Mukecha is inspired by traditional African mortars that come in varying sizes; small ones for coffee bean grinding to large ones that allows the family or neighbors in rural areas to take turns helping each other out by grinding either corn, barley, wheat or other staple grain. Even though this is a back breaking and time consuming process, women sing which also help with their synchronization, taking turn pounding the mortar with the pestle in quick succession. Both the mortar and pestle are always made from the toughest wood available in each region so it can last a long time.
Use as end table or stool.
