Akamba Handicraft Industry Cooperative Society

Arts & Crafts in Mombasa

This cooperative employs an incredible 10,000 people from the local area. It’s also a non-profit organisation that produces fine woodcarvings, from animal shapes and polished calabash bowls to stick-thin Maasai figures, replica Maasai shields, salad spoons and elaborate masks. Kwa Hola/Magongo matatus (minibuses) run right past the gates from the Kobil petrol station on Jomo Kenyatta Ave. Very fair prices.
