FSC 100% Recycled Teak RECLAIMED SUSTAINABILITY IN ANCIENT BEAUTY
Known as the “king of all woods,” East Teak’s reclaimed teak (tectona grandis) can make any commercial, residential or marine project environmentally friendly, or “green.” Our exclusive and limited line of reclaimed teak is 100% recycled and certified to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards to guarantee that it is genuinely reclaimed and salvaged in a responsible manner.
All of East Teak’s recycled teak is carefully recovered by hand from old structures, thereby avoiding the need to fell living trees – which helps to preserve natural forests and protect the environment. Careful hand grading ensures the highest quality and reusability of the wood. Each piece of wood, therefore, has a special history and story to tell. As a result, you have access to materials with unique character and beauty:
- visually striking coloration that varies from a golden-honey to a warm mocha hue, resulting from ancient natural forest growth and decades of air drying
- wide range of shapes and sizes, reclaimed and re-graded from beams and rafters
- incredible stability, as well as resistance to temperature changes and weather elements, thanks to decades-long seasoning time
- rich, natural oils that make the timber extremely dense and strong
- with recycled woods, allow for some plugs, live knots, occasional filled splits and nail holes
FSC 100% Recycled Rosewood Columns BEAUTIFUL TO THE EYE – EASY ON THE EARTH!
East Teak sources FSC-certified 100% recycled Indian rosewood (dalbergia latifolia) columns that are reclaimed from vintage Asian buildings. Each of these colossal beauties has been shaped by decades of weather and human use; therefore, each column is unique with its own inherent characteristics. Traditionally known for fine woodworking and top quality musical instruments worldwide, rosewood is a highly prized wood best known for its incredible strength and durability, as well as its rich dark hue. Ranging from five to ten feet tall, and a diameter of seven to twelve inches, each individual column has its own distinguishing markings and/or carvings on them.
