Michael Yoffe - Botswana Baskets

Basketwork on Display -- The joint-owner of Textures, in Oxford Terrace,
Jenie Meyer, displays one of the Botswana baskets from an exhibitino being
held in the shop until August 27. The baskets are made by members of the
Mbukushu, Yei, and Kung tribes from palm fronds. A coiled weaving technique
is used and no two baskets are alike. The export of Botswana basketry is
part of a United Nations development programme project and most of the money
earned goes back to the producer.
