When I look at this picture, I'm reminded of "The Wave" formation in Arizona's Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. But these undulating lines come from much further away — the isles of Indonesia, where sustainable wood manufacturer Indo Teak reclaims its exquisite teak flooring. More photos below:Indo Teak reclaims its wood by hand from historic buildings across Indonesia slated for demolition. No living trees are ever cut in the making of its salvaged teak flooring, paneling, decking, and other hardwood products.
The line includes a wide palette of flooring in natural unfinished and custom prefinished colors, as well as a handcrafted "Boat Wood" collection of weathered and painted teak, reminiscent of traditional Balinese fishing boats.
The San Diego, California-based company has a zero-waste manufacturing policy, utilizing every remnant of its reclaimed harvest. All of Indo Teak's offerings are 100% FSC-certified, use formaldehyde-free adhesives and VOC-free finishes, and contribute toward LEED certification of building projects.
In addition, Indo Teak is partnered with SurfAid International, a humanitarian non-profit, to aid the Indonesian communities from where its lumber is sourced, and help improve the health, well-being, and self-reliance of those people in need.
