Emerson Zanzibar

We want to introduce you to some exhibitors at the Emerson Zanzibar Christmas Bazaar – here are the first of many:

Mohammed Bilal, Coconut bowl artisan.
Back in the 1990s while working as a waiter in Matemwe, Mohammed met a Kenyan who was an expert in bowl-making. He trained Mohammed in the art. In 2005 Mohammed got a chance to work as assistant hotel manager but due Covid Mohammed has again picked up the craft he loves so much. He also makes earrings, rings, hairpins and other items from coconuts, all individually designed, but prefers to focus on the coconut bowls, as this is his specialty.

Mwanaussi Haji, Kofia maker
Mwanaussi grew up in the countryside in Nyamanzi and it is here that her grandmother from Makunduchi taught her how to make kofia after school hours. It takes up to 2 months to make one kofi, which she does in between all her household duties. Mwanaussi has taught her young sister to make kofia and thinks it is important that the tradition lives on.

The bazaar will be like a treasure hunt: spread throughout Emerson Spice and Emerson on Hurumzi, you’re invited to explore all the different arts and crafts on offer. Watch artists and artisans at work – woodcarvers, sandal-makers, roaming coffee sellers – and enjoy the spirit of buying little gifts and zawadi for each other. There will also be a fun family-friendly competition each day of the Bazaar.

Come and join us from 19th December to 3rd January. Opening at 4pm on the 19th and then daily from 10am to 6pm until 3rd January 2021.
