Gloster’s journey began in Africa where they first started making furniture for local market consumption. Over 10 million pieces of furniture and 50 years of growth later, they’re a worldwide name. The company continues to uphold the values they started with and promotes environmentally friendly and ethical practices, using discarded branches and tree stumps to make the small components of their furniture. After transferring their African factory expertise to Asia in order to access the plantation grown teak only available in Indonesia, Gloster grew to be the principle high-end brand for teak outdoor furniture. Although their expertise lies with teak, Gloster has firmly established itself as a global leader in woven, aluminum, stainless steel and outdoor lounge furniture.
