About the Gloster brand.
The brand, Gloster, has a vibrant history that can be traced back to a group of passionate entrepreneurs creating furniture in West Africa around 1960. After growing demand and working on their craft, they moved their factory to Indonesia, where all their furniture has continued to be manufactured. Passion and pride are the pillars of every part of the Gloster brand and are the two things that have enabled the brand to continually make some of the world’s finest outdoor furniture.
Gloster are renowned for their use of teak as the primary material used in all their furniture. Not only has this material been a benchmark hardwood for furniture for over 700 years, it also has a beautiful buffed sheen, or soft natural finish that has now become synonymous with Gloster products. With an opposition to mass-produced furniture, Gloster manufactures every rounded corner and every intricate joint completely by hand with the help of the talented craftsmen that fill their factories.
This attention to detail and people-focused approach means that every customer can feel the link between themselves and the people who built their furniture. Alongside their own design know-how and expertise, Gloster all work with several world-renowned designers to help create some of the most timeless and stylish outdoor furniture pieces.
Leaders in outdoor teak furniture Teak, the primary material used across all Gloster products, is indigenous to only four countries across the world; Burma, Laos, Thailand and Asia. However, due to unsustainable forestry practices, natural teak forests have all but disappeared in every country aside from Burma, and has been kept alive in plantations across South and Southeast Asia.
Not only is teak one of the most sought-after timbers for furniture, it is also one of the most protected. With the majority of plantations being controlled by a government body, Gloster has a team of 22 graders who spend their time travelling across Java to source ideal logs for production—to ensure that Gloster customers always get the best of the best.
