Basketworks Portugal
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Basketworks

Another of the specialities of Madeira is wickerwork. Baskets of all sizes, place mats, armchairs and a whole host of other decorative objects are on sale in all the islands' villages. Camacha, about 6 miles from Funchal, is the centre of production. Here, a large shop makes and sells all types of wicker products. In the basement of the shop we can witness the skill of the master craftsmen.
