Mifuko's new Iringa collection has Finnish design elements added to the traditional basket weaving technique in the village of Iringa in Tanzania. Made from natural Milulu grass and produced by talented weavers, these baskets are both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Medium baskets with short handles can be used as shopping baskets and to store everything from toys to newspapers and magazines. Iringa baskets are stiffer than our Kiondo baskets and can't be folded. They remain in their shape when standing free. The color of Milulu grass changes over time. When the basket is first woven, the grass has a shade of green. Over time, the color will change from green to brown as shown in the product images. This process typically takes 1-2 months.

Following the fair trade practices of the World Fair Trade Organization, these baskets are produced to support women through flexible, safe work and extra income for families and communities. Each Mifuko product carries the name of its maker.
