Upcycled, Uplifted & Circular Economy

CHAKO means ‘yours’ in Swahili, no better word to describe our products.

The tourism industry creates a lot of opportunities for Zanzibar and its people. At the same time it also creates waste. Waste is difficult to process on the island. Things like brochures, bottles or glass can easily be given a new life.

This is exactly what we do at CHAKO!

All CHAKO products are locally made in our workshop, combining waste and local materials. This way we stimulate the Zanzibar community and create a circular economy while offering you a nice souvenir to take home! ♻
