Swakara is made from South West African Karakul sheep. The sheep live in Namibia and are essential in regenerating and keeping grass and seeds from disappearing from the dry desert. The sheep preserve the fragile ecosystems and are considered as a sustainable resource. The areas are so dry that it is impossible to practice conventional farming and therefore the Swakara industry is a key income for the Namibian communities.
