About

Native to the tropics, Teak is valued for both its beauty and durability. Teak naturally resists decay, insects, rot and is aptly nicknamed “the king of the hardwoods” due to its extreme stability. To reclaim this Teak we travelled over 5,000 miles to Burma, extracting them as floorboards from a South Asian 19th century colonial home. Teak is known for its beautiful, tight grain and ages gracefully to a regal silver. Unlike North American timbers that utilised waterways for transportation, Teak was transported by land using elephants. Due to Teak’s stability, it has been used for centuries in marine manufacturing, utilised as decking on vessels across the world.

A RECLAIMED FLOOR

The charm of a reclaimed wood floor is hard to define and impossible to replicate. Reclaimed wood holds wonderful records of a past life, from beautiful patinas, rusty nail holes and weather cracks, to the smooth sections which have been corroded by the repeated touch of a thousand hands. The character that reclaimed wood holds is inimitable and its unique history provides a talking point to all who come into contact with it.
