The highly sought after teak tree is native to Myanmar, India, Thailand and Indonesia. It is know for its richly dark gold wood and incredible durability when exposed to the elements. The wood is, by nature, resistant to moisture, rot, decay, warping, and cracking. The trees population has become strained due to its highly sought after properties. Our teak wood products are sourced sustainably from either highly regulated plantations, where restrictions are enforced to control the rate of harvest, or sourced by reclaiming and recycling existing teak.
