Teak (Tectona grandis) wood is hard and heavy with a rough bark that is extremely durable and resistant to moisture. Teak is more durable than any other hardwood and has unparalleled rich beauty. Teak is dense wood with high oil content which gives it a natural ability to withstand the effects of sun, rain, snow or frost without rotting, cracking, or warping. The heavy oil content allows teak wood to protect itself from insects, termites, bacterial diseases and fungi. Teak wood can also withstand the rigors of manufacturing processes without decaying, cracking, or warping. Teak wood is a popular choice of wood for boat making, flooring, furniture, and cabinets. It is highly valued in furniture and flooring industries because of its fine grain, rich color and enduring beauty. The owner of Clipper Trading traveled to Southeast Asia to acquire the most exquisite pieces of teak furniture, teak art and teak sculptures.
