Kitu ni somi

The coconut water container is enmeshed in a knotted sinnet fibre net to which is attached a braided sinnet suspension cord. Water bottles such as this are available during the course of the day. Like other water containers, water was poured directly into the mouth rather than drunk directly from the shell.
