What is teak and how to care for it

Teak is a tropical wood with a natural golden-brown colour. Teak is often used for outdoor furniture and is valued for its strength, durability, and water- and weather resistance. Teak wood is a dense close-grained type of hardwood with a smooth texture. Our care products will help to prolong the longevity of your teak garden furniture and preserve the warm natural colour. The teak we use for our furniture is sourced in special forests where the timber is approved and forested under the certification scheme SVLK (Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu, Indonesia’s timber legality assurance system). This guarantees that trees are forested responsibly, i.e., preserving the natural environment, and preventing deforestation. Read more about our Responsibility Principles.
