BOAT FURNITURE

This is just a selection of the pieces that we have available at Gallery in the Lanes. Please email us at info@galleryinthelanes.co.uk for further details and images.

Boat Furniture is made from Indonesian fishing boats that are no longer seaworthy. Originally built by master Indonesian craftsmen using time honoured traditional building techniques and locally sourced materials. These boats were once beautiful and important tools for the fishermen. Over time, connectors rust, steel fails, and adhesive joints become loose. While the wood itself stays strong, the boats become too weak to survive the punishing seas and exhausting schedules. The purchase of these old boats allows the fishermen and their families to build anew or start a different chapter in their lives. The practice is eco friendly and fair trade.
