About Teak



Teak (tectona grandis) is one of the most valuable woods in the world, possessing high strength and durability, along with exceptional beauty. Teak's ability to withstand climate changes without cracking, warping, rotting, swelling and shrinkage (or needing maintenance) is what makes it such a valuable wood and such great material for outdoor furniture.

Teakwood has a life expectancy of 75 years untreated due to its natural rubber content that naturally resists moisture.

About Our Teak Outdoor Furniture



SOURCES

Our Teak furniture comes exclusively from the government plantation resources in Central of Java, Indonesia.

QUALITY

Our Teak Furniture is kiln-dried for at least 1 month to a moisture level of 8% to prevent cracking, warping and mildewing. We use mortise, tenon, dowel, and dove tail for all connection and solid brass or stainless steel fitting to prevent rotting. Our wood and joinery is machine cut to ensure precision and durability.

FINISHING

Our teak furniture is smooth well sanded finish to better show the quality of our teak wood. This would be the best way to buy teak furniture.

TEAK CARE AND MAINTENANCE



LET IT WEATHER

Teak wood changes color overtime. The golden brown color of brand new teak fades and turns soft gray as it is exposed to the elements. The eventual result is distinguished silver that is a mark of true teak furniture. Letting it weather is the easiest way to maintain your teak furniture. Clean your weathered furniture with just soap and water.

Covering your teak furniture

although teak furniture does not need any protection from the rain or sun, a cover might be needed to prevent dirt. We recommend getting a special cover that has breathable fabric. Using a regular cover may result in mildew on your furniture and will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

MAINTAIN THE NEW BROWN COLOR



DO NOT USE TEAK OIL

First of all we do not recommend using teak oil on your furniture if you are planning to use it outdoor! Oiling your teak furniture will ultimately results in mildew and creates black spots on your furniture. It will also leave water spots on your furniture when the teak oil faded and it will need frequent re application as often as 3 months to maintain it. Most importantly, using teak oil will eventually replace the natural oil in teak wood which shorten the life of the furniture. Teak furniture contains natural oil that would last for decades — you don't need to replenish it.

WATER BASED TEAK PROTECTOR

We recommend using a mild water based protector to maintain the brown color on your furniture. Water based protector won't hurt the wood, very easy to apply, dried within 20 minutes and last for 1-2 years depending on sun exposure. We recommend using our Golden care water-based cleaner and protector.

Water based cleaner is not only a high concentration cleaner, but it also contains brightener-ingredients, which bring back the original color of new teak/hardwood.

Water based protector maintains the light-brown color of teak for 1 - 2 years. It prevents black spots, it's not greasy, and so clothes stay clean. It's mild and easy to apply. It does not contain hazardous solvents (Eco-Safe). It provides100% protection from the sun and keeping your furniture in original color for all year long. We recommend applying the teak protector once or twice a year.
