Frequently Asked Questions



I am concerned about Rain Forest deforestation.
Is the teak wood used in the manufacture of Westminster's furniture certified for sustainable practices?


As one of the leading online distributors of teak furniture in North America, Westminster Teak recognizes the influence it plays on the industry and the impact it has on the environment specifically in regard to forest conservation and management.

We have made it our company’s policy to source our teak wood from well managed, credibly certified plantations. Our factory was the first to join Nusa Hijau, the Indonesian Chapter of the Global Forest Trade Network (GFTN), an initiative of WWF®(World Wildlife Fund) to eliminate illegal logging and improve the management of valuable and threatened forests.

We purchase wood only from Perum Perhutani, the government-managed plantation that promotes biodiversity and the livelihoods of the people that depend on them by allowing multiple crops to be planted amidst teak trees, for the benefits of the local economy. Perum Perhutani offers both SVLK and FSC certified wood. And, because it is the only source in our supply chain for wood base material, we have 100% transparency; we know exactly where all our lumber comes from for every component of our furniture, from the forest floor to retail floor.

All of our teak wood holds SVLK (Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu) or INDO-TLAS (Indonesian Timber Legality Assurance System) Certification. SVLK certification not only ensures that only legal timber is exported from Indonesia, but effectively manages sustainable forestry practices while reducing illegal logging and trading. Required by law for Indonesian timber to be exported, you can be assured that the furniture you purchase is a finely crafted product, from legally and sustainably harvested wood.
