We love our new Teakhaus boards, but many of you may not know about the fantastic benefits and the background of teak cutting boards. Keep reading for all of the reasons you need a personalized Teak Cutting board from Carved Solutions in your kitchen.

Benefits of Teak Wood

Teak wood has a naturally high oil content allowing it to repel water easily. Historically, ship hands would wash the teak decks with salt water, which is a testament to this wood type’s durability. The tight wood grains and high oil content are the reason for this wood’s durability, not to mention the beautiful colors and grain of these cutting boards.

History of Teak Wood

Historically, teak wood is used for building ships and decks- so it must be pretty durable, right? Correct! This wood type has been used in building for centuries, and there are many reasons to explain why. According to Teakhaus, this wood was even deemed “royal timber” due to its strong and durable qualities and use for creating high-end furniture.

At one time, teak was a rarity due to its native habitat. To this day, teak wood is native to only India, Thailand, Laos, and Burma. Still, many natural teak forests are becoming obsolete due to unsustainable logging practices, as reported by Gloster. Now, most teak wood that you come across is grown in Indonesia because it thrives in the subtropical climate found there.

Is it sustainable?

Each of our teak boards is sustainably and responsibly sourced, but what exactly does this mean? Teakhaus cutting boards are certified by the FSC® (the World’s Most Trusted Sustainable Forest Management Organization). This certification proves that your board has been responsibly produced from well-managed forests and sustainably created every step of the way.

These teak boards are also certified by the Rainforest Alliance, an international non-profit organization working at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests to support responsible business practices. The Rainforest Alliance focuses on Three Pillars of Sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. This means that every step in sourcing these teak cutting boards was completed as responsibly as possible.
