Wayeyi Traditionals

Wayeyi Traditional crafts


The main producers of baskets are the women of the Wayeyi and Hambukushu tribes in northwestern Botswana in Gumare and Etsha villages. The closed baskets with lids are used for storing grain, seeds, and sometimes sorghum beer. Large, open bowl shaped baskets are used by the women for carrying items on their heads and for winnowing grain after it has been threshed.
