Throughout our journeys we meet people making craft using locally sourced materials….We’ve collected traditional leather and ostrich eggshell bags from the bushmen of the Kalahari. In northern Botswana and Namibia, the Khwe bushmen create beautiful traditional baskets from makalani palm leaves and natural dyes .  Nearer the cities and towns, there are artists making animals out of  scrap metal, paper mache and reclaimed timber. Then there’s the township crafts where they create placemats made from food wrappers and thatching grass and radios (that work!) from bottle tops. Funky, innovative, eye-catching collectibles
A family from Mozambique have dedicated themselves to weaving by loom, making beautiful scarves and wraps in subtle natural tones
There’s more still, something for everyone …. Come and browse around!
