Teak vs Iroko
The embargo against the Myanmar Timber Enterprise (MTE) has made genuine Burmese Teak illegal. As an alternative there is Afrormosia and Iroko. Iroko is the clear choice as Afrormosia is CITES listed and the grain structure is too different. In this episode I look at Teak vs Iroko and how the industry responds (or doesn't) to changes like the removal of a popular species entirely.
