Horestco uses first grade plantation grown teakwood (Tectona Grandis), obtained from Perhutani - the most reputable, legal source of timber in Indonesia. Teak is a very stable medium hardwood timber that is resistant to rot making it the first choice for marine and outdoor use over the decades. The high oil content of the teak wood used in our furniture enables it to withstand the harshest weather conditions with a minimum of maintenance. Over time, teak acquires a silver grey Patina that complements any outdoor setting.
Reclaimed Teak is teak timber sourced from old and reconstructed homes, decomissioned boats and old railway tracks. Naturally seasoned over the years and often does not require further kiln-drying process. It is a highly stable timber, rich in texture and features eco-friendly properties - highly attractive to the environmentally conscious end-user. Furniture and accessories made from reclaimed teak often flies off the store shelves much earlier than other furniture. Reclaimed Teak timber has a uniquely aged texture with deep dominant grains and may have nail marks.
