    IMG_4579.jpeg Hi! I've been trying to identify these small baskets that I found at a thrift store in Naples, Florida, but I'm having trouble and am hoping someone here can help. I was thinking they are Apache, but I can't find many examples of Apache baskets that are mostly dark with a light design like my baskets, so I may be totally off.

    They are African, from Botswana, made from fiber of the leaves from the mokola palm tree.

    Thank you all! I appreciate your help! I was starting to think they could be Pakistani or African because I couldn't find any clearly authentic Apache baskets that looked like mine, but I never would have known for sure. It's so hard to tell what is real and what are imitations without that expert knowledge. Thanks again!
