Karibu, be our guest

Karibu, be our guest, and experience local craft culture at the  MOTO Workshop&Museum.

The Museum offers a unique collection of palm plaited items from the entire Swahili coast, attractively presented in a village setting. Their individual importance and use is explained to you by knowledgable guides, along the daily routine of a typical Zanzibari household.

The fascinating production process of ukili – from the date palm´s frond to the colourful basket – is described in text and object and can afterwards be experienced by you hand in hand with local craftswomen in a 30min workshop.

Members of craft cooperatives take turns in showing you how hand-selected leaves of the wild date palm go through a timely transition and evolve into fashionable accessories or classic, contemporary pieces for the home.

Supervised and supported by an artisan you may design and batik a t-shirt or table cloth with Zanzibar or Tanzanian motives. Plain t-shirts and fabrics purchasable.

In our workshop experience the making of the famous Swahili loin cloth, the kikoi – handwoven on wooden looms.
