Founded in 2012 in the Algarve by the trio Zdzish, Barbara and Nicholas Kazanowski, Sekani Kayaks
makes an impressive collection of wooden kayaks. Handmade under request, each kayak stands out for the attention to detail and classic lines, “like a true Arabian thoroughbred, in which beauty, strength and agility blend timelessly with performance”. Like Ideal & Co with the vegetable tanned leather and selvedge canvas, Sekani also uses quality materials to handcraft their kayaks, picking the best American red cedar. Lightweight and timeless, Sekani kayaks are true works of art, enhancing the beauty without compromising functionality, speed and strength.
The Kazanowski’s about their work: “We have a passion for boats and in particular wooden kayaks, so as a family of woodworkers we realised a longtime dream and started to build kayaks for ourselves. Following the admiration and praise we received for our boats we decided to start a commercial venture, and Sekani Kayaks was born.”
