Botswana basket: Ribs of the Giraffe (B 465)
€29.50 (Price including tax)
The design of this basket has been inspired upon traditional stories of the fascinating plants, animals and people that inhabit the Okavango region in Botswana. The baskets are made from Mokola palm leaves and their colours are derived from natural dyes extracted from roots and bark. Botswana baskets represent some of Africa’s most exquisite and culturally significant art forms.
It often takes months to weave a larger basket. The price depends on the weaving quality and size of a basket. This is why two baskets of the same size may differ in price because of different weaving qualities.
Every basket is unique. You’ll receive the basket shown in the photograph.
This basket was made in Etsha.
