Dhow Bed - 'Malindi'
Gorgeous dhow bed created from up cycled hardwoods and incorporating a blue and white ‘mardidadi’ section; a decorative piece that would have ran along the ship toward the prow. The frame has been given a Swahili style whitewash (also available in natural) finish and accommodates a king size mattress.
The bed is made by hand from hardwoods reclaimed from a 40 year old dhow ship, each piece individually treated by Tribal Gallery carpenters in Kenya. Every piece of wood carries traces of its past life as a working ship. The wood has been lovingly transformed by hand and will be enjoyed for decades.
This piece is available made-to-order in Swahili whitewash style or natural finish, with a 4 week lead time.
