Afrormosia does look somewhat similar to Teak, has similar working and mechanical properties, and is extremely durable applications; for these reasons, its used with a fair degree of success as a substitute for Teak.
As a species Afrormosia is listed was considered as endangered ‘CITES 1’ but is now listed as ‘CITES 2’ allowing limited use under very strict licenses with proven chain of custody. Maples & Birch strictly ensure that our supply adhere to this.
