The Ideal Gift Basket " KISONZO"

The ''Kisonzo" basket is woven from reeds which grow along the river banks in Singida region Tanzania.And ''Kisonzo" refers to a single basket, for more than one they are called "Visonzo".

This baskets are made by women (wanyiramba and Wanyaturu tribes) as an extra income generation activity after harvesting their food and cash crops in the fields.they make them in different sizes, patterns,colours and colour combination.

The basket can be used as a fruit basket, as a storage container for dry food such as peanuts, container for serving dry food. container for storing non food small items or as a decarative item.And that is why it is an ideal gift basket.

The women also make colourful table mats in different patterns.
At Sanaa Zetu we have in stock  of the beautiful Singida baskets and other products. You are most welcome.

Today i would like to  talk about the Cow horn. cow horn as depicted from the name it is a substance which is hard as a bone,with properties similar to those of finger nails. The tip of the horn is conical in shape,and in most cases horns coming from the same cow  are alike.  The cow use the horns to defend itself from its enemies.

In the past cow horn had many uses, to name a few, it was used   as a drinking container, a media for sucking poison from a snake bite,a musical instrument, a trumpet, handle for tools.... etc.

In recent times craftsmen took advantage of the properties of the cow horn, by designing and producing a wide variety of products.
