After spending the past 10 years living in Bali, 2Gypsies
owners Annemieke and Allan spotted an opportunity to showcase
beautiful Indonesian furniture to Otago. 2Gypsies specialises
in providing beautifully designed classic and contemporary
furniture pieces made from recycled teak.
What makes recycled teak so incredible?
One of the great things about recycled teak is that it stays
young forever. In fact teak is so special that rulers had
their palaces made from it, and shipbuilders built whole
fleets from it, knowing its amazing ability to resist water
and decay. The Dutch discovered teak has its own natural oil
that prevents water being retained in the wood. This also
means it doesn't rust or othewise damage metal it comes into
Resistant to insects and incredibly strong, recyled aged teak
won't crack or split even when outdoors. In fact it has been
shown that teak that had spent decades outdoors, with a bit
of love and care, will look as good as the day it was made.
2Gypsies' unique individual pieces
2Gypsies works closely with the makers of its furniture and
insists that all pieces be unique and truly one of a kind.
