Why choose wooden flooring in teak Java?
Teak is an exotic timber with high technical performance, chosen for its warm and enveloping tones. Cadorin utilises “Tectona Grandis Jati” teak that hails from the forests on the island of Java in Indonesia.
In contrast to Burma Teak (which, true to its name, comes from Burma), the dark streaks typical of this wood species do not emerge in the Java wood. Indeed, the wood fibres bear different golden shades that are truly pleasing to the eye. The solutions and possibilities of use are endless, both due to the great elasticity in extreme climatic situations (humid or dry) and for the wooden shades that lend themselves to different finishes and workings.
