Abstract: The heartwood of teak is one of the most durable woods and used in structural needs like furniture making, ship building and even for the construction of railway sleepers in the olden days. But the use of teak in traditional households is totally neglected today due to the wide use of metals and other synthetic materials like plastic. Traditional teak wood household articles used in Nilambur and Malappuram areas of Kerala have been described. Lack of social awareness on these traditional teak wood articles and the importance of transferring this knowledge to younger generations have been emphasized.
