Buy your basket work in Maun, Botswana! Which is your favorite?

Amazing basketwork in Maun, Botswana       IMG_0067      IMG_0065

On my recent visit to check out old haunts in Maun and my old school, Maun Secondary,  I was once again struck by the fabulous basketry skills of the artisans along the Okavango Delta. Their works are on display and for sale in a number of curio shops in Maun, but the very best are in the museum, many for sale. Don’t expect to pick these beauties up for a a few quid, they are expensive but when compared to what you see in Vic Falls, Livingston, Zambia Jo’burg, etc., they are way ahead of the game. You won’t regret having spent the money and you know you’re supporting a local economy and a form of art that will disappear as plastic bowl and other junk take over from the western world.   My favorite is number three, the fish basket.
