White Teak shutters and blinds will bring a lightness of design to any interior space. Lightweight, naturally light in colour and with light-touch functionality, these shutters and blinds will sit comfortably in almost any architectural and décor style.  American Shutters’ soon to be launched White Teak shutters and blinds are also light on the environment. They are manufactured from timber sourced from FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified plantations in South East Asia. FSC is recognised internationally and supports environmentally, socially and economically responsible forest management worldwide. It also tracks FSC certified material from production to market, providing a link that gives end-users the assurance that the timber used in the end product was harvested from responsibly managed forests.
