Supporting sustainable livelihoods

Crafthood is a social enterprise that reinvests monies gained into the continual upliftment of crafting communities in Botswana. We work in partnership with producer centres and groups in the north west of Botswana, supporting them with product development and quality control, encouraging them to celebrate their pride in their skill and their beautiful country whilst creating a platform for fair-trade sales and a sustainable industry.

We're proud of


inspire | live | unite

Every item is hand crafted and made to the beat of an African heart, in a homestead filled with laughter and joy.  Each basket is unique and the exquisite patterns are an expression of life and the natural surrounds such as ‘running ostrich’, ‘tears of the giraffe’ and the ‘rondavel’.  Botswana baskets are arguably the baskets of the world and North West Botswana is proud to be the home of this wonderful artistic expression.
