The wood used for the Loft collection is teak wood. Teak has been a preferred hardwood for centuries for furniture, construction and shipbuilding, also because it is very durable and suitable for outdoor use. Teak wood is indigenous in India, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, but because of extensive logging, it is only in Myanmar that it still grows in natural forests. In Indonesia, it was introduced in the 16th century and during Dutch colonial time, large plantations were started. After Indonesia became independent the Indonesian government has managed the plantations. This has been quite successful, as teak is a valuable wood and it has always been economical to replant teak after logging trees.
Most of the teak wood in Indonesia that is used for furniture production comes from these plantations. Only for local use sometimes teak from small farms near villages are used. Since it does not grow in the natural forests of Indonesia, no tropical forests are cut for teak wood.
