure that there is not a dramatic change in the heat and humidity as this can cause your furniture to crack.
Left untreated and exposed to the elements, teak will weather to a beautiful silver grey patina and darken slightly if kept indoors. Should you wish to maintain its colour, we would recommend applying our teak sealer, which will help your teak furniture maintain its colour for a much longer period.

Teak is a natural material and fine cracks can appear especially on heavier components and the end grain. This minor checking may appear or disappear depending on the relative humidity and weather conditions. This is a natural process and will not affect the strength or structural integrity of your furniture.
