Market Days

Market days occur every third day. Weavers from surrounding villages come to town on foot, carrying their baskets, or by bicycle or motor bike with their baskets attached.  The process of negotiating then begins – each weaver has their own price and if they believe their basket is very beautiful or unique in shape, colour or weave they will charge accordingly.

At the conclusion of market day all purchases go into storage to await the addition of the leather trim and stuffing into sacks.
