Indonesia has at least 15,000 islands and more than 500,000 fishing boats, so its not surprising there are a great many old wooden boats that are no longer sea worthy that the fishermen need to find a good use for.  The boats or perahus are made of local hard wood and are invariably brightly painted to make them stand out amongst the 100s of other fishing boats.

Once a boat has reached the end of its life, if the boat timbers haven’t rotted or been too badly damaged they can be upcycled into colourful, weathered items of furniture or letters, each one of which is unique and immensely characterful.

By upcycling the boat timbers into letters and furniture the local fishermen and craftsmen of Indonesia are able to earn additional income.
