All our furniture is manufactured at our factories in Burma. We export worldwide whilst still maintaining a strong foothold in South East Asia. Tectonis Grandis, the locals also call it SAC, is one the worlds premier hardwood timbers. It is famous for its mellow colour, fine grain and durability. It occurs naturally only in Thailand, India, Burma and Lao. It's also well established in tropical Africa. It's also been introduced into a number of other countries at trial levels.
The durability and workability of teak was recognized many
centuries ago, leading to it's widespread distribution and
cultivation throughout the tropics. Today teak ranks as the
premier hardwood for use in extreme conditions and in the
production of fine furniture and intricate carvings, there
is nothing better.
Most furniture can be crafted from reclaimed teak.
Unfortunately there are many unscrupulous operators who
rather than take the time and effort to source widely
available reclaimed teak plunder already dangerously low
reserves of new teak for quick profits. Their conscience
allows them to use new growth teak which is machine
lathed and then screwed and glued. It takes a craftsman
to use reclaimed teak and they are a scarce resource. We
operate an apprentice scheme and sponsor our new
apprentices and encourage them to learn traditional
skills in order to secure their future and ours.
In Thailand, harvesting of teak has been prohibited
since 1989; supply from Lao has also been drastically
constrained. This is quite worrying when you consider the
massive market for teak products throughout Thailand and the
rest of Asia.
Investment is needed in developing sustainable teak
plantations for the future demands of this valuable
hardwood. Many parts of Asia are scarred by
deforestation, leading to widespread soil erosion,
flooding and the elimination of many hill tribes.
When you purchase teak furniture please ask the
salesperson about the origin of the raw materials used
in constructing the piece of furniture. We all need to
act responsibly in protecting a valuable and valued
resource for future generations.
