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"

 

Ethical Policy

Here at Siam Old Teak we are committed to being a responsible furniture manufacturer. We have always been inspired by the Far East and focus on creating beautiful, high quality furniture from natural and recycled materials.

All our exclusive pieces are hand made in Burma by our own artisans. We now have five small factories in the Myawaddy region with its exotic tropical surroundings; it is a great place to visit and to work in. All work is carried out using perfected traditional methods with modern management processes.

The increase in popularity of Burmese made furniture has meant an improvement in lifestyle for many local people. The staff at our factories are looked after really well and receive above average pay rates. We also run an apprentice scheme which is managed by some of our semi-retired craftsmen/artisans. We have worked hard to create a sense of community for all our staff and their families.

The teak used for all our furniture is sourced in Burma. We work with our local management and purchase old buildings that are being cleared to make way for new, the structure of these buildings is teak, old teak. From time-to-time we are able to purchase old teak bridges which are dismantled and shipped to our factories.

Rapid expansion in Burma has seen substantial building work across the country and the old-style wooden/teak buildings are being replaced with more sanitary and modern brick and tile housing. As a result, there is a large supply of seasoned teak which is very durable and has a beautiful patina. Although the old teak is dry we still kiln dry for four weeks prior to manufacture, we take the moisture content down to around 10% before we allow the teak to 'rest' The resting period allows the teak to reabsorb moisture from the atmosphere, we manufacture at a moisture content of 12% The moisture level is measured using electronic instruments.

We don't 'scar' the earth to make our furniture.
