Ethiopian Crafts in Addis

Should you want to find a good source be aware of Weyra Crafts.

They operate from two locations in Addis, one in Kotebe, and their shop in Mafi City Mall, Mezzanine Floor.

Hello, do you recommend them? You wrote beware which impose negative effect. We are staying in Addis for 4 nights and want to buy something traditional from Ethiopia. What do you recommend?

Is it best to buy crafts when on excursions out of Addis or does it not make much of a difference?

Addis craft shops, some of them honest and some over priced for tourists.
