Product description

These simple yet durable baskets are handwoven by women in rural Tanzania from milulu grass dyed to a rich black. They are useful for storage in every room of the home.

Sold singly. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary.

Approx Dimensions:
Small: 10"D x 11"H
Medium: 12-13"D x 12"H
Large: 14-15"D x 13"H
Please expect up to a 2" size variance (this allows baskets of the same general size to be nested together when shipping from Tanzania).

NOTE: Iringa baskets are shipped flattened into a box. You can shape your basket by wetting the straw and shaping the basket with your hands, then allowing it to dry.

Crafted from: Milulu grass, natural dye
Made in: Tanzania

We believe that hardworking African artisans, producers, and export agents hold the key to their own personal success and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace. We can extend each artisan's channel of trades from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing them with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs, and haggled prices, most artisans in the network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.

Fair Trade Federation, a group of like-minded companies and organizations that adhere to:
providing fair payment to workers in developing nations
educating artisans and workers to increase their potential for advancement
ensuring the rights of children
developing products and processes that protect and conserve the natural environment
promoting fair trade as the standard in commercial exchanges
