our heritage gloster s roots can be traced all the way back to west africa in 1960 where a band of passionate entrepreneurs and furniture makers took the first steps on a long journey by the early 1970’s increased demand and access to plantation grown teak led us to move our factory to indonesia today the same passion conviction and pride that launched the gloster brand continues to fuel our business we may live in a different world than the one occupied by our founders but one thing remains the same we are furniture makers whose sole focus is to design and build the world’s finest outdoor furniture 01

teak the benchmark hardwood for fine outdoor furniture for more than 700 years with a beautiful buffed sheen or a soft natural finish every piece of gloster teak originates from carefully managed plantations and is thoroughly inspected to ensure that quality endures a close-grained hardwood with a high natural oil content teak is exceptionally hard wearing highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun rain frost or snow the first and only choice of timber for outdoor furniture 03

plantations gloster’s production of teak is characterised by our approach we understand our resources and we know our wood we only harvest what we have planted ourselves and every tree that is felled was placed in the soil by one of the gloster plantation’s workers workers whom we have known for a lifetime a gloster teak tree has a lifecycle of at least 50 years and our wood can always be traced back to its origin we believe that our customers must be able to trust us so we treat the world its resources and its people with respect 05

nature’s limited edition as with our own fingerprints so every teak tree is one of a kind even within the managed plantation environment no two trees share the same ground or reach for the light in the same way and thus each grows and matures in its own unique way with the natural variations and irregularities that give timber it’s inherent appeal every growth ring every knot and the graceful ebb and flow of the grain stands testament to its journey from young sapling to mature tree – a journey of up to 70 years 07

one of a kind in normal mass production timber is regulated ordered standardised to conform to strict manufacturing parameters but with the raw concept we celebrate the unpredictable and revere the irregularity of nature whether it be the colour or depth of the sap wood the texture of the bark or the checks and splits radiating from the centre of the log – each imperfection tells a story and marks each piece out as unique just as no two teak trees are the same so no two pieces of raw furniture will match 11
