The Serengeti teak range is all-natural wood products; therefore, each piece may be affected by its environment. Over time, teak products may develop splitting and cracks; these perfectly imperfect traits form the organic beauty of teak furniture.
Due to the inherent qualities of teak branches, they may have uneven texture, tones, and colour variations. Please note that changes in the colour tone of teak can occur over time.
A characteristic of teak is the leaching of natural oils which means that unavoidable staining on soft materials may occur.
The natural tendency for teak is to patina beautifully into a silvery-grey look, which develops over time in natural conditions, including sunlight and ambient moisture. The benefits of teak allow it to gracefully weather while maintaining its integrity so as not to degrade like other hardwoods and softwood.

Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, elements such as texture, colour, and pattern may vary piece to piece.
Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features.
Natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults, rather part of the natural life and beauty of timber.
We believe the use of natural materials and hand-crafted elements result is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product's tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
Weather events such as high humidity and dampness, especially after periods of high rainfall, commonly cause mildew and mould to grow on the surface of wood.
While we favour the look of raw sanded wood, coating wood pieces with a wood sealer/water repellent product such as varnish or lacquer can help to make mould easier to remove from the surface or keep it from growing.
A coated product will cause moisture to bead up and run off the surface instead of penetrating and allowing mould spores and mildew to grow. Please note that adding a coating to the product will change the look and feel of the wood.
If you prefer to retain the original raw look that we favour and mould does appear, using a mould remover as soon as possible after the mould develops is advised to clean and maintain your product.
Should the mould have sunken roots into the wood, light sanding with fine sandpaper may become necessary to restore your piece.
Humidity causes mould to grow. Limited airflow and humidity create a microclimate for mould to develop. In some cases, mould will begin growing on furniture, clothing and other contents within the home.
It is not an inherent fault of the furniture, clothing and other contents; rather humidity or dampness in the air can supply enough moisture for mould growth on any surface.
Mould can occur anywhere, and humid climates provide the optimal conditions for the fungi to grow and thrive on any surface.
