Teak is a heavy, hardwood that doesn't rot. In fact, it is particularly resistant to extreme heat and humidity, as it contains a natural oil that protects it and prevents it from rotting. Teakwood is also very flexible, and so it doesn't lose its shape once it has been worked. It is therefore very highly valued for producing fashionable garden furniture, with classic designs that never go out of style. With its outstanding qualities, it has also become a material that is very much in demand for building sailboat hulls. Teakwood is a long-lasting hardwood that maintains its priceless qualities over time.
