The shop and meeting place for art and culture from the African continent.
Maison Baobab is a shop as well as a wonderful cultural meeting place in Biel’s old town. The Baobab range consists of African art and culture, and also supports African craftspeople from Mali and Ivory Coast. Der The main focus is on unusual jewellery, décor and accessories from Mali. There is a rich variety of cultures in Mali, with unique craftwork from the Tuareg, Dogon and Peulh.
An “excursion” to “Baobab”, which means tree of life, is a little trip to another world. You can also drink a Moroccan mint tea or coffee here, or indulge in Malian music (the blues originated in Mali). You will also find African literature, and you can borrow or buy books.
