Wow. Thank you Sandra for the compliments!
-The Dada Team
message from: Sandra
This summer I visited your shop when I was in Zanzibar for vacations. I bought home one of your lovely soaps (the one with zanzibari sand in it) and it turned out to be the best soap I’ve ever tried! I have worked in cosmetics for many years so I’ve tried a lot of different soaps… none has ever even come close to yours
I live in Sweden and won’t visit Zanzibar anytime in the near future. Do you have any retailers in Europe or do have any possibility to take orders and ship to Sweden?
Thanks in advance

The KIDOTI women’s cooperative exists since twenty years. Twenty rural women are running a small business, producing soap selling it to shops and hotels in northern Unguja.
In 2011, during the first Dada session with the Kidoti women a marketable, contemporary range of soaps was developed based on the group’s pre-existant products and raw materials locally available. The group’s new soap range was branded “Kidoti”.
In a successive Dada session in 2012, the soap packaging was finalized. The combination of a high quality printed label and natural banana leaf has resulted in a product both ethnic and contemporary.
Voila, who says we in Zanzibar can’t make soap?
Kidoti soaps samples have been placed in Lodges in the Northern circuit for market research.
Kidoti soaps available at the Dada/Moto shop in Zanzibar, Stown Town, Hurumzi Street 416
… or through ASILIA, please contact Saidi +255 778183737

Dijon mustard is a french style mustard from the whole seeds of brown Indian mustard, vinegar, and spices.
The mustard seeds are carefully sun-dried and then ground on a traditional arabic stone mill.
Freshly mixed with vinegar the mustard seeds preserve their naturally sharp flavour and high content of unsaturated oil and protein.
Enjoy with meats, sausages, cheese, on sandwiches or as an ingredient for sauces and salad dressings.

Ethical shopping in Zanzibar -
article by My Destination Tanzania
Nestled in a small clearing in the middle of Zanzibar’s lush northern forest, a gaggle of women sit in a shaded porch, talking and laughing. The vibrant greenery surrounding their brightly patterned kangas frames a picture of an idyllic Saturday morning spent making arts, crafts and goods with friends.
I’m feeling a bit intimidated as I walk up – I’m interrupting the work day for the sake of learning a little more about the Dada women’s cooperative, its products and its participants. The women are shy at first, not wanting their pictures taken, but quickly warm to me and my companions. Within a few moments, we’re grating soap, rolling out pasta, and smashing cinnamon bark into dust in a giant pestle and mortar …
