Solid Wood Furniture Western Cape | The World's Finest Hardwood

Exceedingly hard and durable, it has long been used for railway sleepers and flooring. When the London Corn Exchange was being re-built in 1952 a worldwide enquiry was instituted that explored every possible timber to find the most suitable material for making the floors of the Exchange. It had to be of particular hardness and durability because of the heavy use to which it would be put and the damaging effect of the corn kernels ground underfoot.

After much deliberation and a series of stringent tests, a decision was reached to make the floors out of Zambezi Teak. It was simply the best timber in the world for that purpose.

Solid Wood Furniture Western Cape | Zambezi Teak

This characteristic of extreme durability made it the timber of choice for the early settlers in Central Africa to build railway lines, bridges and buildings. Occasionally a building will be demolished, or a hundred year old section of rail line will be lifted and the sleepers (known as ties in America) will be replaced with concrete. We scour Central Africa for the last remaining sources which we buy up to be handcrafted into our Reclaimed Zambezi Teak Collection.

Savanna Wood harvest Zambezi Teak from Certified Forests on a strictly sustainable basis in a manner that guarantees the long term survival of the forest and increases the rate of carbon fixation, helping to reduce global warming.
