Katima Craft Centre

 

Katima Craft Centre offers a truly unique selection of Caprivian artefacts. We carry handcrafted wooden sculptured items as well as a wide selection of pottery and woven baskets and other items. These artefacts allow you to truly celebrate the cultural heritage and diversity of the Caprivians. These handmade pieces of Caprivian artists are crafted by the leading African artists.

The major centre in Caprivi, the gateway to Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and the Chobe National Park in Botswana, is Katima Mulilo. The proximity of the region to Angola, Botswana ans Zambia with their active craft industries, gives impetus to Caprivian artists and craftspeople. Caprivi pots and baskets are noted for their distinctive beauty and symmetry.

The art of the potter in Caprivi has evolved over time. Beautiful pots with spherical bodies and slender necks are created, often with intriguing patterns and interesting firing techniques, making them much sought after by collectors.
