Bathong! Would you pay R10K for a makoti blanket?
Show anyone in South Africa a picture of a makoti blanket, and they’ll know what exactly what is.
A common item in many African households, the makoti blanket or shawl is worn by a bride (makoti) during traditional wedding ceremonies, as a knee blanket, part of home decor and even often a handy item to have in your car for an impromptu picnic.
You can pop into any PEP store and pick a blanket, in any colour, for an average price of R160 depending on size.
