The raw material is the boat itself. It is also, on one hand the life of the boat and that of its former owner and family. The history of a livelihood. And on the other hand, the union of fishing and carpentry in Africa. The wood of the boat doesn’t hide the thousands of nautical miles navigated along the African coast. Therefore the value is not only in the appearance but also in the history of each boat.

All From Boats’ furniture is made from reclaimed boat timber, generally hard woods such as ulin (iron), teak and intaran (mahogany). Their source boats are found on the islands of Bali, Java, Lombok, Sulawesi and Kalimantan.

There is no pressure to sell and at he end of the transaction, everyone is happy. allfromboats.com
