These musical rattles are traditionally worn around the ankles by Tswana, San, Zulu and other tribes. The cocoon (Gonometa postica) is collected from the wild. The moth is removed and small stones are placed inside.

You will receive two rattles, one for each ankle. Each rattle is over 1 metre (3 feet) in length.
The rattles are created by women from the Baharutshe tribe of eastern Botswana.
The rattles are called Tsorosi in the Ju’/hoansi San language and Matlhoa in Setswana.
Check the pictures to see a pair being worn during a trance dancing ceremony by Nharo San at Eaton’s Farm, Ghanzi District, Botswana in 2005.
