Dhow Bed

Country of Origin: Kenya


Material: Reclaimed hardwoods (teak, camphor and mangrove)

Description: 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 finish and accommodates a king size mattress.

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.
