the "legs" of a table
The handcraft cohoperative is the home of truly beautiful carved wooden objects. There are several cohoperatives in town - only one being state run. It's the one that sells carvings of much better quality than the others, and you can also see the artisans at work.
What to buy: The most beautiful things I saw were some little tables with carved elephants - and some really peculiar chairs in Lamu style: you can take them apart in two pieces so that they are easy to carry on the plane.
What to pay: Not too expensive, considering the quality. The price depends on your bargaining skills
Directions: about 2 kms from the old town in Malindi
Theme: Local Craft
