Made in The Gambia: A day with silversmith

The Gambia is a country that is rich in talents and skills. We decided to get a closer look at one of them. Silver is very popular in The Gambia. If you look around, you will be able to see at least one ring and bangle on the hands of ladies and men. We are introducing an insight into the skills of gold and silversmith brothers Mamat Ndure and Njaga Njie.

OFFERED BY

Mamat & Njaga

Mamat and Njaga are members of an extended family of gold and silversmiths. They learnt the craft from their grandfather, who was a silver and goldsmith. They started when they were still at school, and after completing high school, they ventured into the business and opened their shop. It is almost 30 years now since they started as silversmiths.
