Teak is a tropical wood from the trees of Tectona grandis, from the Verbenaceae family. From the Asian forests of Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar (formerly Burma), teak came to Europe since the early years of the last century, thanks to its unique characteristics and qualities. Teak, in fact, is a wood that is immune to insect attacks and is extremely resistant to water: this is why it is particularly suitable for use in shipbuilding and for the creation of valuable and resistant flooring.
At these exceptional qualities the teak combines a typical natural design, with irregular wavy streaks, which make it a wood of undisputed beauty.
