Seagrass lives in the coastal waters in most of the continents. Seagrass is unique because it is the only flowering plant that can live underwater. Dried seagrass makes beautiful furniture. Seagrass furniture is woven by hand, while the plants are still green. Because the seagrass dries, the furniture will lose the green color, become firm and ready to use. Maintenance - The smooth and shiny exterior makes it very easy to maintain. Use a soft cloth along the rows of the grass to get rid of dust or dirt. Steam the seagrass to straighten if you please. We recommend keeping your seagrass furniture indoors. If you take it outside, protect it from rain and rough weather. If exposed to rain, there is a possibility of rotting since it’s a natural material. Also, direct exposure to sunlight will fade the color of the seagrass.

Teak is a tropical hardwood tree found in India and South East Asia, which we source from the overgrow on rainforest floors. Teak has a high protective oil content, making it capable of lasting a lifetime. It can even resist extreme temperatures and humidity. It’s a lovely natural material that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Our supplier uses teak branch and teak root. Now what is the difference between these two? Teak branches are collected branches from the trees. These branches are either found or left-over from other furniture making. Teak root comes from the trunk of the tree and is obtained from fallen teak trees. Note that the teak trees are not cut down for production! Maintenance - You can use a cloth with warm water and mild soap to clean your teak furniture. Be sure to wipe off all the soap residue after cleaning and let the wood dry properly. If there are any stains, remove them gently. Don’t use a sponge because this can scratch the wood. If you want a longer lasting maintenance and protect your teak wood furniture, you can use teak oil to waterproof it and prevent it from spots. If you polish your teak root wood, you get a beautiful golden color. Exposed to the elements, the teak root wood color will fade to a silver-grey shade.
