ScanZa Carpentry Workshop in Zanzibar specialises in the manufacture of high quality articles of indoor and outdoor furniture and accessories made out of this unique timber, both for the local and the international market.

ScanZa undertakes commissions for private and corporate customers, and large projects such as hotels, restaurants and bars. Our expertise encompasses environmental conditions, architectural requirements and bespoke quality manufacturing.

ScanZa’s designs display both contemporary and traditional influences. The aesthetics of the cocowood are enhanced with good simple design to produce elegant and functional solutions for furniture and interiors.

The cocowood timber that ScanZa uses comes from senile palms. That is they are past the age (60years) whereby they produce nuts and fronds. This renders them of little use to the farmers who are relieved to sell them for timber so they can plant new productive trees.
