Chic Teak Sustainability
We believe in the importance of our planet so much so that we ensure all of our teak comes from trusted, sustainable sources, from plantations controlled by the Indonesian government.
They are responsible for the felling and replanting of trees and are also ecologically managed.
We only sell the best teak outdoor garden furniture using the finest grade “A” teak, all finished by hand during the manufacturing process.
The best teak comes from the heartwood of the tree meaning it has very few knots and imperfections making it exceptionally durable and hardwearing.
Why is sustainable wood important?
Any wood sourced from sustainably managed forests is considered suitable. It is renewable because the forest is constantly being monitored to ensure damage to the ecosystem and wildlife is prevented, both over the long and short term.
At Chic Teak we are proud of our affiliation with
The Teak is sourced from plantations owned and managed by the Indonesian Government. It is covered by the FLEGT scheme which is an agreement between European and Indonesian Governments to ensure sustainability throughout the growing and manufacturing process of timber products.

Why we love teak
It is a sustainable wood that offers the best longevity of your teak garden furniture. Indonesian teak is better as it is slower growing, the trees are older when harvested and are tightly regulated to ensure it produces top quality materials and employment remains local. The government assures an economical and ethical balance is maintained at all times.
Rest assured that here all our products are managed and governed by the correct procedures.
