Our teak is plantation grown in Indonesia. It does not come from rain forests. Teak is not indigenous to Indonesia. It was likely introduced into Java in the fourteenth century, although some reports suggest that it may have been introduced as early as the seventh century.
Present day Indonesian teak plantations were established in semi-arid regions of central Java about 150 years ago by Dutch settlers.
Giati teakwood is a renewable, sustainable resource.
Our EcoTeak™ is absolutely unsurpassed in quality. It is carefully sawn, graded, surfaced and painstakingly re-graded. Only the finest, oil rich, defect free heartwood is selected for our use. Giati teak is then slowly kiln dried, aged and then re-acclimated for maximum stability and longevity.
We pay more for our teakwood.
