Arts & Crafts in Opuwo

Opuwo’s brightly painted self-help curio shop sells local arts and crafts on consignment. You’ll find all sorts of Himba adornments smeared with ochre: conch-shell pendants, wrist bands, chest pieces and even the headdresses worn by Himba brides. There’s also a range of original jewellery, appliqué pillowslips, Himba and Herero dolls, drums and wooden carvings.
