Materials

DHOW only uses wood from old dhows and local ngalawas which are already disused and recyclable. These boats are built with different woods such as teak and rosewood and sail at sea for an average of 40-50 years. Each piece is unique in color, style and size, each having its own story to tell.

Finishing

The finishes can be chosen by you according to your taste, be it wax, natural oil or vanish. Our workshop in Zanzibar can also create personalised furniture and completely custom designs. The delivery of these however requires a few months.
