Dark Colonial Teak
Dark Colonial Teak
Floor code: RARE022
We travelled almost 5,000 miles to reclaim this history-packed reclaimed Burmese Teak from South East Asia. Making this Teak such a rich, dark colour was a happy accident after some of the Teak was stained accidentally, creating this beautiful tone. We loved it so much, we repeated the process, creating Dark Colonial Teak.
Carefully repaired knots and an undulating texture are key features of these engineered 20mm brushed and soft-sanded boards which are available as random width planks up to 2.2m in length.
Teak is known for its beautiful, tight grain and ages gracefully to a regal silver tone. Native to the tropics, it is valued for both its stunning look and exceptional durability. Teak naturally resists decay, insects, rot and is aptly nicknamed ‘the King of the Hardwoods’ due to its extreme stability.
To preserve remaining forests, new Teak has become a controlled timber. As a result of it no longer being freely available, it’s become increasingly more difficult to obtain, making it one of the rarest species of wood in the world. Unlike new Teak, this reclaimed Teak in our Rare Finds is entirely sustainable.
