Square Iringa Basket - Natural

$ 38.00

Rated 4.8 out of 5
Based on 11 reviews
Please note: These baskets are handwoven in small batches with locally sourced Milulu grass, so the colors may first have green undertones in person. They will evolve subtly over time with exposure to light — often developing a golden hue. We celebrate these changes in the natural, ever-evolving materials that make each piece special.


HANDMADE IN TANZANIA

Spruce up any space with these beautifully simple natural baskets. Choose from six sizes, with uses ranging from a sturdy planter, stylish trash bin, or hand-woven storage solution.

Every purchase empowers artisans at Vikapu Bomba in Tanzania.

A treasured basket

Love this little basket. Filled it with large pine cones gathered on the Southern California coast but have it displayed in my desert home in Rancho Mirage. Wonderful to support your craftspeople and visually delight us with wonderful objects. Thank you.

classy basket

Beautifully made. Sides are soft, but stiff enough to stand upright (and support the rolled-up yoga mats I'm using it for.)
