A short study of woodworking companies shows that the import of teak-wood dwindled in the 1970s and gradually came to an end by the early ‘80s. Goodwood, Kalmar and Dansk designs were some of the oldest producers and importers. The oil embargo in the 1970s increased the cost of shipping. This, coupled with a number of other factors like increased cost of production and raw material, and changing trends in home décor, caused the dissolution of all companies.
