Teak

speciality woods

The aesthetic value of Teak (with its outstanding durability and workability) has made it an ideal boat building and construction timber for over 2,000 years.

Traditionally, Teak was sourced in Myanmar (previously Burma) but, with procurement direct from Myanmar banned to boat building and other industries, supply has been limited and of suspect origin. In looking to improve this situation, SpecialityWoods has been responsible for sourcing sustainable alternatives such as FSC Recycled Teak and FSC EcoTeak: Non-Burma Origin™ (Tectona Grandis) that is legal and sustainable.
