These beautiful cocowood soap dishes are hand made in Zanzibar. The wood is handcrafted from the tree trunks (not the coconut shells) of unproductive African Tall Palms from the plantations on the island, as well as from trees that are being felled to make way for developments and infrastructure.
The dishes have sharp ridges which allows the water to drain away from the soap, helping your soap last longer. The wood is a hardwood which is lightly lacquered to make it waterproof. The dishes are available individually or as part of a gift pack.
Due to difficulties in shipping from Zanzibar, I only have a small quantity of these available for sale in the UK and won’t be restocking any time soon. To my knowledge, they are unique to the UK.
The square soap dish measures 9x9cm and the round is 8cm diameter.
