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.
Our recycled glass is melted at around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Our artisan then blows the glass onto the wooden roots at around 960-1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The roots are often burnt during this process, and as a result there may be some black residue- leaving a charred appearance in some areas. Each wood piece is then washed and treated, but this heat effect sometimes goes a bit deeper in the wood which can be expected, and may rub off when handled.
