Why teak furniture is loved all over the world？
because teak has the following properties:
Robust and wear-resistant.
Teak is one of the most robust woods in the world. Teak has a long growth cycle and slow growth, from growth to maturity takes at least 50 years, old teak can generally live more than 100 years. Due to the long growth cycle and delicate texture, the specific gravity is about 1.3 - times the normal value.
Long service life of teak.
Teak furniture does not need to be varnished or necessarily covered. Even without any care, they stay beautiful for a very long time. Mandalay's teak U Bein Bridge has endured more than 170 years of wind and rain! and is still in use today.
Due to its high oil and resin content,
Teak will retain a high gloss over the long term. Therefore, the longer the teak furniture is used, the more beautiful it is.
Teak is not easily warped
The high oil and resin content in teak ensures that the fibers remain supple and break-resistant. Such a self-care wonder material is ideal for furniture. Teak is also ideal for frame constructions, windows and doors because the wood hardly warps.
Clear texture, strong aroma

The longer the tree age, the oilier the teak, the clearer the mineral lines, the stronger the scent, the better the stability and toughness of the wood, the better the resistance to insects, ants, acids and alkalis. Strong and extremely corrosion resistant.
