Dhow Side Tables
Country of Origin: Kenya
Material: Reclaimed hardwoods (teak, camphor and mangrove)
Description: Lovely, useful side tables created from hardwoods reclaimed from an old dhow sailing ship and retaining some of the colouring from the original boat – aqua and scarlett. Completed in a Swahili style whitewash or natural finish and using the original nails from the ship as handles for 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.
