The Iringa baskets are very durable and weave with an herb called Milulu. In this area of ​​the country called Iringa, there is a long history in the manufacture of a basketry, and this form of art is part of the rich history of the Hehe people.
Each basket is carefully woven by hand for seven days. First, the Milulu grass should be harvested along certain rivers in the highlands of southern Tanzania. This often requires long walks to collect the grass and then take it back to the local artisan village. Once harvested, it must be dried to the sun to prepare it for tissue. When Milulu's herb dries properly, the basket is woven by hand, carefully interlacing these drawings that form traditional patterns, full today.

All products are handmade with a lot of love and with 100% natural and ecological materials. They can vary slightly in size, shape and color, but they are 100% original and unique!

Instructions for use:

- Sol: Because the fibers are natural, keep the products dyed outside the direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural discoloration.

To recover it, it is recommended to spray with water to moisten the fibers and remodel to taste. If not enough, the basket can be submerged for a maximum of 10 seconds in water, drain and remodeling.
