Teak wood is native to the tropics and is very commonly found in Southeast Asia and especially in Indonesia. Teak wood is one of the most valued and most expensive compared to other woods, such as acacia, pine or oak. Teak wood has high amount of natural oil and rubber and is more weather-resistant than other woods. This is why you'll find teak wood more commonly used as outdoor furniture or kitchenware.
The oils and rubber in teak wood prevent parasites or fungi to grow and it also doesn't need application of weather-proof oil or treatments. As it weathers over time, the wood goes from a honey brown color to a silvery gray. In caves in Western India, objects made from teak more than 2,000 years ago have been found intact. This initial investment on spending on teak wood would make sense if you compared to replacing the kitchenware over time.
Instant classic! It’s subtly upgrading, like a great item we’ve had forever ( and probably will use it for a long time). My husband noticed this plate in the middle of all the things and thought it was so nice and asked where I got it from. Fast shipping and super responsive seller. So happy to have found this store.
I was looking for a new serving plate and found this one at KasihCoop. It is perfect! Such a beautiful wood and a great size! I love it!
