Do you know the history of this special material?
Teak is native to Burma, Laos, Thailand and India and has been later translocated into other countries. In the 16th century it was by legend brought by the Buddhist monks from Burma to Indonesia. At the end of the 1590s Dutch traders established large teak cultivations in Indonesia, which were later used as source of material to face the rivalry with the British Empire from the Dutch East India Company.
Indonesian Teak silviculture was regulated by the Dutch colonial administration from 1602 until the Independence in 1961: under the ministry of Agriculture the forestry sector was set up as an independent entity named Perhutani and then in 1978 split into Perhum Perhutani on Java. Perhum Perutani still manages all Indonesian teak plantations, encouraging the rural economy and the environment though an efficient forestry management.
