History of The Jinggo Janggo
The Jinggo Janggo comes from the traditional construction sites of the Bira region, south of Sulawesi (Indonesia). It was built in 2007 in the village of Tanah Beru which stretches along a beach where the impressive and famous Phinisi (traditional Indonesian boats) were built.
It took more than 18 months of intensive work by several tradesmen (6 carpenters, joiners, cabinet makers) as one after another they worked to build this boat fully made of wood.
For the record, these traditional boats, also called Bugis-Makassar, existed as early as the fifteenth century when they sailed on the inland seas of Indonesia. However, these boats also left a foot print on the trade routes in the open sea, and can now also be found in the Philippines, Australia … and even in Madagascar.
