What is Sisal?

Sisal is a species of Agave that is grown in Africa and throughout other areas of the world. It is commonly used to make ropes and other durable material. Khutsala™ Artisans cut the sisal, remove the green part of it, and dry it in the sun in order to use it as the top part of these ornaments. See the complete process here.

 

What Are Lucky Seeds?

Lucky seeds, more commonly known as “Swazi baby teething beads” or River beads, are found in Eswatini. This tropical wild grass seed has been gathered and used for generations by local Swazi women for their babies to chew on as a natural teething remedy. They are referred to as Job’s tears in other parts of the world.
