Kediri Teak Furniture

What is Teak?

Teak is a beautiful tropical hardwood derived from large deciduous trees, tectona grandis, that also produce fragrant white flowers. Whereas some companies offer mango wood as ‘teak’, our Kediri teak collection is the real deal and we use only new wood, not recycled or reconstituted. The wood is highly prized for its durability and water resistance which is why it has been the choice of boat-builders for over 150 years. It contains silica, has a high oil content and great inherent strength with a tight grain. The word for teak comes from the Tamil word 'thekku'.

The Kediri Teak Pedigree

To ensure the highest quality for your Kediri furniture, we chose not to use recycled teak as it is a little too unpredictable in consistency and colour. Instead we did some serious homework and travelled extensively to source new wood from sustainable sources. The wood we use is closely monitored through the Indonesian Wood Legality Verification System (SVLK) which is run by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and came into force in March 2013.

You Buy - We Plant

As voluntary supporters of Trees4Trees, we donate a share of the money you spend on our exclusive Kediri teak furniture to help fund replanting schemes in Indonesian communities. The organisation distributes free seedlings to groups of farmers and teaches best forestry practices for growing success. A swing tag on your furniture details the World Identification Number which lets you track where the new trees are planted.

Manufactured with care

The timber for each piece of Kediri teak furniture is methodically kiln-dried and treated to protect its future stability before production begins. Once complete, the entire piece is hand waxed to enhance its grain and protect the wood. As every piece is hand finished from an entirely natural product, variations in knots, grain detailing, mineral deposits and minor imperfections may sometimes occur. These are considered part of the uniqueness and charm of the furniture.

An interesting fact!

Hindu monks of the 14th Century are actually responsible for the Indonesian teak in our Kediri range. They brought the species from India and, due to the perfect growing conditions in its new home, it went on to thrive and become one of the world’s most valued hardwoods. Aside from its use in furniture, teak is also used to create everything from huge sailing ships to didgeridoos!
