Botswana Basket

Botswana baskets are widely regarded as some of the finest in Africa. Their high quality, outstanding workmanship and originality have gained them international recognition, and they are now exported to many countries around the world.

The baskets are made of the mokolwane palm (Hyphaene petersiana) which are cut and boiled in natural earth-tone colouring.

Traditionally, baskets had many practical uses – to store seeds, grains, to transport food, etc. The shape of the basket varied according to its function.
