The Story behind this basket:
NGWAO BOSWA (Gomare Botswana)
This basket is made by Ngapambe
In 1986 around 40 basket weavers united in Gumare to form a cooperative called Ngwao Boswa, which means "A Traditional You Have Inherited”. Twice a week they met for basket weaving at their house in Gomare village, from where they also sell their baskets.
Basketry in Gomare is, as in other remote rural areas, an ancient agricultural craft. The basket weavers, who are mainly women use locally gathered natural materials. Formerly the baskets were, and some still are, made for utilitarian domestic needs.
There are different basic shapes woven in different techniques which are determined by their particular purpose, usually storage or transport of grain, beer and herbs. The symbolic patterns crafted through generations are related to nature or legends.
The main raw material utilized to produce Botswana baskets is the fibre of the "vegetable ivory" palm tree (Hyphaene petersiana ), called Mokola in Botswana.
To create intricate designs, the natural cream-coloured palm fibre is dyed shades of brown with the roots or bark of the Motlhakola (Euclea divinorun ) and Motsentsila (Berchemia discolor ) trees.
