The Benefits and Beauty of Teak
Teak wood is universally recognized for its quality, durability, and beauty. Teak is a very hard, densely grained wood with high oil content. The unique combination of these characteristics makes teak naturally resistant to moisture, rot, warping, shrinking, splintering, insects, and fungus. It is considered the ideal wood for outdoor furniture.
Karel Simeon, president and founder of Jewels of Java, came to America in 1989 and quickly realized he could share some of the best of his homeland?Indonesian island Java?with his new land. Karel began importing a variety of clothing and gifts, but soon expanded to include casual furniture. He opened a teak manufacturing plant in his hometown village, providing jobs to displaced farmers there and showcasing the master craftsmen of the area. Now Jewels of Java specializes in casual outdoor furniture crafted with quality plantation-grown teak and sling seating. The company's New York facility also produces made-to-order Sunbrella fabric cushions filled with quick-dry foam.Shop All Jewels of Java
