About Proteak

About Teak Wood...Beautiful. Durable. Sustainable. Unique.

The finest of the tropical hardwoods, the teak tree has long been a favorite among ship builders, outdoor furniture makers, woodworking experts, and TV chefs for its unique properties. It’s durable, gorgeous, low maintenance, and it holds up against the elements. The key is that teak wood possesses a high content of natural oils that make it resistant to cracking, warping, rotting, insects, and fungi. Most importantly, teak contains components of natural oily resins called tectoquinones which actually repel moisture. That has allowed outdoor teak furniture to last over a century! Therefore, minimal care is required, but we recommend consistent and thorough care. Also, teak wood is softer than bamboo, making it easier and more forgiving on the knife. Every single Proteak cutting board is handmade, making every single one unique!

About Proteak...Renewable Forestry. Functional Artistry.

Founded in 2001, Proteak cultivates teak trees on their renewable plantations near the beautiful Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific coast, producing teak wood products like cutting boards, butcher blocks, and butcher carts, along with decking, countertops, lumber, and more. One of the few alternatives to Burmese teak, Proteak pride themselves on offering an eco- friendly, top quality, and conflict-free source of teak wood products, earning themselves a Forest Management certificate from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Zero fertilizers or irrigation are used, allowing the trees to grow slowly and naturally, while reducing their ecological footprint. Since renewable wood products store carbon, their plantations actually capture the CO2 emitted by 20,000 cars every day, permanently removing it from the atmosphere. In addition to cultivating teak trees on their reclaimed ranch lands, Proteak also preserves 6,000 acres of virgin tropical rainforests adjacent to them.
