Teak is a deciduous hardwood tree from the highlands of south-east Asia, it does not come from tropical rainforests.

Teakwood has a naturally high oil content which makes it both stable and resistant to rotting when exposed to climatic extremes.

For several centuries these special qualities have made teakwood the preferred choice for marine decking and construction, and is the reason that it is considered the premium timber for outdoor furniture.
