Sisal plantation

Agave (Sisal) plantation near Tanga, German East Africa (Tanzania). The Sisal hemp plant was brought to East Africa from Mexico by Germans in 1893. Later it became common also in British East Africa (Kenya) and is still today an important export product. Sisal is used for carpets, clothes and also for traditional huts in Africa.


Usambara mountains
