Fairtrade Lifestyle is perhaps best known for our eclectic mix of hand crated, unusual items. So it’s unsurprising that when we shine the spotlight on our teak range, you find items that ooze style and individuality. You’ll discover these fair trade gems in both our furniture ranges and our homeware accessories.
Drum roll please!
Our Java Teak Storage Drums are part of our extensive range of storage units. They encompass all the qualities customers have come to expect from us. They’re hand crafted, high quality, solid wood units with a stylish ‘difference’. Their cylindrical ‘drum’ shape is aesthetically striking and charmingly different! Each piece is elegantly finished with a light natural wax. This further enhances the breath-taking beauty of the wood’s grain. It also helps to protect its surface. These solid wood beauties are available in a range of sizes and combination of drawers.
If you’re seeking the ‘wow factor’, then look no further! Our legendary Teak Yuyu Chairs deliver on all counts. They’re available in two sizes and in both light and dark finish.
Please be aware though, these are highly sought after and individually hand crafted, so stock availability can vary throughout the year.
Fancy a tipple…?
Our fabulous fair trade Teak Folding Bars are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. They’re perfect for social gatherings. They look great, but they’re also incredibly practical. The bar simply closes when not in use for easy and space saving storage. Each side when open acts as a support for the bar top, which is hinged to fold away when not fully open.
Our Teak Folding Bars are crafted from kiln-dried grade A teak. They are finished to a high quality, in a natural wax finish. The wax prolongs the life of the bar, as well as enhancing the rich colour of the teak.
You can enjoy all year round benefit from our teak folding bars. They’re ideal for Christmas parties, or equally perfect for making the most of those long, balmy evenings by the barbecue.
We want you to be ‘over the moon’!
Our Java Moon Cabinet is an ingenious piece of design and craftsmanship! It can be used to wonderful effect as one large unit, or as two separate, smaller stand-alone units. Not only is it incredibly versatile and practical, its curvaceous design and hand carved features are stunning. There are four useful drawers that sit beneath a cleverly designed arrangement of display shelves. This beautiful storage cabinet is hand crafted from plantation teak enhanced by a light wax finish.
So that’s an introduction to a small selection of our fabulous solid teak furniture items. Next we’d like to share with you some of our lovely teak homeware gifts and accessories.
Teak Bowls & Buckets
Our range of fair trade teak bowls and buckets are brimming with character and rustic charm. With lots of unique shapes and sizes, there’s hopefully something to appeal to most tastes. Each bowl (just like each piece of wood) is entirely individual. Therefore the colour and grain may vary. Likewise as each bowl is meticulously hand crafted, shapes and sizes can also vary. These individual attributes add to the charm and appeal of this lovely range of teak homeware gifts and accessories.
A few words about Teak…
Teak originates from a tropical hardwood tree species. It is said to smell like leather when freshly milled. Teak is particularly valued for its durability and water and pest resistance. Fortuitously, it is also durable even when not treated with oil or varnish.
Teak is used in the manufacture of both indoor and outdoor furniture and is also used as a veneer for indoor furnishings.
The vast majority of commercially harvested teak is grown on teak plantations found in Indonesia, which is home to many of our fair trade items. Aside from its natural beauty, teak is one of the most valuable of all woods.
As always, please bear in mind that stock availability varies as all our items are hand crafted, and new lines are introduced regularly. So keep checking back with us!
In the meantime, we hope you’ve enjoyed reading about our fantastic range of teak furniture and teak gifts and accessories. As always, if you have any questions or comments, then we’d love to hear from you.
