When it comes to reclaimed teak, Raft is a world expert. We are proud to be the world’s leading manufacturer and the world’s largest retailer of Forest Stewardship Council-certified 100% recycled teak. Reclaimed teak is wood which has originally been used for something else – perhaps part of a building, a bridge or even ship decking – which is no longer needed and so can be recycled to be made into a beautiful piece of furniture. Our philosophy to strive for excellence means we lead the way in innovation in this field, constantly developing our processes to create furniture which is solid, dependable and affordable. Our UK designers develop exclusive product ranges and Raft has its own factory in central Indonesia, employing more than 300 highly skilled local artisans who create our wonderful designs from this beautiful timber. Raft has innovative state-of-the-art solar kilns to improve the longevity and quality of the teak in an environmentally-friendly and effective way. Our teak items look stunning – but what’s more we can vouch that forests were not cut down to make them. Raft holds a Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody certification unique to recycled timber which means timber can be traced from its origin to the consumer. Each piece of our teak furniture is made to order – so our customers can be sure of an original, environmentally-friendly item gracing their home for years.
