Where does our Teak come from?

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.

What is FSC?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organisation founded in 1993 to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests. The FSC trademark on a product indicates that the wood used in its construction comes from a source that has been certified by the FSC as meeting these standards. Click here for the FSC Website.

Does Corido use FSC certified Teak?

Corido is committed to the principles of the FSC and when possible use FSC certified teak in our furniture. Although we use FCS certified timber where we can, currently there is not enough FSC certified teak available for our total production. You can rest assured that all our teak is sustainably, responsibly and legally sourced, as it is audited and issued with SVLK certification to show that the teak has been legally harvested and that the furniture can be sold and marketed in any EU country. SVLK (Sistem Verificasi Legalitas Kayu) is Indonesia’s mandatory national timber legality and sustainability certification system.
