Almost all KLEO Boat wood are from Tegal. It is a district in Central Java, Indonesia. Tegal located in Northern Shore of Java Island. The geolocation makes Tegal always be a seaport from time to time.
Based on Indonesia history, long time ago, Tegal is one of the most crowded port in Indonesia. Many traders from China, Arab, and Europe come and transit at Tegal. Until now, it still a seaport, but mostly for fishing boat that comes from many area in North Java.
KLEO collects the broken and abandoned boats, give them second life value as KLEO furnitures.
We manually dismantle all our boats. The process is not easy, only experienced worker could do it very well. dismantle the boat wrecks to save the wood, not destroy it. We have to keep the woods as big as possible. Every single broken boats have different condition, for saving big chunk of woods we have to understand each boats. Machine only can dismantle the boat wrecks into small pieces, it can not dismantle the boat efficiently to keep the big woods.
