Dhow Cabinet

Country of Origin: Kenya


Material: Reclaimed hardwoods (teak, camphor and mangrove)

Description: Wonderful one-of-a-kind cabinet created from hardwoods reclaimed from an old dhow sailing ship and retaining some of the striking colouring from the original boat – aqua, rose, mint and white. The old nails from the boat are used for the handles on the drawers.

Age & Overall Condition: Hardwoods reclaimed from 40 years old dhow ship, each piece individually treated by Tribal Gallery carpenters in Kenya. Each piece of wood carries traces of its past life as a working ship – holes in the wood where there were once nails for example. The wood has been lovingly transformed by hand and will be enjoyed for decades.
