The "V-LEGAL WOOD" certification in detail :
In response to the growing global demand for teak wood, and the consequent increase in the illegal logging of this valuable wood, the Indonesian government has introduced a certificate to ensure that the origin of this wood is controlled and verified as legal and authorised.
This SVLK, (short for “V-LEGAL” which stands for Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu) has been put in place to enable a SUSTAINABLE and RESPONSIBLE development of the timber industry.
We only work EXCLUSIVELY with Indonesian manufacturers and factories that can demonstrate that they scrupulously respect this traceability and transparency of their timber. (It is the same for all our selected suppliers with whom we collaborate, whatever the raw material used).
