iringa tanzania baskets with brown striped rim
Interweaving natural and dyed grasses to create intricate patterns, Tanzanian artisans hand-craft these stylish Iringa baskets.
These all-natural baskets are handwoven from milulu, a reed-like grass that grows near the city of Iringa, Tanzania. The milulu makes durable baskets, which can be rinsed with cool water and reshaped as needed. Milulu grass reeds can be harvested carefully from the marsh without removing the entire plant. The reeds are dried in the sun, dyed with natural dyes, and split for weaving. The closeness to the earth of both maker and product gives these beautifully crafted baskets natural appea
Because this product is handmade, size and design placement will vary.
