Teak wood growing at tropical forests of Burma is rather one of the most world famous species of wood which is highly valued for its steadiness to weather caprice. Teak is not a subject to rotting which makes it indispensable to be used at yachts and premises with high humidity-saunas, pools and bathrooms.
The golden-brown Teak core contrasts sharply with light yellow or ivory sapwood. The wood itself is oily by feel. Teal structure is good to be used under almost extreme conditions as its fibers are straight, rough, disordered and irregular. A real violence of nature! And as the skin of the captain grows rough under the severe sea wind so Teak floors get darker and become even more attractive under the influence of external forces.
