    Casa Elefante seems to be listed twice here at different locations, but neither is where I found the store. I visited this store today on Avenida de 25 de Septembre quite close to the railway station. and next to Las Vegas bar. (I am posting this on both listings.)

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a visit. The choice is huge - both in type of fabric, pattern and colour. Fabarics range from suiting, pretty childrens' cottons, traditional African batik print capalanas (sarongs) to political prints (great souvenirs). The quality is superb and the value is excellent. Staff are extra helpful and will pull out as many pieces as you want to see. Everything they have is on display - you will be spoilt for choice!

    First of all, Dabanga is a wonderfully creative woman with a lovely little private atelier. If you want unique, made in Mozambique handcraft jewelry you need to contact her. A friend working in Maputo brought me to her and I bought several pieces. It was a great find in a city that isn't very touristy and has limited craft jewelry in the market. Dabanga upcycles local materials, using a lot of wood, stones, and metals. Most pieces are asymmetrical or have some sort of variation that makes them really interesting. Her designs range from small and plain, to elaborate, and are often featured in local magazines and fashion events (I follow her on instagram now, lol). The best part is that she is a really sweet, funny, worldly lady who can attend you in Portuguese, English, Swahili, or French. You have to contact her on Whatsapp at +258842293521 for an appointment to see her creations, and I think it is worth it. I get compliments on her pieces all of the time and several of them have become my most favorite earrings. I am really glad I listened to my friend and went to check out her stuff that day because I got some really cool, funky jewelry made by a local with local materials.
