    Afar basketware

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the village of Bankoualé we saw local Afar baskets. They told us that the Afar women have a cooperative craftcentre in Ardo not far from Bankoualé. The profits of any purchase go directly to the women and community. So we decided to make a stop on our way back out of the valley.

    When we arrived in Ardo the doors of the craftcentre were closed, but after a few minutes somebody came with the key. We were surprised by the huge amount of articles in the shop.

    What to buy: All kind of local basketware. We decided to buy a small basket and a colourful coaster.

    colourful baskerware the crafcentre the colourful doors are closed our purchase is written down our purchase of 2200 Djibouti franc
