Sailing back in time
Mimi our very own dhow is a project to keep Zanzibari traditions alive. During the Spice trade, Arab and Indian merchants sailed to Zanzibar using monsoon winds. Still today the dhow is the main vessel to transport goods to Zanzibar using the same sailing methods as done thousands of years ago.
Made by hand
Mimi was originally a fishing dhow and our carpenter Juma built the interior using only hand tools. Nails are handmade, sail sewed by hand. Mimi gets served only traditional maintenance methods- keeping the traditions alive.
