Milulu Reed Storage Basket - Yellow, Small

This stunning handwoven basket is made from Milulu grass, a reed-like swamp grass in East Africa. Milulu grass reeds can be harvested carefully from the marsh without removing the entire plant, dried in the sun, dyed with natural dyes, and split for weaving. The closeness to the earth of both maker and product gives these beautifully crafted baskets widespread appeal.

    Meet the Artisans

    Handwoven by talented rural Tanzanian women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.
