Welcome to Driftwood Art, Skiathos where you will find an amazing selection of natural, recycled or upcycled* products.
Every single one of our items has been carefully hand-crafted into a totally unique design. Virtually all of our products are made from natural resources such as driftwood or old olive wood.
Where possible, any additions we make such as the mirror glass, hinges, etc. are all re-cycled from old items. The only new parts are the electric cables, plugs and fittings on the lamps!
We pride ourselves on the re-cycling side of our work, which wholly embraces the environmentally-friendly aspect.
*Recycling is the process of turning waste materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. (Wikipedia)
*Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality, or for better environmental value. (Wikipedia)
Once part of a beautiful tree
You fell to earth and were taken by the sea
From where you came your secrets you hide
Carried over oceans by wind and tide
This island's shores to rest you came
To leave you there would be a crying shame
Redesigned, and fashioned with thoughtful flair
With skillful hands and lots of care
Not for you an end so plain
Your beauty brought to life again
