Memories of the islands of Mayotte

The craft is weak especially when compared to that of Madagascar. Indeed what we found in some shops are often the "Big Island".
If it is discreet, it is this: basketwork (woven raffia or lianas) with Sada hats, baskets, drumsticks and models of canoes and musical instruments made of wood, pottery, gold and silver worked very finely (to Sada yet), fans of marriage (Chicon). There are also salt Bandrélé in pretty bags, vanilla and essence of Ylang-Ylang.
