Carved Coasters

This set of 4 coasters has been hand-carved with designs inspired by the Zanzibari culture. The teak wood comes from a local plantation and presents beautiful natural variations which makes each coaster unique. The set comes with 2 different designs and is stackable and presented in a small holder.
Please be aware that because of the handmade nature of the product, the design and colours may vary slightly from the image shown. The wood comes with natural variations in colour.

The set has been hand carved by our disabled artisans, inspired by Zanzibari designs.

Meet the Artisan

Claud started to work at Neema Crafts in 2009 and has worked in many different departments for the past 10 years. He enjoys his job in the carpentry department the best and loves working together with so many other people with disabilities.

He was born a healthy child but when he turned three, he fell sick. His legs stopped working properly and hasn’t been been able to walk again since. He had two dreams: to be a photographer and/or own a shop but finding customers was difficult and he didn’t earn enough. He was offered a job at Neema Crafts and the organization helped me make income and also helped him build a new house. Although he lives alone, he is happy because “his neighbours are his colleagues!” Now that he has managed to save enough money to fulfill one of his dreams, he has also started a little shop outside his house, which he runs on weekends and evenings. He hopes that this shop will continue to grow, so that maybe one day someone else can benefit from his job at Neema.
