So what's so special about teak?
Teak trees naturally have an oil that is highly water resistant. and protects the Teak from decay, insects, and bacteria so they're not only beautiful, but durable as well!
Because of this special characteristic, not found in other trees, there has always been interest in using Teak wood for various types of furniture.
Archaeologists have even found untreated teak items dating back over 2,000 years! Most wood items deteriorate rather quickly, especially when not treated, but not Teak!
