FSC Recycled Teak
Creating something new from old wood, such as abandoned houses, gives repurpose for these beautiful timbers. After sorting the materials, foreign objects, such as nails are extensively removed from the wood, and it is then cut to size and sent for further mechanical surface processing in preparation for outdoor furniture production.
Recycled teak combines both the durability and strength of traditional teak, with the environmental benefits associated with recycling existing materials, and to ease the pressure off plantation and new raw materials.
Recycled teak has a natural look and feel. As it is a handmade natural product, every single piece is unique with its own individual character and charisma, no two pieces being identical.
One of the beautiful characteristics of recycled teak wood, is the imperfections, hinting at its history and use in an earlier life. These imperfections include laminations, patches, holes, minor variations in hue, minor scratches, dents, cracks, knotholes, inserts or other characteristics typical of up-cycled teak wood. None of these characteristics will affect the life of the product, but they will make the product uniquely yours. The unique features of these recycled timbers, will also sometimes show oxidation marks where there were once nails or other metals in the wood. These may cause dark black spots and are a feature of these reclaimed teak products.
