Iringa Basket Makers

Iringa Basket Makers

Iringa Basket are handwoven in Tanzania, East Africa. Each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own home and community. Woven from mijuu grass, a reed-like swamp grass, iringa baskets are an indispensable utility item of Tanzania’s Hehe people. The fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs or haggled prices.
