IndoTeak Design Reclaimed Teak Floors

Our favourite eco pick from Surfaces 2012 was FCS recycled teak solid and engineered hardwood flooring by IndoTeak Design.

All of the teak wood is reclaimed by hand from historic buildings and old fishing boats from Indonesia. They also make sure that all adhesives and special finishes are formaldehyde and VOC free. Naturally weathered over time, the hand selected teak wood has stunning colour variations that result in a truly unique and special floor.
