The commercial production and marketing of handicraft products from Botswana has been taking
place for the past three decades. This paper presents the broad characteristics of Botswana's
handicraft producers, products, raw materials used in craft production, and marketing structures.
This overview has been compiled from knowledge obtained during the period 1982-1993 while
the author worked directly in the Botswana craft industry, and from data collected for her PhD
thesis on the economic and social significance of Botswana's handicraft industry (Terry 1999).
