Teak (Tectona Grandis) is considered one of the most desirable hardwoods in the world. It is valued for its durability and stability. Its durability and stability are not strictly a result of hardness but of the quality, composition and amount of the teak oil which permeates this wood. Because of this, teak wood can withstand all types of weather and environmental conditions. It is the reason that teak is the favoured wood type in the shipbuilding industry. Teak has high resiliency to extreme heat. It can withstand harsh chemicals, it's resistant to rot, termites and has no reaction to metal contacts. With all of this utility, it is a beautiful wood to look at. The heartwood of the teak tree is generally a dark golden yellow. After the lumber is processed, the color will turn a darker shade of brown with age and exposure.

Teak wood (Tectona Grandis) is commonly considered by ship builders and outdoor furniture manufacturer's to be the planet's most versatile, durable, and valuable hard wood. Teak forests are highly regulated due to the increased demand, ecological and economical impact, and often sub-standard working conditions on plantations. It is not a rain forest species; growing in deciduous forests at a yield of only 3-5 trees per acre.

Thus, it is a precious resource across the globe. However, there are only four countries in the world that contain natural teak forests; Burma, Laos, India, and Thailand, with Burma (Myanmar) accounting for approximately 80% of the world's exported natural teak supply.

Teak is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood. It contains high levels of resinous oils that allow it to be naturally resistant to moisture, repellent to insects, and impervious to the drying effects of weather. Teak also contains silica, a sand-like component which creates a density to the wood that allows it to also be resistant to fungal decay, water, rotting, warping, shrinking, swelling and many damaging chemicals. It will not rust or corrode metals it comes in contact with and it can withstand the elements of all seasons, with its beauty increasing with its age. No other wood compares to teak regarding its durability, elegance, stability and low maintenance; making it the ultimate material choice for furniture construction and ship building worldwide.
