Cotswold has been the leading teak supplier in Australia for almost three decades. Cotswold Teak uses the designs of many well known architects including Sir Edwin Lutyens, Arne Jacobsen, Mads Odgard, Wilfried Hendriks, Steven Stals and Frans Schrofer, who have produced many classics such as The Lutyens Benches, and the contemporary Palazzo modular seating.
A grade Teak (Tectona Grandis), with its exceptional qualities of aesthetic warmth, durability and stability, has long been the natural choice for leisure furniture. This most valuable, respected, deciduous tree, has also been in use in buildings in India, dating back one thousand years. Naturally oily it resists marine borer and moisture, and has also been used for centuries in boatbuilding. Preparation is all important. Having selected the pieces for a model, the timber is cut, and then kiln dried with great care. High grade, well maintained machinery, in conjunction with a very skilled workforce, ensure that products are made to the highest of standards. Nothing is rushed and nothing is wasted, such is the value of this raw material.
