Three African Animal Spin Drum Pencils

Swahili Modern


  • These handmade pencils blend learning with imagination and play. The pencils feature a functional spin drum made from cow hide and cowrie shells, and they produce a delicate beat when spun.

    Pencils measure approximately 8"L. Designs may vary due to the handmade nature of this product.

  • We work with Kenyan artisans who have life-long training in the making of traditional African instruments such as hand drums and spin drums. The artisans craft each instrument from sustainably sourced wood and scraps of goat skin. After each instrument is constructed, Nairobi artists hand-paint the instruments, making each one-of-a-kind.
