How does teak hold up to the elements?
Our goal has always been to craft furniture for a long life outside. When sourcing materials for our furniture, we consider every element (including location, weather, and use) to ensure longevity.
We use teak because it repels moisture and performs well in extreme weather conditions. It's resistant to most forms of rot, fungi, and pests that typically attack wood. When teak is exposed to the elements for a long period of time, eventually it matures from the original honey gold shade to a unique silver patina. Should you see any signs of mold/mildew, these spots can be cleaned and should not be considered a defect. Black spots being present on the product after being exposed to the outdoor environment are simply a result of humidity build-up in the wood and are natural mold spores.
