Kalahari Quilts

Arts & Crafts in Gaborone

These stunning quilts are made by Batswana women, overseen by the engaging Jenny Healy, and are a unique craft to take home. Each one bears an individual imprint, although all do a good job at capturing the primary-colour-heavy palette that is Botswana’s sensory assault.

There’s a lot more than quilts: baby slings, cushion covers and the like are all for sale.

The actual shop was closed when we visited but should have reopened by the time you arrive: contact it via the website to make sure.
