About Shorea Wood
Shorea is possibly the best wood choice for outdoor furniture. Related to Burma teak, this hardwood grows naturally and plentifully in the Pacific Rim countries, making it considerably less expensive than teak. Because shorea is dense, heavy, and hard, and contains an abundance of natural oils, it is highly resistant to rot, bug infestation, weather, and marring.
Shorea is strong and weather-resistant enough to be left untreated. If left untreated, each piece will weather to a nice shade of gray. The weathering process will change the color, but the grain will still be smooth. You may treat each piece with Teak Oil to prolong weathering. Each piece is durable, classic, and elegant.
An Eco-Friendly Choice
We realize the importance of preserving our environment. Regulations on harvesting shorea wood promote the sustainability of the species and encourage responsible practices for the sake of conservation. Shorea trees are not allowed to be harvested until they reach a certain size, which allows younger trees to grow and reproduce. When you purchase furniture made of shorea wood, you're not only getting a piece of great quality and durability, but you're also contributing to the wise use of natural wood resources.
