Namibian Baskets
    $110.00
African Basket - Makalani Bowl - 11.5 Inches Across - #61888
African Basket - Makalani Bowl - 11.5 Inches Across - #61888

Approximately 11.5" Across x 3.25" Tall

In Namibia, Makalani palm leaves and vegetable-based dyes are woven into baskets using age old recipes handed down through generations.
  • You will receive the exact basket pictured above.
  • The Kavango and Ovambo people in Northeast of Namibia create these beautiful baskets from local Makalani palm leaves.
  • Plant materials are plentiful in this area of the Okavango Delta, which is the largest inland delta on earth and a true oasis in the Kalihari Desert.
  • Getting the natural dye to soak into the waxy palm leaves is very tricky and some weaving material may be left soaking in a dye bath for more than a week at a time.
  • A portion of the proceeds from each basket sold goes to a fund which provides educational opportunities for the girls of Namibia.
  • Weave quality, basket size, difficulty of producing dye colors, and complexity of pattern all combine to determine the prices on these one-of-a-kind creations.
