MATERIALS AND MAINTENANCE TEAK WOOD
The collection of Life Outdoor Living is made from recycled teak; this is a purely natural product, meaning the wood is given a second life. Because this is a recycled natural product, every individual table has its own structure and look. Disparity in measurements and the structure are properties of the wood; this means that every product is unique. Recycled teak has a natural appearance and develops a beautiful silver grey shade. Scratches, dents, cracks, knots, filling or other damage is inherent in recycled teak and these do not have an impact on the life span. Normal use of the product will result in small cracks (hairline cracks) and openings appearing in the wood; this does not detract from the quality or the life span of the table, but to the contrary is characteristic of the charm of this product.
