All our solid teak furniture is handmade by craftsmen from recycled teak. The teak is taken mainly from old houses and bridges that are being demolished to make way for new.

Traditional and Contemporary Styled Solid Teak Furniture
We only produce traditional and contemporary solid teak furniture at our factories in Burma.Each piece is unique and not mass produced, our furniture has a timeless elegance and will last a lifetime. We ship our furniture from Burma to Hua Hin each and every week of the year.

A Common Myth
Many companies stress the age of their teak and use this factor in justifying price. All reclaimed teak is old, when you consider the trees growing life, then its second life as part of a construction, your reclaimed teak will always be around 80 to 120 years old. We offer a solid range of teak furniture at a very fair price, guaranteed.
Rubberwood/Parawood/MDF/Particle Boards/Veneers

Indonesian and Malaysian Teak.

None of these materials are used in the manufacture of our furniture. These materials
soon lose their showroom lustre and won't stand the test of time.

The product we offer is not competing with the lower priced imitations, our furniture is suitable for heavy use and will last a lifetime. Many hotels, restaurants and bars have our furniture in daily use, we have a large portfolio available upon request.

Furniture should be used and admired, choosing a lower priced option will often leave you feeling cheated in both these aspects.

"if we wouldn't have it in our home rest assured
we wouldn't send it to yours"

 

A Brief History of Teak

All our furniture is manufactured at our factories in Burma. We export worldwide whilst still maintaining a strong foothold in South East Asia. Tectonis Grandis, the locals also call it SAC, is one the worlds premier hardwood timbers. It is famous for its mellow colour, fine grain and durability. It occurs naturally only in Thailand, India, Burma and Lao. It's also well established in tropical Africa. It's also been introduced into a number of other countries at trial levels.

The durability and workability of teak was recognized many centuries ago, leading to it's widespread distribution and cultivation throughout the tropics. Today teak ranks as the premier hardwood for use in extreme conditions and in the production of fine furniture and intricate carvings, there is nothing better.

Most furniture can be crafted from reclaimed teak. Unfortunately there are many unscrupulous operators who rather than take the time and effort to source widely available reclaimed teak plunder already dangerously low reserves of new teak for quick profits. Their conscience allows them to use new growth teak which is machine lathed and then screwed and glued. It takes a craftsman to use reclaimed teak and they are a scarce resource. We operate an apprentice scheme and sponsor our new apprentices and encourage them to learn traditional skills in order to secure their future and ours.

In Thailand, harvesting of teak has been prohibited since 1989; supply from Lao has also been drastically constrained. This is quite worrying when you consider the massive market for teak products throughout Thailand and the rest of Asia.

Investment is needed in developing sustainable teak plantations for the future demands of this valuable hardwood. Many parts of Asia are scarred by deforestation, leading to widespread soil erosion, flooding and the elimination of many hill tribes.

When you purchase teak furniture please ask the salesperson about the origin of the raw materials used in constructing the piece of furniture. We all need to act responsibly in protecting a valuable and valued resource for future generations.
